5 Warmest Places on Earth

Dallol, Ethiopia

Dallol-Ethiopia The average annual temperature in Dallol as recorded from 1960-1966 is 94 degrees Fahrenheit. With 94 degrees Fahrenheit being an average, that means that temperatures seldom drop significantly below 94 degree. Temperatures can reach as high as 145 degrees Fahrenheit with the help of the sun… oh and not to mention the active volcano within this valley.

Death Valley, United States

death-valley Death Valley holds the highest temperature ever directly recorded, 134 degrees Fahrenheit. Death Valley is surrounded by mountains on all sides which causes hot, dry air masses to become trapped in the valley. The average temperatures over the summer exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ten Geographic Facts to Know About Death Valley

Timbuktu, Mali

timbuktu Timbuktu is classified as a tropical thorn woodland biome, which means it has a tropical wet & dry savannah climate. Timbuktu has no cold season and its average max temperature is recorded at 99 degrees Fahrenheit.

Australia’s Badlands

australia_hottest In 2002 a NASA satellite detected a land temperature of 156.7 degrees Fahrenheit. So few people live on this region of Australia, so there are not accurate temperature reading readily available.

Kebili, Tunisia

tataouine 01 Located in Africa, Kebili has reached temperatures as high as 131 degrees Fahrenheit. Ironically, one of the hottest places on earth is actually one of the places where African’s go to find relief from the heat. Palm trees and water holes provide a place for tourists to escape and cool off.

While I am a fan of warm temperatures, I don’t think I would be able to stay more than three days at places like these. Normally when I think of warm places I think of places like Mexico and the Bahamas, places with beautiful beaches. This blog post reminded me that desserts and valleys do exist and they can reach unbearable temperatures.
