Where is the driest desert in the world?
The Atacama Desert stretches for 600 miles from the southern border of Peru into northern Chile. The Atacama is the driest place on planet Earth, with areas having never recorded any rainfall in the decades that humans have measured it. When averaged, the rainfall per year for the Atacama measures less than 0.004 inches. Human life finds a way, however, as over a million people call the Atacama home today.
