Mahshahr has a population of about 1,63,000, but no one wants to live here. This is a labor city, due to which no one needs to live here permanently. The people living here tell that in summer it seems that the sun has been left over the Mahshahr itself.
9. Ghadames, Libya
Ghadames is an Oases city located in the southwest part of the country of Libya. Oases are generally called such places which are surrounded by greenery even though they are present in the middle of a desert. In addition to being an oasis town, Ghadames has also been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of the old mud houses built here, which hold an important place in the history of Libya.
The population of Ghadames is about 10 thousand, most of whom live in thick-walled houses made of mud to avoid the deadly heat there. In summer, the temperature here reaches about 131 Fahrenheit, while to date the highest temperature recorded here is 55 degrees.

5. Dasht-e Loot, Iran
I told you that Iran is present on this list with many candidates, so let’s go back to Iran. The surface temperature of this Loot Desert of Iran is the hottest ground temperature on this planet. Between 2003 and 2009, the maximum temperature was found to be 70.7 degrees from the measurements made by the American Space Agency NASA through satellite. Now with such a high temperature, it is clear that no human being or even animals and plants can survive here.
Death hides in this desert of Dasht-e Loot. If a person reaches here by mistake, then only God will have to come to the ground to save him, otherwise, his death is certain.
4. Wadi Halfa, Iran
Iran is also present in our top fourth location. The Iranian city of Wadi Halfa is located in Sudan on the shores of Lake Nubia. It does not rain here at all throughout the year. Wadi Halfa turns into a burning furnace, especially in the hot months i.e. between May and September. June is the hottest month here, where the average temperature is 41 degrees.
Wadi Halfa considered to be the hottest city in the world, has the highest ever recorded temperature of 53 degrees Celsius, which happened in April of 1967. Due to such high temperatures, the land of Wadi Halfa city has not only become barren but also seems to be melting. In such a situation, life must have been so difficult and full of struggles for the people living here.
3. Dallol, Ethiopia
One of the hottest places in the world is also the city of Dallol in Ethiopia. It is known for its hydrothermal fields containing salt, acidic hot springs, and gas formations. Not only this, the reason for the high temperature of Dallol is the active volcanoes present there. Between 1960 and 1966, the average temperature here is 41 degrees.
Dallol is the most hottest place in the World for people living on Earth. Although the temperature is different everywhere in winter and the temperature in summer is different, Dallol is such a place where there is no avoidance of any kind of weather and the temperature here remains above 45 degrees. Due to such high temperatures, the water of the rivers and ponds present here keeps on boiling all the time.
2. Aziziyah, Libya
Aziziyah was previously the capital of Jafra Province, which is located 25 miles (41 km) southwest of Tripoli. Aziziyah was once the hottest place on earth. When in the year 1922, the highest temperature recorded here was 58 degrees. However, it was later considered a false claim and due to a lack of proper information, it was removed from the top place of the hottest place in the year 2012.
In today’s time, few cities in the world are hotter and drier than Aziziyah in Libya. During the summer, the temperature of the place still remains above 48 degrees Celsius.
1. Death Valley, California
Death Valley has been ranked number one on our list. Death is in its name. Death Valley in the US province of California was the highest temperature in the world recorded. Friends, although it is always hot here, in the year 1913, the highest temperature of Death Valley was recorded at 56.7 degrees, in which it is impossible for any human to survive. This is really the valley of death.
The circumstances are even such that here you will find ghost towns from place to place, where there are only houses, but there is no one to live in. In this Death Valley of America, the rain is almost negligible, due to which a drop of water cannot be found even after searching far and wide.
Even today, the average temperature remains 47 degrees during the summer in Death Valley and it is also the driest place in the whole of America. Now such a dangerous place where no one will be able to survive. So it would not be wrong at all to say the place Death Valley
