Freezing For Fitness Under A Kyrgyz Waterfall

Friends Rysbek Jakypov and Nurbek Ismailov like to shower under an icy waterfall in Kyzyl-Bel, Kygyzstan, near the city of Naryn. Temperatures hit -20 degrees Celsius. They say the freezing mineral waters are good for stamina and that a diet of hot tea and horse meat helps protect against the cold.
