When you gotta go, you gotta go: the world’s loneliest toilet is in Siberia

If you’ve ever had to endure a nightly visit to the bathroom while living in a very, very old home, you’d be all too familiar with the outhouse, a toilet that sits, well, outside. But have a thought for whoever is unlucky enough to use this outside toilet in Siberia!

‘Dubbed the most extreme toilet in the world’, this toilet perches on a cliff 2,600 meters above sea level in the Altai Mountains. This lonesome dunny serves five staff members who are working for a remote weather station where they are visited once a month by a postman to collect weather data, while a helicopter supplies food and water each Autumn.
