On January 24, 2010, RussiaToday aired the 25-min report about Yakutia. A nice story. Synopsis: Yakutia is the largest republic in Russia and one of the most extreme places on the planet. It’s officially the coldest inhabited place on earth. Yakutsk is the capital and largest city of the region, built entirely on permafrost. But despite the cold weather, our correspondent James Brown found plenty of warm people there. Explore Yakutia with us on RT.
Hannes, many thanks for sharing with the slideshow video, and it’s really great to hear that you liked the the journey to Oymyakon, the Pole of Cold.
This road was built by the inmates of Gulag camps, most of them were buried along the way. That’s why it’s named the Road of Bones.
Our ice fishing on the Indigirka River was so short that we decided to make an experiment.
I have an US-based friend on Facebook. His name is Sid Korn. A few days ago he informed me that he created the slideshow using my pictures of the recent road trip to Oymyakon, the Pole of Cold. Here it is.
I love this video. It shows how we were really happy to be on the Pole of Cold in Oymyakon (Yakutia/Siberia).
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.
Helping Mario and Orio with their travel to Oymyakon, the Pole of Cold. They decided to fly to Ust Nera, then to drive south to Oymyakon, where they will stay one week and make footage for the 30-min documentary to show on Channel 5 Spain. The photo was made today on Lenin Ave. in Yakutsk.
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.
