The deepest lake in the world offers more than just dry facts, it has a lot of lovely, beautiful places to enjoy.
One of these places is situated in the west of Severobaikalsk. On my trip in 2013 we went to a small mountain near the lake with an amazing view to a large bay of Lake Baikal.
The bay is situated near the small village "Baikalskoe"
The following photos were made on the way to "Baikalskoe", where I had a great view to Baikal from the surrounding mountains.
a holy place of Buryations, presents are made to their gods karma, "insurance" of taxi drivers,..(yes, i we had one, drove like crazy but stopped on every altar to leave some gift for the gods);
Between those mountains there a the two small"sljudjanskije" lakes, where local Siberians go to swim and have picnic/open grill.
