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)

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.

Recently, donkeys are increasingly replacing the traditional camels in the salt trade of the Danakil. A donkey caravan travels over the salt lake to soon reach the working area where they will be loaded with salt blocks and later return, taking on the long journey back into the highlands, where the salt will be sold.

Since early dawn, Afar and Tigrian workers have been present at the current working site on the salt lake. They break the hard crust, then shape pieces into neatly cut salt blocks. This hard work has been unchanged since Biblical times.  (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

Camels waking back from Lake Assale, loaded with salt. A brief rest waits in Ahmed Ela, but then the arduous journey continues into the highlands. It will take several days before the salt reaches its destination at markets in the towns high above the desert. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
