The Danakil Depression is a plain in the north of the Afar Region of Ethiopia, near the border with Eritrea. The area is a triple junction of three tectonic plates and has a complex geological history. It has developed due to Africa and Asia moving apart, causing rifting and volcanic activity. Erosion, inundation by the sea, and the rising and falling of the ground have all played their part in forming this depression, and it is a great place to hike.
