Lake Baikal is known for three things: as the world’s largest lake at 31.72 square kilometers, the world’s deepest freshwater lake with a depth of 1,642 meters, and the world’s oldest freshwater lake dating back to 25 to 30 million years ago. It’s so big, its freshwater reserves can sustain humans for almost 40 years.
But apart from all these, it also exudes in majestic beauty that attracts thousands of tourists each year. The unspoiled scenery and rich biodiversity are what people come here for. They’d like to see some of its 1085 plant species and 1,550 animal species, and views that won’t leave you wanting.
This lake in Siberia Russia is truly one of the world’s greatest wonders.
