Kawah Ratu - Mt. Tangkuban Perahu, West Java, Indonesia

Mt. Tangkuban Perahu is Bandung's most famous volcano just 28 km north of the city. This volcano has a distinctive shape, like an upside down boat (Tangkuban Perahu means, in fact, "up-turned boat"), it  has three craters into which areas tourists can walk through. These three craters are: Kawah Ratu, Kawah Domas and Kawah Upas.
Kawah Ratu, which means "Queen's Crater", is today just a big gray hole, which sometimes has a pool of water at its center. Poisonous gases sometimes accumulate in Kawah Ratu, thus making it somewhat of a risk to descend to the crater floor. Beyond the saddled shaped depression on the far side of Kawah Ratu is the still active Kawah Upas, the oldest crater on the mountain. On the very far western cliff we see a spot where all vegetation has been destroyed by constantly rising sulfurous vapors. On the crater walls, note the various layers of material consisting of rock, sand, and pebbles. Overtime, new craters have formed again and again in a rather consistent shift from west to east.

The endless expanse of the great salt plain Lake Assale located at 130 m below sea level in the northern Danakil depression near the Eritrean border. The surface crust forms hexagonal plates caused by evaporation and distribution of tension while the crust dries out. In this area, the salt deposit is several kilometers thick and tells about the tectonic force that rips Africa apart in this area, creating a deep trench, where sea water has invaded in the past and evaporated, leaving salt deposits behind.

The sun rises over the great salt lake in the northern Danakil desert, at 130 m below sea level, Africa's lowest point. The purple and orange sky is reflected in patches of water covering  hexagonal pieces of salt crust. The lake or salt plain consists of kilometer thick salt sediments that have accumulated over thousands of years in the lowest point of the Rift Valley. They are the result of intense evaporation when the area had been invaded by sea water from the Red Sea. The salt reaches about 4 km maximum thickness.
In the background, silhouettes of workers are seen cutting salt blocks out of the crust of the lake. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

The dried crust of the salt lake Assale in the northn Danakil depression in Ethiopia near the Eritrean boundary. The salt here is several kilometers thick and the result of larg-scale evaporation of sea water when the area now lying at 130 m below sea level had access to the Red Sea. The deep trench, or graben, where the lake is located was formed by giant tectonic forces ripping Africa apart along the Rift Valley. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

During the past, the Danakil has repeatedly been flooded by the Red Sea and each time, the water has evaporated, leaving a huge deposit of salt. In places, the salt is more than 5 km thick! The crust of the lake is broken into poligonal plates and salt is oozing out from the gaps.  (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
