Photographer Amos Chapple journeyed there for interesting pictures about life in the extreme cold temperatures. The frigid conditions gave him challenges, even focusing the lens on his camera was a difficult as opening a pickle jar. He told Weather.com, "I was wearing thin trousers when I first stepped outside into minus 47 C. 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."

Take a look at these photos and see if you think you could endure a few days in this frosty little town.
