Where are the hottest and coldest places on earth?

California’s Death Valley holds the record for the highest reliably reported air temperature in the world, 56.7°C in July, 1913. In midsummer the desert region averages around 47°C and is the driest place in the US. Hardly the environment you would expect to find hiking trails, resorts, and a bewilderingly green golf course.

Ringed by mountains, Death Valley plunges to 86 metres below sea level, which helps explain the heat. It’s around a three-hour drive from Las Vegas.
