Vulcan Dallol — the lowest land volcano on a planet, its muzzle is located on a mark of 45 meters below sea-level in the remote area in the northeast of Ethiopia

Dallol Volcano in Ethiopia “Its summit lies at -48m below the sea level. Dallol holds the record for the hottest annual average temperature in the world with 34° C, recorded in 1960 and 1966.”

The Ethiopian city of Axum has a series of 7 giant obelisks that date from perhaps 300 BC to 300 AD. They have details carved into them that represent windows and doorways of several storeys. The largest obelisk, now fallen, is in fact “the largest monolith ever made anywhere in the world”. It is 108 feet long, weighs a staggering 500 tons, and represents a thirteen-storey building.
