Oymyakon, Russia This town has a reputation of being the coldest inhabited town in the world! The average temperature is around -58 degrees, and it is completely dark for up to 21 hours a day during winter. But in 1933, the temperature dropped to a bone-chilling -90! Because of the temperature, it is practically impossible to grow any crops here, which is one of the major drawbacks for the inhabitants. The people are forced to use food such as frozen fish meat, reindeer meat and the local delicacy – ice-cubed horse blood with macaroni. Yummy! Another problem for the people of Oymyakon is the plumbing. Because of the harsh weather, the plumbing systems will freeze, so the locals have outhouses. Good old outhouses in the freezing weather. As for their cars, people keep them inside heated garages, or simply leave them running outside. Oymyakon is 576 miles away from the nearest major city of Yakutsk, and it will take you a couple of days to get there, so be prepared. But the place has a great reputation, with interesting people, indoor fun and games and an “exotic” cuisine, to say the least. How they manage to keep sane in that weather, though – is beyond me. 9. Easter Island, Chile This is one of the most isolated islands in the world with a population of around 6,500 people. It is 2,500 miles east of Tahiti and the nearest continental point is in Chile, some 2,300 miles away. In 1888, Chile annexed Easter Island, and from then on it’s been considered a part of Insular Chile. As you probably know, Easter Island is most famous for its almost 900 giant stone heads, known as Moai by the Rapa Nui people who carved the figures. These monoliths are from between 1,100 and 1,500 AD and have actual hidden bodies underneath the ground. Their creators were master craftsmen and engineers and there is still much speculation and mystery surrounding their purpose. Easter Island is a volcanic hot spot, similar to Hawaii, but the only regular flights are via LAN airlines from Santiago de Chile. It’s quite out of the way for almost everyone and it is pretty much only convenient if you are doing a trip around the world. 8. Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland This small settlement in Greenland is one of the remotest settlements on Earth. It was founded in 1925, and it’s the farthest of all inhabited areas on Greenland. The only way to get to it is by helicopter or boat! This place, practically at the edge of the world, has a population of just 450 people, but there have been a lot of tourists in recent years. This place is actually very close to the biggest multi-branched fjord system in the world, and a national park so the surrounding scenery is nothing short of amazing. It’s frozen 9 months out of the year and the only way this town can survive is through fishing and hunting. If you want to visit Ittoqqortoormiit as a tourist, it’s totally possible; it has one bright orange guesthouse in town, a pub that opens one night a week, a general store, and a post office. Travel companies can arrange all manner of adventurous excursions, from dog sledding and kayaking to hiking and hunting. Just be ready for chilly weather! 7. La Rinconada, Peru This is a small mining town located high up in the Peruvian Andes. It is officially the world’s highest city, at 5,130 m above sea level. La Rinconada lies on a glacier that’s permanently frozen, and the only way to reach it is by truck via winding roads up the mountain. There is no airport anywhere close by. Not many people can handle the trip to La Rinconada, let alone live there. To reach the city takes days and then you have to deal with the altitude sickness, which is an ordeal in itself. Nevertheless, this place has a population of 30,000 people. Why? Because word got out that there was gold in the area so prospectors moved to the remote location by the thousands. Most of them are involved in the gold mining business. Allegedly, the working conditions in La Rinconada are deplorable, which only add to the misery of this place. It operates under a system where miners work throughout the month for no pay. After their 30 days, they can leave the mine hauling as much ore as they can carry on their person. The catch is there is no way of telling if there is any gold in the ore at all.

Lived and worked in Barrow and the other North Slope Villages for 2.5 years. Absolutely bizarre place to live. The thing that struck me every so often as I took in my surroundings was Who The Fuck thought it was a good idea to live there in the first place? I get the reasons now, oil and natural gas reserves lie beneath the frozen tundra of the Slope and the Alaskan Pipeline runs south from Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay.

I will never go to where ice cubed horse blood is required! I do not want my immune system to attack me for taking in foreign body fluid. It is not happening in my body.

Wonder where would they get the horse, for the IceCube Horse blood with macaroni in Russia? Don't think I'd like them.

I appreciate your vids! Out of curiosity, is the pic at 9:15 showing Cape Town, South Africa? (It's obviously not Edinburgh of the Seven Seas, Tristan da Cunha. 🙂)

Actually, apparently ice cube blood is very popular in many cold regions. According to the areas that do this, they're really good.
