Oymyakon, Russia is the coldest inhabited place on Earth.

Written by on June 24, 2023

The valley of Oymyakon in Yakutia—or The Pole of Cold—is located in northeast Russia. Here temperatures can reach -70℃, which is so cold that even alcohol freezes. With few modern conveniences available, this seemingly uninhabitable village is home to 500 Siberian people with traditional occupations like reindeer herding, hunting, and fishing. Tourism is also becoming popular among those who can brave the harsh conditions.
