Lake Afrera, or Egogi Bad for the Afars and also known as Lake Giulietti after the Italian Explorer killed by the Afars in 1881, is 16 km long and 6 km wide. It lies at 140 meters below sea level and it is extremely salty. In the globe's hottest region, it is still extant due to the constant supply of fresh waters from the thermal springs coming from the still partially active volcanic chain of the Ertale.The first six pictures in this section (0003 to 0008 by Rino, Cinelux Asmara) are a panoramic sequence showing the lake's southern part.
