Think it's cold where you live? This is how life in minus 90 fahrenheit looks like!

If you think it is cold where you are at the moment then a visit to the Russian village of Oymyakon might just change your mind.

With the average temperature for January standing at minus 50 degrees Celsius, it is no wonder the village is the coldest permanently inhabited settlement in the world.

Some travel companies have launched the travel tour to allow tourists to experience the life in the "Pole of Cold".

 

New Zealand-based photographer Amos Chapple decided to go on a two-day journey from Yakutsk, the coldest major city on Earth, to capture what everyday life is like in Oymyakon.

 

This is how it looks like:

Vehicles can only be placed in heated garages. The ones left outside must keep running, otherwise they won’t restart
