Journey to the Pole of Cold (3) - Yakutsk (Russia) to Oymyakon (Russia)

We passed Verkhoyansk Range, a mountain rage on the way to the Oymyakon valley. The road became worse and our travel speed became more and more slow. The landscape and panorama was incredible beautiful. After more then 20 hours, including a sleeping break in Handyga, we reached our guesthouse in the village of Kujdusun about two kilometers from Tomtor, and a few kilometers from the Pole of Cold. During our journey we were disappointed because the temperature did not climb under -44 degrees below zero but after passing the village of Ütschügej we measure for the first time a temperature below -50 degrees Celsius.
