Ethiopia's nature plays a special role within Africa. Ethiopia is the highest country on the continent, along with Lesotho. 50 percent of the territory is higher than 1200 meters above sea level, more than 25 percent above 1800 meters above sea level. Around five percent even reaches a height of more than 3500 m.a.s.l. The highest mountain in the country is the Ras Dashen (Ras Dejen) at 4600 m above sea level. The Danakil Desert in the north-east of the country, with its numerous active volcanoes, is one of the hottest places in the world.
