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 following photos were made on the way to "Baikalskoe", where I had a great view to Baikal from the surrounding mountains.
