How to Budget Travel to the Coldest Town on Earth

How to Budget Travel to the Coldest Town on Earth

By Mack Lamoureux, Ben Richmond

The average temperature drops to -50 degrees celsius (-58 F) during with the coldest temperature ever recorded at -71 degrees celsius (-95.8 F). We caught up with Saxena to know his experience of travelling to such a cold place which has got no hotels, and more importantly, to know why one would do this. It was -53 degrees celsius when I got there. What do you eat in a place where nothing can ever grow and boiling water freezes in milliseconds? Ice cream is at -15 degrees celsius, but outside weather is -50 degrees, so they joke that to get warm they eat ice cream!
