O y m y a k u n

Oymyakun are in northeastern Siberia, Jakutiya, Russia. Then see with my own eyes: Petrol frozen fish within 5 minutes so as hard as wood, and milk are sold in tablets of stone like marble. area which is about 2900 km from the North Pole is well-deserved known as "the coldest" in the world. Almost all the houses in Oymyakun made of wood. Throughout the brief summer, this area of land turned into a swamp - swamp if made of concrete could drown. To achieve Oymyakun, we had to pass a cold airport Jakutsk reach - 34 C, the passenger plane was forced to wear boots, reindeer fur. Although just after 15:00, the sun was sinking. We arrived at 03.00 o'clock Oymyakun, with the air temperature - 51 C. And in temperature - 45 C alone, gasoline was frozen, that's why, throughout the winter to keep the engine in turn. If not, the engine can be damaged. The cold felt "burned" when we put cream Facilitate the flow of blood to the face. In half a minute nose feels congested. According to bagenov, that's not how. When the temperature slumped to - 64 C breath and bones - bone freezing, even saliva instantly fell as ice chips! . During 12 months of almost no wind. Winter can last up to nine months. Conversely, in summer the temperature can reach 35 C. For those who've never been there and liked in cold regions could try to Oymyakun. I also heard stories from friends and read the brochure, it is still many areas that need to go and very magnificent. I have plans to go there but wait for the tickets and money.
