Rest on Baikal in the winter

Winter Baikal gives tourists ski slopes, snowmobile rides and dog sledding, snowkiting and snowboarding. Winter fishing on Lake Baikal gathers fans of ice fishing for the annual March tournament. Baikal ice is another local phenomenon. Its transparency allows the underwater flora to receive sunlight even in winter.

Winter holidays on Baikal

Fantastic forms of ice, created at the whim of nature, amaze the imagination, and a mystery such as hollow “ice hills” 5-6 meters high still has not been explained by scientists. Another oddity is the giant dark rings (5-7 km) on the ice of Lake Baikal. Satellite photos record their formation in different parts of the lake. The exact mechanism for the appearance of mysterious rings was also not found.

Legends of Lake Baikal

About earthquakes, one of which hid a piece of land under water, forming a new bay, and strange optical phenomena above the surface of the lake. About unidentified objects that regularly appear in the Baikal sky, and three-meter humanoids found in the water column. And also about many phenomena that do not fit into the framework of human understanding, because Baikal is always different, always dissimilar, always new and always incomprehensible.
