What it’s like living in the coldest town on earth?

How to live and survive when the temperature falls below minus 60 degrees Celsius?

The extreme low temperatures are cold enough to freeze car batteries. Meanwhile a thick fog is a constant presence in the city, giving its otherworldly aura.

Why do people choose to live in such a harsh environment?

This video is about how people are living and enjoying life in the coldest town on earth, Yakutia.

I guys. I am Kiun. I grew up in the coldest place on earth, Yakutia. Many people were asking about our daily life during the wintertime.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Experiments at -55 C.

There is also a lot of fun during the wintertime in Yakutia. You can do a lot of funny experiments outside.

And everything can be immediately be frozen, for example, the fruits can be frozen so fast so you can just use them as a hammer.

And the wet clothes they freeze really fast and so they become like a paper. Instant noodles also freezes in a few minutes.

Boiling water freezes in the air, creating aerial crystals.
Outdoor Activities

Obviously, you can’t spend your whole life indoors, especially when the winter is seven months long. The outdoor activities in Yakutia include ice-fishing. Locals fish in the longest river in the world, the Lena River.

To do this, they drill a hole through the ice and then start fishing.

.     .     .      .     .     .     .     .

Yakutian Cuisine

The traditional Yakutian cuisine is also influenced a lot by our climate. And one of my favorite, traditional frozen dish is stroganina. Stroganina is the frozen, raw fish sliced into a thick layer. So you can just eat this stroganina with salt and pepper. And it’s so delicious.

Also one of my favorite frozen salads, indigirka. It’s a frozen fish cubes with the oil, onion, pepper and salt. It’s so delicious as well.

Also in our traditional cuisine, we have a frozen horse meat, frozen, raw horse liver which is eaten raw. And you need to eat it immediately.

One of the Yakutian dessert is a kyercheh. Kyercheh is like ice cream, but made by cream and berries.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Ice Water

Digging walls is really expensive in Yakutia due to the thick layer of the thick permafrost. So in a lot of Yakutian villages there are no water treatment facilities.

So they don’t have any other options, but to go to the lake and cut these ice blocks for an hour.

I actually tried this ice water myself from the lake and it actually tastes much better than the water from the tap.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Winter Outfit

I remember when I was a kid, I was always wearing a lot of fur; like fur coat, hats made of furs, the mittens and also the traditional Yakutian boots made from deer fur. It’s one of the must-have boots during the wintertime in Yakutia.

I remember when I was going outside I was always wrapping my face with a scarf. And after 15 minutes going outside my eyelashes and eyebrows were always covered with frost.

So when you are walking around the city, you can barely see anything around you, because the city is shrouded in a frosty fog.

It’s actually also really dangerous if you forget your mittens at home you can easily freeze your fingers. And i remember when i was a kid I also froze my cheeks a lot of times.

So it’s really important to wrap your face with a scarf.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

So that’s pretty much what I wanted to talk about our winter lifestyle in Yakutia I hope you liked this video and it was interesting.

For you bye bye. See you in the next video.
