As soon as the temperature hits single figures, most of us feel like we’re in the North Pole.

In Oymyakon, Siberia, it is so cold that eyelashes freeze and temperatures can plunge to -62°C (-80°F).

The small Siberian village, which is known as the coldest human settlement in the world, reaches these insane temperatures annually.

Photographer Amos Chapple experienced the freeze three years ago.

He told “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.”

The record low for Oymyakon was set in 1933. It was a temperate of -67.7°C (?89.9°F), the lowest ever in the Northern hemisphere.

Hope they wrapped up!
