145 Comments · Topography

The lower rift valley is generally of low altitude, (300-700 metres) being mainly large plains and low table land.

In Dalol-Asale district, the land falls to about 110 metres below sea level. Active volcanoes are numerous here. Some lakes in the hot Danakil depression have dried up and become salt flats.
