Road of bones in Kolyma, Russia

he most hardcore highway, you have ever seen, M56 Kolyma Highway,
located in far east part of Russia. It connects Magadan and Yakutsk. The
length of the original road via Tomtor is about 1,900 kilometers (1,200
mi).
The road was in a state of disrepair and is not traversable by
standard road vehicles because of washed-out bridges and sections of
road reclaimed by streams. During winter, frozen water actually helps
river crossings.
The name "Road of bones" comes from thousands of people, who died during the creation of the route.
The
area is extremely cold during the winter. Two towns by the highway,
Tomtor and Oymyakon, both claim the coldest inhabited place on earth
(often referred to as -71.2°C, but might be -67.7°C) outside Antarctica.
The average temperature in Oymyakon in January is -46°C.
