Lake Baikal (Russian: о́зеро Байка́л) is the world's oldest lake, at 30 million years, and deepest, averaging 744.4 metres (2,442 ft).

Located in the south of the Russian region of Siberia, between Irkutsk Oblast to the northwest and the Buryat Republic to the southeast, it is the most voluminous freshwater lake in the world, containing roughly 20% of the world's unfrozen surface fresh water.

At 1,642 metres (5,387 ft), Lake Baikal is the deepest and among the clearest of all lakes in the world. Similar to Lake Tanganyika, Lake Baikal was formed as an ancient rift valley, having the typical long crescent shape with a surface area of 31,722 km2 (12,248 sq mi), less than that of Lake Superior or Lake Victoria. Baikal is home to more than 1,700 species of plants and animals, two thirds of which can be found nowhere else in the world and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. It is also home to Buryat tribes who reside on the eastern side of Lake Baikal, rearing goats, camels, cattle and sheep, where the regional temperatures vary from a minimum of −19 °C (−2 °F) in winter to maximum of 14 °C (57 °F) in summer.

Well, I'm still in love with it. It's January 2019 now and somebody has recently made a video on the frozen Baikal Lake. I'm sure you can find it on youtube.
But I can't help posting a picture of the frozen lake. It's not my picture but I hope nobody minds.
I've never been to the Baikal Lake but I can imagine it just by looking at all the colours and shades of this wonderful variety. The hybridizer was really inspired to give the variety this name!
