Bisnis.com, JAKARTA- Country the coldest place in the world can be a tourist destination for those of you who want a new atmosphere from the heat of Indonesia. Spending a vacation in this coldest country can be an exciting experience that you can have.
The coldest country in the world
As knowledge, there are two poles on Earth, namely the North Pole and the South Pole. The existence of these two poles means that countries adjacent to them have colder temperatures and climates than countries far from these two poles.
So which country has the coldest temperature in the world? Here are some of the coldest countries in the world you need to know.
The coldest country in the world number one is Russia. This country once reached a temperature of -67.7 degrees Celsius in 1933. The place that has this temperature is Oymyakon. Oymyakon is one of the cold poles of the district of the Republic of Sakha, Russia, and is a remote region.
Oymyakon has a permanent cold air. During winter, the weather in this region is also very extreme. Extreme weather conditions make mobile phones difficult to use as their batteries freeze due to too cold temperatures.
Greenland is also the coldest country in the world. Greenland is an island nation located in the North Atlantic Ocean.
Many are fooled by the name Greenland and think Greenland is green grass, but that assumption turns out to be wrong. Greenland is precisely a country where 80% of its territory is covered with ice caps and glaciers.
Greenland has already reached its lowest temperature of -66.1 degrees Celsius in 1954. This temperature is the second coldest temperature in the world after Oymyakon, Russia.
Canada is the next country with the coldest temperature in the world. Canada is located in North America and has 10 provinces and three capital territories.
Canada has a population of 38 million and makes Canada one of the most densely populated countries in the world. The coldest temperature in Canada reached -63 degrees Celsius, precisely in the Snag region, in the Yukon, in 1947.
4. United States of America
The second coldest country is the United States. It turned out that in 1971, on January 23, the lowest temperature in America reached -62.2 degrees Celsius. The region with the coldest temperature in America at that time was Prospect Creek Camp, near the Arctic Circle in Alaska.
The second coldest country is China. The lowest temperature ever held by China was -58 degrees Celsius, precisely in the Genhe region of Inner Mongolia, which occurred on December 31, 2009.
The second coldest country in the world is Mongolia. This country is located in the region of East Asia. Mongolia is bordered by Russia to the north and China to the south. The lowest temperature this country has ever experienced was -55.3 degrees Celsius in December 1976.
These are some of the coldest countries in the world. These countries have high temperatures due to their proximity to the North and South Poles.
Indonesia is not included in the list because our country is located on the equator with a tropical climate. So, even though Indonesia has many mountains and high plateaus, the temperature is still less cold than in the previously mentioned countries.
