These Are The Hottest Places On Earth Where Temperature Crosses 50 Degrees Celsius


This month, India’s weather agency has issued a severe heatwave warning as millions of people grapple with the country’s warmest months in years. Many locations in India had the hottest temperatures in history in May 2022.

People becoming ill and even dying as a result of the severe temperatures are making headlines. This makes us think about how hot it is in other places of the planet.

There are several sites on the planet where the temperature is extremely high, including one of the world’s hottest spots. We examine some of the world’s hottest locations, including those where temperatures have above 50 degrees Celsius and even those where temperatures have beyond 70 degrees Celsius.
