Hottest place in the world
This trip was sponsored by Key2Persia, with whom I worked in order to promote unusual places in southern and eastern Iran. However, the opinions in this article are completely honest and personal.
While trying to climb and walk among those huge sand dunes, I felt as if the sun was penetrating my brain, forcing me to put on one of those local hats made of straw, one of the few materials that can be produced in this dry region.
With a tremendous effort, finally, I managed to reach the top of the sandy hill, although honestly, it only served to make me feel even more insignificant, as dozens of gigantic mud sculptures towered and towered above me, as far as my eyes could glimpse.
The Lut desert is no ordinary desert and here, a NASA satellite captured the highest temperature ever recorded on the surface of the earth, being 71ºC, no joke. The Lut Desert is the hottest place in the world.

The record for the highest temperature in Death Valley was recorded in 1913, when it reached 134 degrees Fahrenheit, about 57 degrees Celsius. In addition, one of the great mysteries of science is in this place, where the rocks move by themselves. Why does this phenomenon occur?

Until now, Death Valley in southeastern California held the historical record for the highest temperature on the planet. In July 1913, the thermometer read 56.7ºC in this region. However, new and more accurate measurements show that the temperatures experienced in northern Mexico and southern USA, in the Sonoran Desert, actually correspond to the hottest place on Earth.
According to Richard Stone, correspondent for Science, more than 11,000 World Meteorological Organization stations measure air temperature in the shade. The records that had been kept so far were of the areas where this technology was available, leaving aside those ecosystems where they were not installed.
Due to the lack of these specialized instruments, this type of measurements had not been taken in Mexico. Recently, however, temperatures of 80.8ºC were recorded, making the Sonoran Desert the warmest place on the planet. Amazed by the record -which usually corresponds to places out of this world-, scientists set a new world record.
Many people however associate very hot weather with lifeless desert. However, not all deserted regions of our planet can claim the name of the hottest regions. It is very interesting that among them there are many cities where people have been living for many centuries, and some regions with high temperature regime nowadays present curiosities of world importance and are very popular among tourists. It is very difficult to determine exactly the warmest place on the planet, since the large-scale research in this region has only recently begun. Many important discoveries in the field of climate anomalies were made precisely thanks to modern technology. Those who are not afraid of stormy weather are obliged to visit one of the hottest spots on the planet, each of which has its own unique peculiarities.
According to the latest research data, the hottest spot on the planet is located in the territory of the Middle East. It is the sandy and salty desert Lut, where recently satellites set a new temperature record of 70.72 degrees Celsius. Scientists quickly found a logical explanation for this climatic phenomenon, one of the main peculiarities of the Lut desert is its dark landscape. During the day the sun’s rays are actively consumed, therefore the temperature record of that region is more the rule rather than the exception.
