Topographic profile

In the west of the Ethiopia, the land drops to the grasslands of Sudan while in the east, the country is dominated by the deserts of the Afar and the Red Sea. In contrast to the Abyssinian highlands, the altitude in the eastern part of the country is the lowest in Ethiopia and one of the lowest in Africa. It ranges from 116 meters below sea level to 1,500 meters above sea level. This area is home to one of the warmest inhabited location on Earth, called the Dallol region, which has an average temperature of 35 ̊C. In the south of Addis Ababa, we find the Great Rift Valley which runs from Mozambique to Syria and cuts Ethiopia in half. The major rivers in Ethiopia are the Blue Nile, Tekezze, Awash, Wabe Shabele, Omo and Baro. The main lakes include Abaya, Abiyata, Awasa, Chamo, Hayk, Langano, Shala, Tana and Ziway. With the exception of Lake Hayk and Lake Tana, all the lakes mentioned are located within the Great Rift Valley, south of Addis Ababa.
