Lake Baikal

Lake Baikal is the deepest (1642 meters deep) and oldest (25 millionen years old) sweet water lake on Earth. It is also the lake with the largest volume of water. From North to South Lake Baikal is approximately 700 kilometers long, but only 40 to 80 kilometers wide.

In winter, the Lake Baikal is coverd with an about a meter thick layer of ice. This huge ice plain, surrounded by the mountain ranges of the Baikal Range, the Bargusin Range and the Sayan Mountains is ideal for a winter cycling tour. Lake Baikal is easily reached by trains, it is pristine and beautiful nature. The ice allows freedom of riding in each direction, and the endless water supply in form of clear, and clean ice ensures our survival.
