Salt Miners Work In Searing Heat In The Danakil Depression

Camels are used to transport salt blocks mined by hand in the Danakil Depression on January 22, 2017 in Dallol, Ethiopia. The depression lies 100 metres below sea level and is one of the hottest and most inhospitable places on Earth. Despite the gruelling conditions, Ethiopians continue a centuries old industry of mining salt from the ground by hand in temperatures that average 34.5 degrees centigrade but have risen to over 50 degrees.
