Lake Baikal | Russia

Lake Baikal is an immense, ancient lake in the mountainous region of Russia’s Eastern Siberia, north of the Mongolian border.

Lake Baikal is considered the biggest and deepest lake in the world. An extensive network of hiking paths, called the Great Baikal Trail, surround the lake.

The small village of Listvyanka, on Lake Baikal’s western shore, is a popular gateway for wildlife-viewing tours in the summer months and for ice-skating and dog sledding in the winter.
