Ert Ale Active Volcano


Ranks as one of the most alluring and physical challenging natural attraction in Ethiopia. Ert-Ale rises from below sea level to an altitude of 613m located in the similarly named range in the hostile Danakil depression in northeast Ethiopia. Ert-Ale is a basaltic shield volcano known for persistent lava lake activity since early in the 20th century. It is a shield volcano which becomes more regular, with film teams and adventure travelers visiting the area in recent years.

The best time of the year for organizing Adventure Tours to Dallol and Ert-Ale runs from November to March.
