After breakfast, transfer to Bole Airport for your flight to Afar. The Omo Valley expedition team will readily meet you at Semera airport and drive you to Mount Erta Ale, passing through dramatic landscapes on our 350-kilometer journey. Erta Ale, which translates as "smoking mountain" in the local Afar language, is one of only five active volcanoes in the world that form lava lakes, and it is home to the world's oldest permanent lava lake. The molten lake of lava glows a fiery red as the sun sets in a hot cauldron of bubbling basalt and burning rivulets, making for incredible photography. Overnight camping. (BLD)
Today, we will leave before breakfast to catch another sunrise glimpse of the volcano, then return for breakfast before continuing to Ahmedela base camp along unmarked sandy tracks, passing Afar villages along the way This afternoon and the following morning, we would explore Danakil Depression and lake shale, the crater lake of Lake Assale – Africa's lowest point (-150 m) as well as the world's most saline body of water . Its spectacular colors and unusual crystalline formations give it an almost alien appearance, making it one of Africa's most impressive natural phenomena. Dinner & Overight at Ahmed –Ela Camp site.
Once again, an early morning start is required. We set out on our journey to Aferera (afdera). Explore the Dallol hot springs ,a strange multicolored field of sulphurous hot springs filled with steaming conical vents, strange rock formations resembling ripples, and dotted with a rather sticky and coarse orange deposit resembling colored icing sugar. Dallol is well-known for being the world's hottest inhabited location. Then we proceed to Lake Afrera, which is surrounded by palm trees. Lake Afrera appears stunning at first glance, with its emerald-green waters overshadowed by the looming black basalt of Mounts Borale and Afrera, the dormant volcanoes that rise to 812 m and 1,295 m above its eastern and southern shores, respectively. The Afrera salt lake is home to local Afar people who harvest salt flakes using traditional methods, and it also holds Frachetti Island, the world's lowest lying island Overnight camping. (BLD)
