We came here as part of a packaged tour. Lac Assal was one of the strangest places I have ever been to. The lake is so large that the end looks like it's part of the horizon and believe me, the lake is very very salty.
It's often sweltering hot and difficult to stay outside for very long so do bring sunscreen and water!
Try soaking your feet in this salty water, but bring water to rinse off, as the heat will dry the salt and dry you to your core .
Pick up some salt crystals as a souvenir! The crystals tend to group around foreign matter such as sticks and stones. You will also find cool bones from animals who may have died in the lac.
