Let's take a short vacation around the World and stop by some of the most extreme locations on the Earth if you're typically the one doing the most but are currently stuck inside. You can do this safely from your screen.

You don't even need to put on clothes or carry anything! I can't guarantee that being aware of trivial details here will make you more popular. But you never know when this information might be useful— possibly tonight at an online happy hour or during a future Jeopardy! Audition?

At the very least, you'll be ready with an answer the next time someone asks, "If you were an extreme area on Earth, what would you be?" Are you a barren, rocky mountain? The frigid glacier? A geothermal area that is hot? Several hundred mountains remain unclimbed, and no one has ever reached the summit (or even come near).

The coldest Place, Antarctica

Antarctica wins the prize for being the planet's coldest location. Using satellites, scientists measured temperatures in Fahrenheit (62 degrees Celsius) on a frozen plateau near the South Pole.

While you #IcebergsAndChill with Polar Latitudes, the weather may not exactly motivate you to pack your swimwear, but you can warm up in the heated saltwater pool on the deck of MS Sea venture. Or, if you're feeling very daring, you may join the environmentally-minded explorers at Aurora Expeditions for a polar dive as part of your Antarctic experience.

You won't be traveling to Antarctica in the coldest season of the year, and you won't fall into a mountain of snow up on the South Pole plateau, so don't worry. However, there's a strong chance that when you see the adorable penguins and other amazing creatures that call the World's greatest location home, you won't be able to contain your excitement. The first extreme place in the World.

The Hottest Place Death Valley, California

There is substantial controversy over the hottest location on Earth because temperatures in many hostile, searing-hot regions aren't frequently measured.

At 134 degrees Fahrenheit, Furnace Creek in Death Valley, California, has the record for the highest temperature ever observed (57 degrees Celsius). Take in the expansive views of Badwater Basin from Dante's View, Zabriskie Point lookout, or a ranger-led tour while admiring the badlands of Death Valley National Park. The Second extreme place in the World.

The Dallol region of northern Ethiopia has an average temperature of 94 degrees Fahrenheit, making it the warmest regularly populated area on Earth. With the help of a dependable tour company like Kibran Tours or Wild Frontiers, you may explore the region's unique geothermal activity and unearthly landscapes.

The Driest Place Atacama Desert, Chile

Normally, nobody aspires to be left high and dry. However, the Atacama Desert in Chile is a beautiful location for exploring geothermal vistas by day and the vast, starry sky by night. It is the highest and driest nonpolar desert on Earth. The family-run Tierra Atacama can plan your desert excursions to include trips to see flamingos, geysers, and full moon hikes.

The Wettest Place Mawsynram, India

You'll need your rain gear if you're visiting Mawsynram. This hamlet is the wettest place on Earth because of its approximately 500 inches of annual precipitation.

The rain pours down when moist monsoon winds from the Bay of Bengal strike the mountains at Mawsynram; occasionally, the rain sounds so loud that villagers put grass on their roofs to block it out. The fourth and one of the most extreme places in the World.

The Tallest Mountain, Mauna Kea, Hawaii

Here is some mountain trivia to help you win the game night: The tallest peak on Earth is not Mount Everest. The peak is, in fact, the highest point above sea level on Earth at 29,029 feet. But Mauna Kea, a revered volcano in Hawaii that rises more than 33,500 feet, holds the record for being the tallest mountain in the World, measured from peak to base.

The Highest Free Standing Mountain is Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Therefore, Mount Kilimanjaro is very large and lonely. With a height of 19,341 feet above sea level and without being a mountain range, it is the tallest "free-standing" peak. One of the greatest places to see this lone beauty is at Campi ya Kanzi in Kenya. Or, if you'd want to combine a safari with climbing, Nomad Tanzania can make that adventurous fantasy come true.

The Lowest Point on Dry Land, the Dead Sea

Can you go any lower? The salt-covered shoreline of the Dead Sea, which Jordan, Palestine, and Israel share, can be reached without even dipping a toe in the water, reaching a depth of around 1,350 feet below sea level.

This area of dry ground is the lowest in the World. Of course, you should immerse yourself in the Dead Sea's mineral-rich waters while you're here. The salt in this hypersaline lake produces buoyancy, so you won't have to worry about sinking or swimming as you float in this large, salty bath. However, don't anticipate falling to new depths.

The Southern Most Point on Land South Pole

The driest, windiest, and coldest continent is Antarctica. The farthest point south on land is also located there. Moreover, people live at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, where they undertake studies in biomedicine, astronomy, astrophysics, glaciology, and seismology.

Only at this inhabited location on land does the sunshine for six consecutive months, followed by six straight months of total darkness.

There are indications of human existence in Tristan da Cunha, which is around 1,400 miles from uninhabited Bouvet Island. The most isolated town on Earth, Edinburgh of the Seven Seas, is located on this island in the South Atlantic Ocean and is home to less than 300 people.

Saint Helena Island, located 1,350 miles distant, is the closest populated area. Climb to The Base on Tristan da Cunha to see the crater of the volcano that, despite miraculously sparing nearby residences and a vital freshwater spring in 1961, destroyed beaches and a crawfish canning factory.

The most underground Town Coober Pedy

Coober Pedy submerged underwater about 150 million years ago. Sand-like silica grains from the seafloor ran into rock fissures as the water retreated, eventually solidifying to form the multicolored gemstone known as opal.

The Darkest Town Rjukan, Norway

Rjukan, a village in a valley west of Oslo, Norway, has some very dark days because of the high mountains and the sun's low position. Due to its location in the shadow of the mountains, Rjukan does not receive direct sunshine for six months.

At least, it didn't receive direct sunshine until the town took action in 2013 and finally put a century-old plan to use a system of artificial mirrors installed on the mountaintop to funnel sunlight into the town action.

The Largest Coral Reef, the Great Barrier Reef

You can't avoid the size of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, which is situated off the coast of Tropical North Queensland. It is the largest building on Earth and can be seen from the moon thanks to its length, which s the entire west coast of the United States (from the Canadian border to Mexico).

It's critical to carefully select your tour operator because huge coral bleaching occurrences have destroyed parts of the reef.

Ask about Master Reef Guides, the knowledgeable reef storytellers who offer essential information about the reef ecosystems and suggestions for how visitors may assist conservation efforts. Look for tour companies that have received eco-certification from Ecotourism Australia. Last but not least extreme place in the World.
