Lake Assale is the most interesting and unusual thing in Northern Ethiopia! If you want to have good memories about this place, do not go with ETT, they do not care about the tourists. Any other travel agency will be better: World sun, Lucy, Magma Flow. Enjoy the beauty with those, who care about the people and not about the money!

We spent the end of the afternoon in Lake Assal, and the atmosphere was totally magic, out of time.
The trip to the Danakil depression is quite expensive, however it's uniqueness makes it definitely worth it.
I can recommend the Mek'ele-based agency Lucy Ethiopia. We did the 2-day trip to the Danakil Depression incl. Lake Assal and Dalol (I had read some deceiving reviews about Erta Ale, but check again as the volcano's activity may change again) and it contained various amazing highlights.

We visited this as part of our Danikil Tour. It's beautiful and striking, and otherworldly. I recommend going.

did it trough E.T.T tours which were great, part of the overall Danakil trip. Sat down on the salt for 2 hours drinking local wine and listening to music. Reminds the Salar in Bolivia. Really great experience and recommended as part of the dallol and the volcano trip.

This is a great place to watch the sunset, although there are many people gathered here as it is quite close to the campsites at the end of the Chinese road.

We went to Lake Assale after we visited Dallol and it was amazing. There is a salt mining. The miners work really hard under difficult circumstances. The lake itself was superb. I loved it! Don't forget your sunglasses.

One of the most espetacular places in the world. Very impressive landscape. October and November was good to visit because not so hot temperature (about 35°C) and possible to feel wind.

Magical salt flats and salt lake, and great for a sunset. And then there is the salt mining and salt caravans. Great place to visit - a true adventure

We went there during our tour to Danakil, an amazing salt lake and salt desert with a great opportunity for taking pictures in sunset
