The Hottest Point on Earth

Lut-desert

In the Lut Desert, just 80 Km north of the city of Shahdad, there is a hill made up volcanic lava with a total area of 480 square km which is known as ” Gandom-e-Beryan” and also “Rig-e-Sokhteh (burned sand)”, which is the hottest point on earth with a temperature of 67 degrees centigrade in the shade. The environmental conditions are so harsh that not only prevent the survival of all forms of fauna and flora, but even the bacteria cannot remain alive. As a result, dead bodies are not decomposed, but are dried under intense heat of the sun.
