Djibouti: Lake Assal – Hotsprings

The area all around Lake Assal in Djiboutu is volcanic and lies on an active rift area where the Arabian peninsula and East Africa is being pulled away from the core of the African continent. While lying well below the sea level, the area is packed with fumaroles, hot springs, and other volcanic features. At one of the lowest point lie a series of super hot springs, spewing boiling hot water into the surrounding salt. The hotsprings are little known and you won’t find them on any maps.
