The World’s Coldest Road. Kolyma Highway in Yakutia, Siberia / Russia [video]

The photographs were taken on the road between Oymyakon and Khandyga in the mountain part of the Kolyma Highway known also as Stalin’s Road of Bones.

When we were driving, the outdoor temperature was as low as -55C. In the beginning of the way, i.e. in the village of Tomtor in the Oymyakon area, we registerd -57.3C. Extremely cold. Not surprised that the Kolyma road is considered by many as the coldest one in the world.

Photographs are mine. Song by the Yakutia-based rock band «103» (give this group your like at http://facebook.com/103RockBand) Performed in the Sakha language.
