Watch Climb of Coldest Peak in Northern Hemisphere

Sakha is a region of highs, lows and little else. It’s home to Pik Pobeda, the highest mountain in Siberia, and where the lowest temperature in the Northern Hemisphere was recorded – a deadly -71.3C.

It’s also the desolate and hostile landscape in which alpinists Tamara Lunger and Simone Moro found themselves in February 2018, preparing to attempt the first ever winter ascent of this 3,003-metre frozen monolith.

Pobeda chronicles their record-setting expedition in an environment that makes rescue impossible.
