Extreme heat in MENA area

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

When temperatures are about 40-45 degrees C, is it possible to do physical activities outside, like waslking, running, hiking (if there are mountain), provided that one stays hydrated and covers properly (an Arab headscarf , sunblock)?

 

I am quite heat tolerant for a Central European - last summer when it was 36 degrees Celsius outside, I would go outdoors and barely even notice the heat, it just felt like perfect weather to me.

If the outside temperature is above body temperature it becomes very difficult to do any outdoor activities. Even a healthy person might become sick or die if he doesn't find a way to cool off, such as drinking cool water, shade, clothing, and hopefully a breeze if he can't get into air conditioning.
