If you think that the winter where you live is cold, the people in the village of Oymyakon, Russia will have a good chuckle at your expense. Located in the heart of Siberian, Oymyakon is considered to be the coldest inhabitable place in the world. With a temperature record of −90°f (−67°c) back in 1933, and an average of −60°f (−50°c) in January, it’s easy to see why.

When  Amos Chappel , a photographer from New-Zealand, travelled to this frozen location, he brought back incredible pictures depicting the daily lives of the 500 inhabitants of this extraordinary village.

The only road to Oymyakon, known as "The Road of Bones"

A cloud of cold, blowing into a local building

The local market in Yakutsk

A coal-burning plant provides the locals with heating

You can't even leave your shoes outside

The only shop in the village is a general store

A cattle herdsman

To keep his cows warm, a local farmer built them a special barn.

The village sign: Oymyakon - "Pole of Cold"

Cars must be kept running or else they freeze and won't restart.

It's impossible to have indoor plumbing because it freezes

A local beauty

These dogs have an extra-thick layer of fur to keep them warm

Some of the images were taken in nearby Yakutsk – the coldest city in the world.
