The world's driest CITY

If we imagine the Antarctic, then that first appeared in our minds the image of a place that is fully covered with snow. However, it will be much different from the dry valleys in Antarctica which was the driest place in the world. These valleys have very low humidity and almost no ice or snow covering a surface, so that this valley is the largest ice-free areas on the continent. 

The closest mountain high enough to block the ice from the sea to reach the valley. Unique conditions of the ice-free is also partly caused by katabatic winds that blow strong and occurs when air is dense and cold downhill because they are attracted by gravity. These winds can reach speeds of 322 km / h, so that the air friction can heat and vaporize all the water, ice and snow. agen bola
