What is the creepiest and most terrifying place in the world?
One of the creepier places, but also oddly charming, is Lake Natron in Tanzania.
Water flows into Lake Natron, but can only escape by evaporation. As a result, the water is very high in precipitates. Unlike other salt lakes, like the Dead Sea and the Great Salt Lake in Utah, Lake Natron is highly alkaline due to high levels ofand , with a pH value of upto 12 - similar to ammonia. The water temperature can reach 60 deg C (140 deg F).
Now, bear in mind that sodium carbonate and hot water are used to strip flesh from bones in taxidermy, and you’ll understand that Lake Natron is pretty inimical to life.. And the rest?
