Lake Baikal, Siberian District

4.8
Surrounded by tall mountains and home to more plant life and animals than any other lake in the world, it's not hard to see why Lake Baikal has earned a title as a World Heritage Site. Formed as an ancient rift valley, the lake is considered the oldest in the world, at 25 million years old. The planet's largest freshwater lake contains about 20 percent of the world's unfrozen fresh water, as well as over 1,700 species of plants and animals. Visit the crystal clear lake for a chance to see some rare species--two-thirds of these plants and animals are found nowhere else in the world. While at 1,642 m (5,387 ft), the lake is deep, it is also one of the clearest. Take a boat tour to learn more about the lake's history.

    There is no person who would not know about this Lake. It is beautiful at any time, whether it's a day, morning, evening, winter, summer, fall, spring. Sandy beaches is on the eastern side of the Lake from the Buryatia. The service is not confronted because the ride on either the day or with a tent. But the nature of chic. You can get there by car or bus (price from 270 p) from 2 hours and more with photos of Baikal.
