An icy breath of Siberia. Even in the summer, there is no land  here - only Permafrost. The village of Oymyakon, situated in this region, is the coldest inhabited place on Earth. In the winter, temperatures at the “Pole of Cold” drops to -76 degrees Farenheit (-60 degrees Celsius). It is difficult to believe that people live in such conditions – and yet the residents of Oymyakov are known for their longevity.
