Situated in the middle of Siberia, this wonderful village called Oymyakon of Russia is widely thought to be the known coldest lived place on the universe. A temperature of – 90 F was noted there in 1933 the lowest noted temperature for any for all time inhabited place in the world.

New Zealand-born photographer named Amos Chapple decided to pay a visit to this village with 500 men and captured a progression of beautiful photos showing what life resembles inside and outside this wonderful village.





Flying out to the village typically involves a 48 hour drive from the city Yakutsk which 300,000 heads that has normal winter temperatures of – 30 F, placing it on list of the coldest places in the world.



The people Oymyakon deal with extraordinary challenges that the greater part of the world cannot relate with: there is very minimal plumbing indoor because to the frozen territory, motor vehicles that are left outside heated carports must be ceaselessly running keeping in mind that they go into profound freeze.

In some other cold places of the world, crops grow in some season. However, with Oymyakon, things are distinctive. To the residents food is the main problem to them. Most of you may ask how the residents eat. Meat is the staple food in Oymyakon. This is due to the regions inability to grow any type of crops.

Chapple commented that among the biggest challenges was taking photos in this venture apart from living in the savage coldness was working his camera. The place was cold to the point that his focal point focus and zooming rings will occasionally get frozen in the camera. Notwithstanding that, wearing glasses outside can cause them to stick to the eyes of the one wearing them. This is only one of the more problems of the extremely cold weather that Oymyakon face.
