I’ve seen my share of interesting toilets and bathrooms from all over the world, thanks to the internet. So far, this takes the cake for the most extreme of them all.

Perched on a cliff 2,600 metres (more than 8,500 feet) above sea level in Siberia, this extreme toilet is not for the faint-hearted. It serves as the only toilet for the five-man staff of the remote weather station at Kara-Tyurek — which began operation in 1939.

This lonely outpost in the Altai Mountains is visited by a helicopter that delivers its food, water, and wood supply every autumn. Once a month, a postman comes to collect weather data.

“The toilet is perhaps the most unromantic place possible, but there are some parts of the world where people have made them something really special,” explains a recent survey made by Interfax news agency in Belarus.
