Afar Triangle, Africa
The Afar Depression is situated on the borders of Eritrea, Djibouti and Ethiopia and is quite a dangerous place not only because of the extreme temperatures, but also because of the Erta Ale volcano. Small earthquakes shake the region often and cause underground cracks and chasms. The earthquakes are caused by the two lakes in the volcano’s crater, which flow with lava.
