The coldest desert in the world is Antarctica. It is a continent located around the South Pole and is almost entirely covered in ice. The average temperature on Antarctica is -56Â°C (-69Â°F), but it can get as cold as -89Â°C (-129Â°F). The wind chill factor can make it feel even colder.
There are no permanent residents on Antarctica, but there are scientists who live there for part of the year to study the environment and wildlife. They have to be prepared for extreme conditions, including blizzards and temperatures that can drop below -60Â°C (-76Â°F).
