Again a post about the deepest lake in the world - Baikal Lake. And now not about its steel garbage, but about its beauty and its mysteriousness.
But before some school info to help to understand the lake's uniqueness. Baikal is the lake of a tectonic origin in the southern part of the Eastern Siberia. The maximal depth is 1 642 meters (about 5 400 feet).
About half a year the lake is icebound. In average the period of freeze-up lasts from 15 January till 1 May. Baikal is navigable only from June till September. The locals as well as many other Russian traditionally call it the Baikal Sea. And it's not a mistake - Baikal deposits of fresh water are more than in the Great Lakes combined.
