At a glance Dallol looks like a lake with beautiful green water. The surrounding scenery is very impressive, with stones like coral colored bright yellow and orange. Reported curiosity, bright green and yellow lights in the pools of acid was caused by sulfur, iron, and high mineral.
However it turns out Dallol is not quite popular tourist destination. The visitors of this beautiful crater may only amount to a few hundred each year. Dallol is one of the most remote places on earth. Very few people who live around in this place, so Dallol was dubbed the ghost town.
Dallol is touted as one of the hottest places on earth. Temperatures there can reach 94 degrees Fahrenheit. High temperature along with the toxic of gas that are ready to gush at any time from one of the geysers make Dallol a stunning place that also endanger lives.
