Lake Baikal: Siberia's Great Lake (Bradt Travel Guide Lake Baikal) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Keen geographers know that Baikal is the worlds largest freshwater lake, and that its home to unique species such as the nerpa freshwater seal. But Lake Baikal is much more than a body of water. Here, two cultures—Russian and Mongol—meet. The area is steeped in shamanism and Buddhism, while the lakes shores are scored by the tracks of the Trans-Siberian Railway. This is the first English-language guide dedicated to Lake Baikal and its surroundings. It provides full coverage of activities, wildlife, culture and religion, as well as practical information on traveling in this diverse corner of Siberia.

Synopsis:

This is the only English-language guide to the Lake Baikal area. It covers the major cities, towns and sites in the area, as well as local culture, wildlife, history, religion and cuisine.
