Hottest surface on earth, Iran’s Lut desert: NASA NASA's Aqua satellite from 2003 to 2010 has testified that the hottest land surface on Earth is located in Dashte-e Lut in Kerman Province, reaching temperatures of up to 70.7 °C (159.3 °F). The air temperature, however, is a bit cooler. The hottest part of Lut desert is Gandom Beryan (meaning “toasted wheat” in Persian), a large plateau covered in dark lava, approximately 480 square kilometers (190 square miles) in area. #iFilm
