The Enigmatic Beauty of Lake Baikal In WinterEnigmas behind the Baikal ice formations have provoked scientific interest.
Baikal is the deepest and the cleanest lake on Earth.
In winter, its ice formation into different patterns in different parts of the lake is a result of water freezing layer by layer.
Ice can reach a thickness of 1.5m to 2m and withstand a load of about 15 tons.
The ice of Baikal is so transparent that you can see everything right to the bottom - fish, green stones, plants and bluish gulf.
The water in the lake is exceptionally clear allowing you to see various objects up to a depth of 40 meters.
Bubbles in the ice is the result of methane produced by algae.
