Called the dark Continent, Africa is a massive land mass of land still unexplored and untamed. Diverse in its people, religions, languages and heritage, it should come as no surprise that Africa is home to some of the most mysterious landmarks, geological formations and man-made places on earth. Whether in the deserts of Egypt, the dense jungles of the Congo or the beautiful coasts of West Africa, this continent is home to some of the most breathtaking landscapes and interesting places on earth.
From pictures, one might guess these landscapes are from the mind of a science-fiction writer or computer generated for a futuristic movie. However, this is actually a place on earth. A place in Ethiopia to be more specific. The city of Dallol was established in this area of volcanic activity and holds the record as being the hottest inhabited place on earth with an average temperature 96 degrees. The city is also one of the most remote in the world and can take a journey of a day or more just to reach it.
