The number of caravans, the number of camels in each caravan, and the names of available salt cutters have all been recorded and matched to each other through a ticket system, supervised by the Shumbahari (the Chief of the Lake). Each caravan is thus assigned a group of 3 salt cutters, which ensures that the size of a single caravan is ideally 10-20 camels.
If there are less camels than workers, or vice versa, some of the workers (or camel caravans) will have to wait another day, but earn priority on the next day. (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)
