Expedition to the Pole of Cold
Ethnic trip to Yakutia in winter

It's the land of permafrost, where thermometers record the lowest temperatures in the world. Not only people, but also animals have to survive in such harsh conditions. You will see special breeds of Yakut horses and cows, go on dog sledding, try traditional Even cuisine and take part in the mysterious ethnic purification rite.

Winter journey to Yakutia

«I was wearing thin trousers when I first stepped outside into – 47 °C (-52°F). I remember feeling like the cold was physically gripping my legs, the other surprise was that occasionally my saliva would freeze into needles that would prick my lips» – Amos Chapple, New Zealand-based photographer.
