Baikal, Lamu, Tengis, and Dalai people: All of them see Lake Baikal as one of the great wonders, and they add “sacred” to its name, struck by its beauty and magnificence; a multitude of legends, traditions, and fairy-tales are connected with the Baikal, all stressing its sacredness and wisdom. This unique world-famous lake—the oldest, deepest, and purest—is situated in Eastern Siberia, about 300 km to the north of the Mongolian border; it contains 20 per cent of the world’s fresh-water supply and forms a gigantic 636 km long basin shaped as a half-moon in a mountainous taiga frame.
Baikal is famous not only for its age and dimensions but as well for its unique diversity of plant and animal life: Three quarters of the 1,400 animal and over 850 plant species populating its water are endemic. There exists even a unique species of seal in the lake—the “nerpa”—, which is remarkable because seal usually lives only in salt water.
