Eastern Ethiopia Tour

The Danakil Depression is the northern part of the Afar Triangle or Afar Depression in Ethiopia,      a geological depression that has resulted from the presence of three tectonic plates in the Horn of Africa. The Danakil Depression lies at the triple junction of three tectonic plates and has a complex geological history. It has developed as a result of Africa and Asia moving apart, causing rifting and volcanic activity. Erosion, inundation by the sea, the rising and falling of the ground have all played their part in the formation of this depression. Sedimentary rocks such as sandstone and limestone are unconformably overlain by basalt which resulted from extensive lava flows.
