If you visit Djibouti, definitely check this place out.

Lake Abbé, one of the strangest places on Earth, has an almost lunar landscape with a limestone chimney forest that looks like needles going up 50 meters, protuding from the ground.

The entire area is surrounded by bubbling hot springs.

The country only experiences 2 distinct seasons: the "damp, windy" season, between October and April, and the "burning wind" season between June and August, the hottest part of the year in which temperatures can get past 50 degrees celsius.
Rain is strange, because it doesnt really follow any specific season.
It can kind just come and go whenever it pleases throughout the year.

Lake Abbe, also known as Lake Abhe Bad, is a salt lake, lying on the Ethiopia-Djibouti border. It is one of a chain of six connected lakes, which also includes (from north to south) lakes Gargori, Laitali, Gummare, Bario and Afambo.

The Lake is found in the central area of the Afar Depression - a sunken landform forming as a result of the African plate splitting into the Nubian and Somalian plates. 
This depressions draws water from the African heartland via the Awash River to a chain of six connected lakes, with Lake Abbe representing the final destination for the river.

Although Lake Abbe is the ultimate destination for the Awash River, the dry environment absorbs the water, and the entire area is a vast terrain of salt flats.

The Afar people have established a settlement near the lakes shore. Lake Abbe itself is known for its limestone chimneys, which reach heights of 50 m and from which steam vents. Flamingos can also be found on the waters.
