Definitely, the Lake Baikal is a spot of superlatives: it’s the world’s the deepest, the oldest, the clearest lake that contains the largest volume (20% of the total) of the world’s freshwater. Moreover, Baikal is the largest lake in Eurasia, and the deepest lake in the world. That’s why the Lake Baikal is one of the UNESCO’s World Natural Heritages.
Lake Baikal and the region is not only a natural wonder, but it is also a home to various ethnic groups and interesting cultures, such as the Mongol Buryats who are Buddhists and Shamanists at the same time. The amazingly beautiful lake is a "must visit" if you are travelling to Russia, Siberia or taking the Trans-Siberian train journey. The experiences you will get there will be incomparable to anything else.
