Just as we have really cold places on earth we also have hot places. There are really harsh or extreme places in the world and the weather is really so unfriendly. I will be making a list of the 10 hottest places in the world. these freezing places make habitation difficult. imagine living in a place and you are made to endure the extreme weather like a frozen chicken.

You may be wondering how cold the coldest place in the world is, you will get an answer in this article. The coldest temperature ever recorded was minus 128.6 degrees F at the Russian research station in Vostok, Antarctica, on July 21, 1983.

Here are the top 10 coldest place in the world

1. Vostok, Antarctica

Antarctica is one of the coldest places on Earth, Vostok station precisely has the lowest temperature on earth. Vostok Station is a Russian Antarctic research station at the southern Pole and at the centre of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. The coldest month in Vostok is August where the lowest reliably measured natural temperature on Earth is −89.2 °C (−128.6 °F). It is the coldest place in the world right now.

One fascinating thing about Vostok, it is one of the sunniest places on Earth compared to the sunniest places of South Africa, there are more hours of sunshine per year despite having no sunshine at all from May to August. The station has the highest sunshine in December, 22.9 hours daily. In contrast, it has the lowest sunshine, with a maximum of 0 hours of sunshine per month during polar night. So imagine what it means to be in a place with 0 hours of sunshine per month.

Yakutsk, he capital city of the Sakha Republic, Russia is the coldest city in the world with an average winter temperature −34 °C (−30 °F).

What is the coldest country in the world? Russia (Oymyakon) – with the −128.6 °F, the lowest recorded temperature for any permanently inhabited location.

2. Plateau Station, Antarctica

Plateau Station is the second coldest place on earth with inactive American research and Queen Maud Land traverse support base on the central Antarctic Plateau. The coldest month being July, the lowest naturally recorded temperature was -123.1 on the Fahrenheit scale.

The Station has an ice cap climate. it is one of the coldest places on earth. The lowest temperature recorded there on July 20, 1968, was -123.1 °F (-86.2 °C). In addition, it has cold and brief summers, and long, dark and frigid winters. quick one can you live in a country as cold as this? do you to try this adventure?

3. Oymyakon, Russia

Oymyakon is known as the coldest place in the world. It is also known as one of the candidates for the Northern Pole, the other being the Verkhoyansk. The ground there is permanently frozen. In 1924, Russian scientist Sergey Obrychev registered the lowest temperature −71.2 °C (−96.2 °F) recorded at Oymyakon’s weather station. This is the lowest recorded temperature for any permanently inhabited location on Earth. Only Antarctica has recorded lower official temperatures (−128.6 °F), recorded at Vostok Station on 21 July 1983.

Oymyakon and Verkhoyansk are the only two permanently inhabited places in the world that have recorded temperatures below −60.0 °C (−76 °F) for every day in January. Sometimes the average minimum temperature in Oymyakon remains below −50 °C (−58 °F), for December, January, and February. Also, sometimes summer can also be quite cold, but June and July are the only months.

4. Verkhoyansk, Russia

Verkhoyansk is second coldest place in Russia. This town in Sakha Republic, Russia is known for its exceptionally low winter temperatures and some of the greatest temperature differences between summer and winter on Earth. Verkhoyansk is one of the places considered the northern Pole of Cold. The lowest temperature recorded there, in February 1892, was −69.8 °C (−93.6 °F).

It has a population of over 1,311, the town is home to the Pole of Cold Museum. It also has an airport, a river port, a fur-collecting depot, and the center of a reindeer-raising area. Only Antarctica has recorded lower temperatures than Oymyakon or Verkhoyansk. Verkhoyansk holds the Guinness world record for the greatest temperature range on Earth.

5. North Ice, Greenland

The North Ice was a research station of the British North Greenland Expedition. This is at No. 5 in the list of coldest places in the world. The lowest temperatures recorded are -86.8 °F and -66°C . At an altitude of 2,341 meters (7,680 feet) above sea level, it was once the name of a research station.

6. Eismitte, Greenland

This place is on the interior Arctic side of Greenland. It has ice everywhere thus, called Mid-Ice or Center-Ice. The coldest temperature recorded during the expedition was −64.9 °C (−85 °F). Eismitte means Ice-Center in German

Eismitte is one of the coldest places in the Northern Hemisphere. During the expedition, the coldest temperature recorded was −64.9 °C (−85 °F) in March, while the warmest temperature recorded was −1.8 °C (28.8 °F) in July. The warmest month noted was July, −12.2 °C (10 °F), while the coldest month, February, averaged −47.2 °C (−53 °F). Interestingly, the sun does not set between May 13 and July 30 each year. Also, between November 23 and January 20, the sun does not rise this is really incredible.

7. Snag, Yukon, Canada

The snag is a village and is rated number seven in the top 10 coldest places list. Snag is located on a small, dry-weather sideroad off the Alaska Highway 25 km south of Beaver Creek, Yukon, Canada. It is located in a bowl-shaped valley of the White River.

As of 1947, the Snag village has a total population of 10 First Nation people and 4 traders. An additional staff of 20 airport personnel including meteorologists, radio operators, aircraft maintenance men, lived at the airport barracks. The weather is chilly and freezing, the coldest month is January and the lowest temperature recorded is −63.0 °C (−81.4 °F).

8. Prospect Creek, Alaska, USA

Prospect Creek is a very small settlement about 180 miles north of present-day Fairbanks and 25 miles southeast of present-day Bettles, Alaska. Prospect Creek was named the coldest place in the United States and it has a sub-arctic sort of weather which means that winters last for a long period of time and summers are very short. Weather conditions are even more severe now so the area is less crowded now. The record low temperature of −80 °F (−62 °C) was recorded.

Located at 643 feet (196 m) above sea level, Prospect Creek was home to numerous mining expeditions. It was also the camp for the building of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System.

9. Fort Selkirk, Yukon, Canada

Fort Selkirk is a former trading post on the Yukon River at the confluence of the Pelly River in Canada’s Yukon. In 1950 this place was deserted because of extreme cold conditions. There is no road access. Most visitors get there by boat or a plane. The coldest month is January and the lowest temperature is -74 °F.

10. Rogers Pass, Montana, USA

Rogers Pass is located 5,610 feet above sea level and is the second coldest location in the U.S. It is located on the continental divide in the U.S. state of Montana. Rogers Pass is considered the best route between the cities of Great Falls and Missoula, Montana. The Pass is the location of the coldest temperature ever recorded in the USA outside of Alaska. On January 20, 1954, a low temperature of −70 °F (−57 °C) was recorded.
