When Lake Baikal Freezes, It Creates Gorgeous Ice Formations

January 28, 2015

Lake Baikal, located in the southern part of eastern Siberia in Russia, is an incredible place that one can only hope to visit at least once in their lifetime. It's not just the oldest freshwater lake on Earth, it's also one of the largest and deepest lakes holding one-fifth of the world's freshwater.

In some areas, the ice is up to 4 feet thick.
