In Omyakon the average January temperature is -46C and frostbite is a constant hazard but the region is rich in gold and diamonds - and Russia is now one of the world's leading diamond producers.


Adam Mynott looks at some of the challenges faced by those living there - and finds out what happens to a cup of hot water when thrown in the air at -40C.

In Siberia, the winter temperature can drop to -60C, making it one of the coldest places to live in the world.
