Are you complaining of cold? Try to visit Oimyakon settlement where January temperature may remain below -50ºС for weeks. The lowest temperature in the history of this place was equal to -71,2ºС!!!


Oimyakon is inhabited by 500 people. In the 20th and 30th years of the last century it was a stop for deer herders.In the Soviet years there was made an attempt to take control over the nomads, who were considered wild, the settlement appeared as a result of that attempt.

How brave those people who survive in that lowest temperature. We have on -10 in winter but they have 5 to 7 times more lower temperature. Thanks for sharing that amazing place. Please share more photos of that place.

Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

You want cold? Just stayed for a few days in Qitai (Xinjiang). Temperatures reached -30 degrees yesterday here. Anyhow, it's nice and sunny during the day!

Jesus! Why do people have to live in such places. I am sure they can find a means of living elsewhere.
