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:
The Central Market is full of fish and meat as the crops do not grow there
Even Traffic lights freeze
Frozen Fashion in Oymyakon
The ‘Road Of Bones’ is the only route to the village
The village sign reads ‘Omyakon, The Pole Of Cold’
Don't worry, a thick layer of fur keeps these dogs warm
Most toilets are built outside, because the frozen ground makes it impossible to build indoor plumbing
Vehicles can only be placed in heated garages. The ones left outside must keep running, otherwise they won’t restart
Just another normal day in Oymyakon
A coal heating plant keeps locals warm
So, Who's coming to Oymyakon village?
