Lake Baikal

Horse riding on the ice of Lake Baikal, Siberia. Incredible

 

This lake in Russia you may have heard happens to be the world’s oldest (25 million years, thank you) and deepest (1,700 meters to be exact), isn’t this photograph beautiful.

Referred to as the ‘Galapagos of Russia’, it’s also an UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its plentiful and unique fauna, with some 1,340 species of animals and 570 species of plant.
