Things to Bring when Traveling to The Pole of Cold - Oymyakon | Travel Tips | Siberia, Russia | S.Sulianah
This is a short video on how Oymyakon district looks like. Maybe you are trying to check the place out before deciding on your trip there. Remember to add Oymyakon in your itinerary when you are travelling to Yakutsk, The Coldest City in the World. Oymyakon has a record temperature of -72.8 Degree Celsius so before you leave to visit the place, please be prepared on what to bring. I would like to suggest that you engage a local travel guide to drive you there. Normally, you will be assigned with a group of other travelers in the same van or SUV. So, you can ask your travel guide once you book your slot. I was assigned with 5 other travelers who are guys, and I was the only woman there. Initially, I was quite worried about safety but at that time I thought there will be a couple who will be joining us so I assumed a woman will be there too. But they changed their travel schedule and therefore I was the only one. Before the trip I was worried but when I met them who were from Italy, Taiwan and a guy from Philippines but stayed in Singapore, I don't have bad feelings or instincts.
The trip to Oymyakon was about 2 days. We went out from Yakutsk in the morning, and then overnight in one of the towns. And then the next morning we proceed to Oymyakon. There were multiple stops in between. If you are keen to read in detailed, go to this page where I explained how the trip went by.
In this specific blog, I decided to give some tips if you are traveling solo. Before you leave for Oymyakon, your travel agent will advised you to bring only your things that are needed when in Oymyakon. You have to travel light. Your luggage will be left in Yakutsk motel or hotel in a place where the staff will take care of it. So bring another small bag with you or your backpack to pack your stuffs
What should you bring to Oymyakon?
