Must see · World heritage site · Water Body · Nature / Park
Surrounded by tall mountains and home to more plant life and animals than any other lake in the world, it's not hard to see why Lake Baikal has earned a title as a World Heritage Site. Formed as an ancient rift valley, the lake is considered the oldest in the world, at 25 million years old. The planet's largest freshwater lake contains about 20 percent of the world's unfrozen fresh water, as well as over 1,700 species of plants and animals. Visit the crystal clear lake for a chance to see some rare species--two-thirds of these plants and animals are found nowhere else in the world. While at 1,642 m (5,387 ft), the lake is deep, it is also one of the clearest. Take a boat tour to learn more about the lake's history. Using our world travel planner, Listvyanka attractions like Lake Baikal can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
