    Where is the hottest place on Earth?

    Baku, July 14, AZERTAJ

    On July 10, 1913, the world temperature maximum was recorded in Death Valley in California – 56.66 degrees Celsius. However, the heat champion soon had a competitor – on September 13, 1922, a weather station in Libya recorded a temperature of 58 degrees Celsius. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) recognized the Libyan figure as a record.

    According to AZERTAC with reference to, the temperature record in the city of El Aziziya in northwestern Libya was revised in 2010-2012 by the WMO Climatological Commission. The members of the commission were embarrassed by five details – dubious tools; inexperienced observer; uncharacteristic for the desert place of observation; discrepancy between the temperature maximum and the temperature of neighboring locations; discrepancy between the temperature maximum and subsequent temperature indicators recorded at this place.

    As a result, the commission decided that those who observed the temperature record in El Azizia were mistaken by 7 degrees. The laurels of the hottest on earth have returned to Death Valley again.

    Last month was the hottest June in the history of the national park – the average temperature was 38.8 degrees Celsius. For comparison: the average temperature for 105 years is 35.2 degrees Celsius.

    Death Valley reaches a daily temperature of 32. 2 degrees Celsius on average 190 days a year, 37.7 degrees – 140 days a year, 43.3 degrees – 89days a year, above 48.8 degrees – 18 days a year, and 51.6 degrees – 3 days a year.

    Why is it so hot in Death Valley? The depression is below sea level, and the Sierra Nevada mountain range blocks moisture from the Pacific Ocean. Air in a narrow valley cannot circulate. There is very little vegetation in the valley that could absorb solar energy or provide evapotranspiration cooling, and there is desert nearby.

    The hottest places on Earth are now on the map. Top 10 where people live


    The temperate climate allows residents of mid-latitudes to enjoy winter snow and summer beach holidays. Temperatures above 30 ° C are real heat, and on such days you do not want to leave the house. But there are hot places on Earth where +35 ° C for the local population is the most pleasant coolness.

    People are used to living here permanently, unlike tourists. And visitors should pay special attention to the climate in these natural sites in order to protect themselves from the destructive heat.

    Rating of the hottest places on the planet: location, description

    Until recently, it was believed that 57.8 ° C is a record high temperature. The indicators of 1922 were noted in the African city of El Azizia, in Libya. The fact is controversial, many meteorologists consider it invalid.

    On planet Earth, according to scientists, this is not the hottest place at all. Peaks of plus values ​​fall on remote corners in which there is no measuring equipment, these are the territories of the deserts of the Sahara, Gobi and Sonora.

    Ethiopian Dallol

    A unique place in the north of Ethiopia, in the area of ​​the Danakil natural depression. The average annual temperature here is +34.4 °C. For months it does not fall below +38 ° C, and there is practically no difference between winter and summer. Even 50 years ago people lived here and mined ore. Today, only rare tourists come here.

    The hottest places on Earth should start with the Ethiopian Dallol.

    Dallol is the name of an area, an abandoned village and a volcano in the Afar Basin.

    The landscape of the valley, located 130 m below sea level, is unusual. It is distinguished by arrays of multi-colored influxes of bizarre shapes, craters of mud volcanoes, sulfur fumaroles and travertines. The heat is not the most terrifying, but it is constant all year round. It is supported by two sources: the Sun and an active volcano, surrounded by numerous thermal springs.


    The hottest places on Earth in Europe – Greece, the capital of Athens, the center of the birth of world civilization. 42 m above sea level. 07/10/1977, the air temperature rose to +48 °C. A little later than neighboring Spain and Portugal, the thermometers rose to +50 ° C, but these figures were not taken into account due to doubts about the accuracy of the measuring instruments.

    The climate is subtropical semi-desert. The average daily temperature in summer is +28-30°C, in winter +10-12°C. Precipitation is about 398 mm. The heat is softened by the moist breezes of the Aegean Sea. More than 3 million people live in Athens permanently, not counting tourists and visiting workers. From 14:00 to 18:00 – rest period.

    A sign of tactlessness to call at this time, make noise, make appointments. Almost every Sunday, the city hosts some kind of fun holiday or festival, which attracts crowds of tourists and Athenians.

    Villa de Maria

    Argentine city in the province of Cordoba is the hottest in South America. The climate is subtropical oceanic. 02.01. In 1920, the thermometer crossed the mark of +49.1 ° C in the shade. In January, summer is here with an average value of +32 °C, winter falls on June +18.8 °C. The population is small, only about 5,000 people.


    The hottest places on Earth in Australia are located in its southern part, at an altitude of 112 m above sea level, on the outskirts of the Simpson Desert. The absolute temperature record was recorded in January 1960 and amounted to + 50.7 °C. Aborigines say that such a jump in temperature destroyed all bed bugs.

    Still, people do not feel comfortable living here, so the population of the town does not exceed 300 people. Desert climate. The hottest month is January with a maximum of +34 °C and a minimum of +24 °C. The average annual temperature in Odnadatta is +21.7 °C.


    This African city is located on the southern edge of the Sahara, one of the largest and hottest deserts in the world. The climate is sharply continental. It was here that the temperature maximum was +54.5 degrees Celsius. The city is located in the Republic of Mali, at the bend of the Niger River, and the state itself has no access to the sea.

    Timbuktu is one of the most densely populated African cities.

    The hottest places on Earth are in the Sahara Desert. It is also one of the most dangerous, but actively visited by tourists from all over the world place. The natives have learned to cope with the ever-present heat. But travelers should take care of themselves thoroughly.


    This is a very beautiful and at the same time very hot city, located at the crossroads of caravan routes in Tunisia (Africa). Hellish temperatures, reaching +55 °C during the day and falling below zero at night, do not frighten its inhabitants. Kebili was inhabited already 200 thousand years ago, and until the 30s of the twentieth century, a slave market remained here.

    Numerous green oases, where you can cool off with water and relax in the shade, are located throughout the city. And for those who work in the hottest midday time, a siesta is obligatory. For the inhabitants of this region, such a climate is the norm, they are accustomed to temperatures at which it would be difficult for an ordinary inhabitant of the middle latitudes not only to function, but simply to survive.

    Death Valley

    One of California’s most visited tourist destinations. There is a national park here and it is the lowest point in North America. For a long time it was considered the hottest place on Earth. On July 10, 1913, the temperature of +56.7 °C became the official recorded mark.

    Death Valley is located in the Mojave Desert 86 m below sea level. Dry summer. July averages +38 °C, average high 46 °C. Winter with rare precipitation and an average January temperature of +12 °C. There are years when not even a drop of precipitation falls on the desert land.


    This Libyan desert has long been listed as one of the hottest places on earth, along with the Mojave in the US. In 1922, a record temperature of 57.8 °C was recorded here. The researchers dispute this result, and suggest a margin of error of 7 degrees. Nearly 100 years ago, measuring instruments were not as accurate as they are today.

    Al Aziziya is a really hot place. The average annual temperature is +50 °C. No wonder this city is not a popular place to live. There are only about 4,000 inhabitants here, and the population is constantly falling. It’s all about the unbearable temperature and the constantly scorching sun.

    Fire Mountains

    The hottest places on Earth in Asia are located in China, in the Taklamakan desert, at an altitude of 832 m above sea level. The mountain range is one of the spurs of the Tien Shan and is a chain of deserted hills destroyed by erosion, devoid of any vegetation. The red color of the sandstone is evidence of violent volcanic activity. From a distance, the mountains resemble huge flames.

    Along the foot of the Great Silk Road in ancient times.

    The temperature record in 2008 was 66.8 °C. The average air temperature is 49 °C, and the soil surface warms up to 82 °C. No wonder the Fiery Mountains are shrouded in numerous myths and legends and are a symbolic place.

    Deshte Lut

    Iran is number 1 on our list. Such an incredible result was recorded by a NASA satellite several years ago through a remote probe. The Deshte Lut Desert is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

    Top 10 hottest places on Earth where people live: features of life, climate

    Of course, many can imagine the high temperature, have been in a sauna or on vacation in a hot country. But to live in such conditions all the time is simply unbearable. However, this does not prevent brave natives from settling in such areas, and tourists from actively visiting them. Our ranking of the 10 hottest places on Earth with temperature peaks is opened by Iran.

    Hottest places:

    1. Ahvaz, Iran: +47 °С. Iran is one of the hottest places on earth. The harsh climate, the scorching sun, which almost never sets behind the clouds and occasional rain.

From 12.00 to 18.00 the city practically dies out. It is difficult to find shops, restaurants or offices during these hours. Iranians have a siesta at this time, which they take very seriously. The city wakes up at sunset. Then Ahvaz literally comes to life.

The largest financial and economic center not only of the United Arab Emirates, but of the entire Middle East. 30°C January “coolness” is replaced here by 48°C summer heat. The development of the city is largely facilitated by numerous free economic activity zones, offshore zones, the absence of certain types of taxes, logistics (2 major international airports and 2 seaports, several bus stations, metro, monorail), as well as tourism.
    3. Catenanuova, Sicily: +48.5 °C . A commune in Italy with about 5,000 members. The climate is Mediterranean, with mild, warm, short winters and long, dry, hot summers. The average daily temperature in summer is +26 °С, in winter +10-14 °С.
