Day 2: LAC ASSAL – VOLCANO

Today we head out to visit Lac Assal, an aquatic wilderness of locked seawater and high density of salt that was once part of a major geographic upheaval. The volcanic activities have transformed Djibouti and its region into desolate spectacles and unusual landscapes with temperature can reach up to 60 degrees Celsius. The closer you get to the lake the hotter it gets. There are several thermal sources that reach 80 degrees Celsius! The brightness is so intense that you’d think that you are at a ski resort on a sunny day, of course minus the cold. Strong sunglasses is a must have item. Next stop will be Goubet Beach for picnic lunch break before we continue to view the volcano before returning back to the hotel.
