Ataka – the driest place on the planet,

 Chile Atacama is a South American desert located between the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes mountain range in the east of the territory of Chile. It extends parallel to the coast of the Pacific Ocean about 1,000 km in length with a width of up to 160 km, which gives the surface area equal to Great Britain. The desert is old about 15 million years ago and is a dry plateau composed of saline soil, sand and petrified lava.
