Journey to the Pole of Cold

Gas station in the village of Kyubyume on the way to Oymyakon, Tomtor and the Pole of Cold. The temperature is at this time already -47,1 °C. We passed Verkhoyansk Range which is a mountain range of eastern Siberia, spanning ca. 1000 km (600 m.), across the Sakha Republic. It forms a vast arc between the Lena and Aldan rivers to the west and the Yana River to the east. It rises to ca. 2,480 m (8,150 ft) in the south. There are coal, silver, lead, and zinc deposits. It lies just west of the boundary of the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates..The world's lowest temperatures for inhabited places have been recorded in this region, and there is quite deep snow cover for most of the year. Kyubyume, Jakutien, Yakutia, Russian Federation, Russia, RUS, 18.01.2010
