Enjoy the UNESCO World Heritage Water Body Lake Baikal

Posted On May 13, 2013 

Lake Baikal is one of the most beautiful water bodies in the eastern part of Siberia in Russia. This is the deepest and the biggest freshwater lake in the entire world and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are beautiful ranges in the Baikal Valley and you have the Baikal Mountains surrounding the entire area. The River Angara is the only outflow water body of this lake. Tourists come from across the world just to enjoy the beautiful scenery, the sights of the valleys and the rivers and the majestic ranges.

Not all the lakes in the world are as famous as the Lake Baikal, and the simple travel delights here are what make it a favoured spot. Lakes are temporary water bodies, and in the end dry up with the changing geological conditions. Thus, it is rightly a UNESCO World Heritage site so that it is preserved well and it is protected from getting dried up.

Tours here include visits to the Ikhon Island, which is the largest island here. It is a wonderful attraction in Siberian tours and is amazingly beautiful with a diverse landscape and a vibrant culture.
