Have you heard of Naga sadhus of Himalayas...?

Naga sadhus are Hindu sages who reside in Himalayas doing meditation and self realization.They are more than 250000 in number.They are all males only.They stay naked and do not wear any clothes.They are naked at the temperature of -30 degrees.They stay cut off from human habitation.I do not know much about what they eat and drink to live.I hear that some of them are more than hundred years old.They keep perfect health and there is no doctor there to attend on them.Once in twelve years they come down from Himalayas to take a dip in the holy waters of river Ganges during Kumbh Mela season.As they stay naked it will be awkard or indecent to allow them to bathe during day time.Therefore the local government makes arrangements to allow them to take dip in the river during night night time from 12 midnight to say 3 AM when others are not allowed to go there where they take bath. You can see it yoursel in youtube.My doubt is as to how they are able to maintain health and live naked under severe cold conditions.Can any one say..
