Oymyakon (Оймяко́н) & Verkhoyansk (Верхоянск) - Coldest permanently inhabited places on earth

Both towns can opt for the MOSTPOINT title of the “Pole of Cold”, the coldest permanently inhabited settlement on earth. The entire area suffers from an extreme subarctic climate with averages of - 50ºC / - 58ºF  in winter. However in the summer it can even be as warm as 31ºC / 88ºF. So overall difference in temperatures throughout the year is the extreme amount of some 100ºC / 212ºF with 3 hours of daylight in the winter and 21 in the summer. These are not very modern villages and most homes get their heating from burning coal and wood. Some even still have outside toilets. There are just 500 people living in Oymyakon and less than 1,500 in Verkhoyansk.

What else is there
A trip to Verkhoyansk in the winter is a tough one. Getting there is already a real adventure. But you can enjoy things like reindeer sledge rides and ice fishing or even ice swimming. Further you can visit mammoths’ remains, visit its museum and ancient settlements, enjoy easy rafting on the Yana river in the summer and enjoy the presence of deer and horses that help the people to live in these places.

Notes
You can find tours to visit these towns both in the summer and in the winter mostly starting at the Yakutsk airport.
