In the heart of Siberia, Lake Baikal is one of the biggest lakes in the world. It contains 20% of the world’s fresh water and is nicknamed “the great sacred sea” by Russian people. Its water is extremely pure, thanks to the “goupki”, a little animal that filters water. Lake Baikal is frozen half of the year, but nevertheless has a great biodiversity.
Extract from the documentary: “The Secret Life of Lakes - Lake Baikal, Ice and Water”

I remember waking up at 6.30am on the Trans Siberian (from Moscow) and looked out the window and saw the most beautiful icy lake, Baikal. The train snakes along the south end of the lake, right up against the edge! And then on the other side of the train, was the most gorgeous snow capped Tunkinskiy mountains. I told myself I would never ever forget this moment! Once in a lifetime.

I like these documentaries of Russia that remind the rest of the world that they have amazing vast areas of natural beauty and that they treasure those things too. I think people have a warped sense of russian attitudes, as if it's not a forward thinking civilized country full of diversity of cultures and traditions along with advancements in engineering and scientific achievements. If I was russian, I would be proud. But I'm Scottish, which shares St Andrew as a patron saint.

No doubt why Russian called it the sacred sea, it really is sacred and needs to be preserve.

WONDERFUL! It has been years since I was at/on this lake. A beautiful part of Siberia...thanks to our guide Baata from Mongolia. These people who are exploring the lake are heroes; fantastic; keep up the good work! Best wishes from the land of Oz.

In the school I also read a fascinating piece of science relating to water....that's it's density is highest at 4 degree celsius thus preventing the lake from being frozen completely and killing all the aquatic animals. Incredible design of nature while designing water. There is no greater Engineering than what is available in nature.

Gorgeous place. Always been fascinated by Lake Baikal, but there's NO WAY I'd drive on this or any frozen lake. It must be reasonably safe, but I wouldn't be willing to become the rare exception.
