9. How come you can travel here
For those of you who are curious to try traveling there, you can buy tour packages at visityakutia.com. Later, if you go there, you won’t be escorted by a deer, really, hehe. But still use a car, because the distance traveled is quite far, here, thousands of kilometers from the capital of Yakutia.
As for the cost of the tour package itself, it can be quite expensive too, and you can’t go there alone. Well, for 2-3 people, the price is USD 2,600 or around IDR 32.7 million per person. For 4-6 people, the price falls even lower, which is USD 1,680 or around Rp. 21.1 million. It’s expensive, but it’s guaranteed that the experience of living in the coldest place in the world will never be forgotten! hihi.
