Top Coldest Places in the world
Number 1: Antarctica
The South Pole is, of course, a frighteningly very cold place. It now holds the record low air temperature of minus 128.5 degrees Fahrenheit, recorded at Russia’s Vostok Station in 1983. However, that record may have been broken by a 2010 satellite measurement, which noted a ground temperature of negative 136 degrees Fahrenheit along the East Antarctic (Flat area of land). With temperatures like that, the seventh continent isn’t the kind of place you’d want to be stuck at for too long. The South Pole is, of course, a frighteningly very cold place. It now holds the record low air temperature of minus 128.5 degrees Fahrenheit, recorded at Russia’s Vostok Station in 1983. This is also about as one of the coldest places on the earth. The Russian researcher recorded the lowest temperature was taken at – 89.2 degrees Celsius. Antarctica is famous as the coldest place of the earth. This place is also famous as the windiest and has the highest overall elevation of any continent in the world. It is also said about Antarctica that it receives about 90% of the ice in the world. The Vostok Station in Antarctica receives almost no rainfall.
Number 2: Oymyakon, Russia
This is a second coldest place of the world. It is located in Russia. This place saw the lowest temperature of – 90 degrees F on 6th February, 1993. This place also has a low residency ratio due to extreme weather conditions. This place has a well-developed tourist department which has (helped increase/showed in a good way) the town as a perfect destination for fun trip travellers who are hungry for a taste of the extreme. Oymyakon, Russia, is the coldest lived-in town on Earth. Its population of 500 people braves temperatures that have dipped to -90 degrees Fahrenheit. (Even though there is the existence of) the harsh conditions, life is pretty (usual/ commonly and regular/ healthy) there.
Oymyakon is known as “The Pole of Cold.”
A small town of 500 located in the Republic of Sakha in northeast Russia, it’s believed by almost everyone to be the coldest lived-in town on Earth. Temperatures there average around -58Â° F during the winter months.
Here’s what it’s like to live and work in Oymyakon’s sub-zero climate.
