Most Extreme Places on Earth
Here is a list
of the most extreme places on Earth! From the hottest to the coldest
place, from the highest to the lowest and many more!
Lut Desert (Iran): hottest place
on Earth at 159 °F (71 °C) Sa mạc Lut kũa Iran nóng dến 159 dộ F = 71 dộ C
Mt. Chimborazo (Ecuador): highest point above Earth's center at
20,703 feet (6,310 m) above sea level

Ecuadorians find pride in this interesting fact. Nonetheless,
Chimborazo cannot compare in difficulty, lack of oxygen, nor in fame, to
Mount Everest. (Link | Photo) Núi Everett thì dược xem là kao
nhất thế zới ..nhưng núi Chimborazo ỡ Ecuador
thì được koai là kao hơn vì nó nằm ngay ỡ trung tâm quã đất.
Tristan de Cunha (UK): most remote inhabited archipelago on Earth
at 2,000 miles from the nearest continent
Kái dão Cunha dược xem là nơi sinh sống lẽ loi nhất thế zới
vì nó kách xa 2,000 miles với lục địa gần nhất.
The most remote inhabited island group in the world, Tristan de Cunha in
the southern Atlantic Ocean, is so tiny its main island has no airstrip.
Home to 272 people sharing just 8 surnames, inhabitants suffer from
hereditary complaints like asthma and glaucoma. Annexed by the United
Kingdom in the 1800s, the island's inhabitants have a British postal code
and, while they can order things online, it takes a very long time for
their orders to arrive. But then, that's the trade off for having your
own island settlement some 2,000 miles from the nearest continent. (Link
Angels Falls (Venezuela): Earth's highest waterfall with 3230 feet (984
m) in height
Thác nước Angel (Thiên Thần) thuộc Venezuela được xem là

Oymyakon (Russia): coldest inhabited place on Earth at −96.2 °F (−71.2

The lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth was -129 °F in 1983, at the
Russian Base Vostok in Antarctica. Tiết dộ thấp nhất dược ghi
nhận trên quã đất là -129 F vào năm 1983 tại căn cứ Vostok cũa Nga ỡ Nam
The Dry Valleys (Antarctica): driest place on Earth Địa điễm khô khan nhất
trên quã đất là The Dry Valleys (Nam Kực)
Dã 2 triệu năm ni, khôn g có zọt nước mưa !!
One interior region of the Antarctic is known as The Dry Valleys. These
valleys have not seen rainfall in over two million years.
With the exception of one
valley, whose lakes are briefly filled with water by inland flowing
rivers during the summer, the Dry Valleys contain no moisture (water,
ice, or snow). The reasons why the Dry Valleys exist are the 200 mph
Katabatic down winds which evaporate all moisture. The dry valleys are
strange: except for a few steep rocks they are the only continental part
of Antarctica devoid of ice. Located in the Trans-Antarctic Range, they
correspond to a mountain area where evaporation (or rather, sublimation)
is more important than snowfall, thus all the ice disappears, leaving dry
Another driest place is the Atacama Desert in Chile, some parts of which
have received absolutely zero precipitation in centuries. Parts of the
Atacama Desert may actually exceed the dryness of most of Antarctica,
though data from the latter is insufficient to tell.
Marianas Trench (Indonesia and Japan): lowest point on Earth at 35,840
feet (10,924 m) below sea level Marianas Trench ỡ zữa Nam

the deepest point in Earth's oceans. The bottom there is 10,924
meters (35,840 feet) below sea level. If Mount Everest, the highest
mountain on Earth, were placed at this location it would be covered by
over one mile of water. The only people to have ever explored this trench
were Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh. At the bottom they were seven miles
down and all around them eight tons of pressure. They observed fish,
shrimp and other creatures living on the bottom of the sea floor. (Link |

Cherrapunji (India): wettest place on Earth Chỗ ẫm ướt nhất trên quã
dất là: Cherrapunji ..cũa Ấn Dộ
Cherrapunji, North-Eastern India is thought for many years to be the
wettest place in the world. Here 10,820mm rain falls on average in a
year. Unlike Colombia where the rain falls throughout the whole year,
Cherrapunji gets most of its rain during the 'south-west monsoon', or wet
season, between June and August. Cherrapunji does hold the record for the
wettest month on record, recording 9,296mm in July 1861. Actually,
between 1860 and 1862 Cherrapunji was incredibly wet; between August 1st
1860 and July 31st 1861 (which overlaps parts of 2 wet seasons) 26,467mm
rain fell. In the calendar year 1861 22,987mm rain fell, of which 22,454
fell between April and September.
Mount Thor (Canada): Earth's greatest vertical drop Núi Thor kũa Canada kó
vách zựng đứng nhất cũa quã dất
Mount Thor, in Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada,
presents a 4,100 foot pure vertical drop. Mt. Thor is Canada's most
famous peak, and it's made of pure granite. It's a favorite of thrill
seekers and climbers. Mount Thor was first climbed in 1953 by an Arctic
Institute of North America team. There have been a few recent rappel
expeditions, with one fatality in 2006. (Link)
Dead Sea (Jordan): Earth's lowest elevation at 1,385 ft (422 mt)
below sea level Biễn Chết (Dead Sea) kũa
Jordan là diễm thấp nhất kũa quã dất:
1,385 ft = 422 mét zưới mặt bễ.
The Dead Sea is the lowest elevation on Earth's surface on dry land, its
surface and shores are 422 meters (1,385 ft) below sea level. On the
border of Jordan and Israel, the road around the Dead Sea also happens to
be the lowest road on Earth.
Famous for its salinity
(over ten times that of the Mediterranean Sea), the Dead Sea is said to
be home of the first health retreat. Because of the extreme salt content,
no life can survive in the sea, hence the name.
