Lake Baikal, located in southern Siberia, Russia, is not only the oldest lake in the world (approximately 25 million years old) but also the deepest on earth (1680 m deep) and the largest freshwater lake from all across Asia (636 km long and 80 km wide).
Located in the subtropical zone, its waters tend to freeze at different levels during the winter, with the ice being able to support the weight of up to 15 tons and present different patterns of ‘drawings’ caused by air bubbles emanating from the depths and cracks that occur naturally in its crystal clear waters. A stunning beauty registered by the lenses of Russian photographer Kristina Makeeva (previously featured), who spent three days in that location to produce this magnificent series.
Baikal is a stunningly beautiful place. I still, having traveled to many countries, consider it one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The religion of those places is Shamanism. So, it is felt. In addition to the beauty there you feel the energy. And I really hope that this time my tired mind will be filled with this pure energy. At the same time, we are quite cynical people, but Baikal forced us to reconsider our views on various spiritual processes. Perhaps it is still pure air, water and natural products that are to blame. Residents of megacities often lack banal oxygen.Kristina Makeeva
