Pleasant village at the edge of the Rift Valley Escarpment of the Danakil Depression.
Berhale is a village at the edge of the Danakil Depression, kind of half-way climbing up the Rift Valley Escarpment. One passes here on the way to or from Hamad Ele and the Dallol sulphur springs. The village is also a stop-over for the camel caravans that bring salt from Lake Asale to the markets of Mekele, high on the plateau outside the Danakil Depression. There is no reason to stay in Berhale, especially with improvements to the road into the Danakil, but it is a pleasant-enough place for a brief stop, and for a stroll around.
