The coldest village in the world – level 3
Oymyakon is a Russian town that people claim is the coldest inhabited place on Earth. It lies far in Siberia’s Yakutia region where temperatures drop below minus 60.
One man says that it has been like this for years, explaining that when he was in school, it was minus 60 or 61 every year and now it stays like that for at least ten days in a row.
Oymyakon has another record—the Yakutian horse, which is small but perfectly formed and very hardy.
Difficult words: inhabit (where people, animals, or plants live), hardy (strong and healthy).
