Stunning Images From The Coldest Village In The World Where The Temperature Reached -62°C (-80°F)!

Welcome to Oymyakon village, where students are supposed to attend class until temperatures reach minus -52°C (-62°F). In case you haven't heard of it, the remote Siberian village is the coldest permanently inhabited settlement on Earth. The temperature has now reached a -62°C (-80°F) winter, making our everyday complaints about the weather sound rather silly.


The official weather station registered -59°C (-74°F). However, the new electronic thermometer claimed that the weather was -62°C (-80°F). It even stopped working after it reached the painful mark! Some of the 500 locals also claim that the temperatures are -68°C (-90°F).


In the 1920s and 1930s, Oymyakon used to be a stopover for reindeer herders who watered their flocks from the thermal spring. The Soviet Government later transformed the site into a permanent settlement, trying to force its nomadic population into putting down roots. In 1933, a temperature of -67.7°C (−89.9°F) was recorded in Oymyakon, considered to be the lowest ever in the Northern Hemisphere.

Street vendors don't need to refrigerate their fish since the air temperature is enough to secure they won't rot away. However, they do need to keep themselves as warm as they can.
