Did you know that what is dubbed as the world's loneliest toilet can be found hanging about 8,500 above sea level on a cliff in Siberia? This one extreme restroom is what's used by the weather station employees who stay in the Altai Mountains.

According to New York Daily News, the working group is composed of five staff assigned at this post and the toilet hanging on the cliff is their only area to relieve themselves when nature calls. They are visited at the Kara-Tyurek weather station by a messenger who is to gather their weather data and deliver their food, water and other basic supplies from a chopper. They are also given a regular supply of wood since there are no trees around them.

MSN Now mentioned that it took several years before the weather station employees overcame their fear of using the world's loneliest toilet. The Interfax News Agency recognized the toilet too as "the most unromantic place possible."
