7 Hottest Places In The World With Scorching Temperatures

If cold weather is not your thing—fear not! There are plenty of locations around the globe where you could escape the chilly nights, overcast skies, probably a terrible cold and being huddled up near the heater all day. A trip to any of the hottest places on Earth is sure to delight anyone seeking warm and sunlit days.

Here is a list of the hottest places in the world:

1. Death Valley, USA

Death Valley, Hottest Places In the World

With a temperature of a whopping 56.7 °C, Death Valley in the Mojave Desert in California has the distinction of being the hottest place in the world, quite literally. The warm conditions are due to the surrounding mountain ranges. But it is undoubtedly not as spooky as it sounds and Death Valley is home to the Death Valley National Park, Darwin Falls, and the vantage point Dante's View. With scenic attractions such as Zabriskie Point, Artist's Palette and Rhyolite Ghost Town, Death Valley is undoubtedly a premier destination for some offbeat travelling.  The valley has also served as a filming location for numerous movies of the 20th century.
Best Time to Visit: October to May


2. Al' Aziziyah, Libya

Al' Aziziyah was often called the hottest place in the world—the highest recorded temperature here was 58°C until it was declared invalid in 2012. While tourism is almost nonexistent in this location, one can still visit the nearby capital of Tripoli and the archaeological sites of Leptis Magna and Sabratha, which were under the Roman Empire.
Best Time To Visit: October to April


3. Timbuktu, Mali

Timbuktu, perhaps Mali's most well-known city, a UNESCO World Heritage site and another one of the hottest places in the world, is also one of the world's hottest cities, having recorded temperatures as high as 49 °C. Formerly an Islamic scholarly centre, the most visited attractions of Mali are the 14th-century Djinguereber Mosque and Sankore Madrasah. Shop at the lively Grand Market, or take a thrilling camel ride across the city.
Best Time To Visit: November to January


4. Tirat Zvi, Israel

Having recorded a temperature of 54 °C, Tirat Zvi, a kibbutz (Israeli community dependent on agriculture) is the hottest place in Asia, and one of the hottest spots in the world. As the largest grower of date palms in the country, tours of the date orchards are immensely popular at Tirat Zvi. Also, Tirat Zvi is relatively close to some of Israel' s popular sites—Mount Tabor is merely an hour away, and Jerusalem and Tel Aviv are two hours away.
Best Time To Visit: April to November

5. Dasht-e-Lut, Iran

Recently added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, Dasht-e-Lut is a desert in Iran. Surface temperatures have reached an enormous 70 °C here—no wonder the region is a serious contender for the hottest place in the world and is entirely uninhabitable! On the contrary, tourism in Dasht-e-Lut is somewhat active. Desert safaris in Dasht-e-Lut, organized by local tour operators, enable visitors to see stunning dunes, vast plateaus, salt plains and abandoned caravanserai (roadside inns), hike across the land and camp at night.
Best Time To Visit: November to April

6. Dallol, Ethiopia

Dallol, Hottest Places In the World

With a mean temperature of 34 °C, Dallol in Ethiopia is the record-holder for the highest annual average temperature for an inhabited place. A hub for salt (potash) mining in the 20th century, today the town, with a (un)enviable reputation of being one of the hottest places in the world,  mostly lies abandoned, save for the Afar people, an ethnic group. The fascinating landscape of Dallol comprises sulphur pools, several salt mines and salt mountains. Dallol is also near Erta Ale, the most active volcano in Ethiopia. These exciting sights, combined with the absence of hotels and a military escort joining tourists—make a trip to Dallol an adventure in the most real sense of the word.
Best Time To Visit: October to February


7. Flaming Mountains, China

Flaming Mountains, Hottest Places In The World

Flaming Mountains are red sandstone peaks in China with surface temperatures as high as 66 °C befitting the status of one of the hottest places in the world. The site frequently attracts locals as well as tourists for its literary significance—it was mentioned in the famous Chinese novel Journey To The West. Numerous distinctive attractions are located at Flaming Mountains, such as the ruins of Gaochang (a popular stopover point for merchants traversing the Silk Route), the spectacular Grape Valley-an area of cultivation for grapes since time immemorial, and the Bezeklik Caves.
Best Time To Visit: April to July

Are these temperatures high enough for you? Book your tickets, pack your bags and visit the hottest places in the world, where sweltering heat is always the norm!
