We live on a gorgeous planet with a lot of positive aspects and some extreme places with harsh conditions for living. But people are very adaptable and every nation that lives in an area with extreme conditions learned how to live there. Some of the hardest places to live are the ones with extreme temperatures, and the highest temperatures provide the most difficult conditions for humans. When the temperatures are very high, there is a small chance to find water and without it, any human dies in 3 days. Some nations had to be very creative and adaptable to survive in the top 10 hottest places on earth:
10. Sudan, Wadi Halfa
Africa has been known for its harsh conditions of living but in Sudan in summer is a temperature of 42 Celsius degrees. It is a very beautiful continent with an amazing flora and fauna but people can not live there in an easy way. The place where the mighty lion and the very beautiful giraffe grow it is very hot and people must make amazing efforts to live there. Sudan is not a very civilized country so we must think how hard it is for the locals to survive there.
9. Greece, Athens
In the capital of the territory full of legends with almighty gods and mythical creatures there are 48 Celsius degrees during the summer. Greece is an extremely beautiful country full of legends and places to see, but the temperature is high and it creates a big discomfort for the visitors. People who live there don`t have any problems because they are used to the conditions and their food and clothes are specially made to help them combat the heat. Even visitors can cool off very easy with a nice drink or a long bath in the sea.
8. Argentina, Salta Province
Argentina is the beautiful land of mountains where the temperature can be up to 48.9 Celsius degrees. Many beautiful dances, tasty foods and amazing drinks come from this hot country full of traditions and good looking women. Argentina is a beautiful and civilized country located in South America and it has an amazing relief with mountains and sea. In this country you can go from the big heights of Aconcagua to beautiful waters of Atlantic Ocean. A trip here will not be forgotten and you will be amazed how good can be when you take a bath while there are almost 48.9 Celsius degrees.
7. South Australia, Oodnadatta
Everybody knows Australia as the land of the long-legged kangaroo that can jump a few meters. In this land there are high temperatures that can reach 50.7 Celsius degrees. Many visitors who go out there to see the big variety of animals frequently complain about the heat. On a heat like that you must drink water constantly because you sweat a lot.
6. Israel, Tirat Zvi
Israel is a beautiful country but there are temperatures that value 53.9 Celsius degrees. On a heat like that the population must be able to find a lot of water because it is vital. This proves once again how adaptable is our kind and how good we are when it comes about surviving.
5. Tunisia, Kebili
Tunisia is a very hot place where only locals can survive with ease at temperatures of 55 Celsius degrees. Even though it is the smallest country located in Maghreb it has some of the highest temperatures in the world, and tourists sweat continuously because of their normal clothes. Locals wear only white and thin clothes that allow the air to travel and cool off their body.
4. USA, Death Valley
USA is known as the places where dreams come true and if you want to know how it feels when there are 56.6 Celsius degrees you should visit it and go to Death Valley. Death Valley is absolutely the hottest place in USA and it is also the lowest. This place lacks life and the only people that can be seen there are some tourists and National Park Service employees. In the north of the valley you can see some amazing dunes that will blow your mind and shelter a lot of animals that hide from the heat.
3. Libya, El Azizia
If you want to live in a place where temperature reaches 57.7 Celsius degrees you should move to Libya. Even though this country is under political reconstruction it still has a good economy and it has the 10th oil reserves in the world. Libya was ruled by the dictator Gaddafi who used to abuse the human rights and did not care about population. After a few time of struggling, protesting and war he was ousted and killed.
2. China, Turpan Depression
China is the country with the biggest population in the world. In China, there is the Turpan Depression which occupies the 2nd place as the lowest place on Earth and there where registered temperatures of 66 Celsius degrees. If you want to visit it, you have to make sure that you will have enough cooling methods with you otherwise you will dehydrate very fast.
1. Iran, Lut Desert
Lut Desert is the hottest place on this planet and there were registered temperatures of 70.5 Celsius degrees. This place is so hot, that milk can not spoil because bacteria can not grow in such hot conditions. Scientists have tested this theory by leaving sterilized containers of milk opened and it didn`t spoil.
Humans are on this place so long because of their capacity to adapt in any situation. Like Charles Darwin said “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, or the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
