Lake Baikal, Siberia, Russia

Lake Baikal in Siberia is the oldest and deepest lake in the world. It is estimated to be almost 30 million years old and 745 meters deep. WOW! It is also one of the clearest lakes and holds roughly about 20% of the world’s unfrozen surface freshwater. It is also home to over 1,700 species of plants and animals, two thirds of these species are found no where else in the world! Because of all these amazing features Lake Baikal was declared a UNESCO world heritage site. Much like the Great Blue Hole I find Lake Baikal very eerie and mysterious. It has been around for so long and it is so deep, I mean, what really lurks down there…. Guess I’ll have to wait and see!
