About Lake Baikal in winter
Lake Baikal in winter is a true wonder of nature! A truly unique place that can not be compared with anything else: hundreds of kilometers of pure smooth ice covered with cracks like ice cobwebs; hummocks, high mountains above the lake …
No doubt, this is the largest and most beautiful skating rink in the world! Don’t believe? Take a look at photos!
When you step on the ice, through which you can see the bottom at a depth of more than 10 meters, the sensations are just incredible – as if you are going out into outer space! It feels like there is nothing under your feet, you are standing on the ice, and under you is an abyss. All around you hear crash, gurgling, the sounds of strikes of huge ice blocks against each other. Baikal seems to be talking, it wants to tell it’s secrets, to show it’s power and greatness, which it gained over millions of years of life. Baikal is bursting, gurgling, as if its heart is beating, driving blood through the arteries …
Baikal is a place that will not leave anyone indifferent!
