Oymyakon: A Town That Gets Colder than The Peak of Mt Everest
by Samuel Kiranga8 years ago1 min read
Deep into the northwestern frontiers of Russia, a population of 500 people in a Siberian town called Oymyakon spends a few extra ounces of fuel everyday to keep their cars running overnight so as to ensure they’ll start the next day. They melt the earth in order to bury their dead and scurry around hurriedly across the streets to beat the cold.
The temperatures in Oymyakon dip as far down as –67.7 degrees Celsius in the winter and on average, they stick to around –46 degrees. The town has thus been named one of the coldest place on earth with human life. The coldest ever temperature recorded in Oymyakon was –71.2C.
