These beautiful places are, ironically, some of the most dangerous on the planet. While the adventurous ones might find them perfect for an adrenaline filled expedition, those with a milder disposition will do good to give them a wide detour. Here are the top places on the planet that are way more precarious than your average vacation spot.
Danakil Depression, Ethiopia
Until the discovery of interplanetary spaceflight, this is probably the closest we will get to an alien landscape.
The Danakil Depression is strangely beautiful as it is brutally inhospitable; the region is riddled with active volcanoes, smouldering sulphur-caked hot springs and sprawling salt basins.
How to reach :- Danakil is located in Northern Ethiopia, close to the Eritrea border. The closest airport is Mekele International Airport which has daily flights to/from Aksum, Addis Ababa and Lalibela. From Mekele, you will have to contact a local tour operator to arrange for the 4x4s needed for the trip.
