Yes, we did it. We were in Yakutia’s valley of Oymyakon. Our first morning in the coldest place in Siberia. It was -52C. Pretty good, indeed and felt really good. Watch the video and see what cold air we were breating.
Our journey to Oymyakon, the Pole of Cold, was awesome. It was a sort of a fun road trip with friends. A great adventure! Great impressions! Major sightseeings in Oymyakon are people, their life and extreme cold. So… enjoy the slideshow. The set will be, certainly, extended.
This set will be updated all the time. Need more time to select more pictures of our trip. Today you can see the first portion.

So we returned from the Pole of Cold, Yakutia/Siberia. The journey to Oymyakon was awesome. I need more time to publish good posts about our road trip to one of Yakutia’s coldest regions. To give an idea of the Pole of Cold, watch this video. We were measuring temperature in Oymyakon. You can see how the cold went from -35C down to -52C. It happened at 11.00 am on Jan. 20, 2010. The journey was arranged by AskYakutia Fun Adventure Team.

It takes a set of brass balls to drive over this thing. 570 meter (1870 feet) long Vitim River bridge. The bridge is 15 meters above the water and has no railings. Located in Yakutia. By now the video from passing through the bridge on the Vitim River has got over a million hits on the Internet. The video became as the Internet meme.
