Did Dallol get abandoned because of the heat or the remoteness?
According to this: 10 Places You Don it's not only unearthly hot and extremely remote, but volcano-prone, with hostile natives nearby. Presumably though that didn't bother them before, don't quite know why it does now. Looking at this though it doesn't look very inviting!

Are those the real stats for the place?

I remember when I first read the fact that Dallol was the hottest inhabited place, I kept trying to look for info on its stats but couldn't seem to find a reliable source (online or in books).

I like heat and summer, but that's probably unsurvivable.

F

I'd love to see a weather station placed there. I reckon it would cream Death Valley.
