The 3 day tour includes the Danakil Depression, Dallol, the salt mine, and Earta'le Volcano. Usually to visit this place it will take up to 4 days, but our tour will start in a different direction, and we make it one day less than the usual tour, which is the same tour as the 4 day tour. On in the 3rd day you will return back to Mekele late afternoon, there is also an option to fly back to Addis in the evening.
