Lake Baikal the oldest and the deepest in the world is located in the south of the Russian region of Siberia. It is more than 25 million years old. It is the largest freshwater lake in the world, containing roughly 20% of the world's unfrozen surface fresh water. The average temperatures vary from −19 °C (−2 °F) in winter to +14 °C (57 °F) in summer. Baikal is home to more than 1,700 species of plants and animals. Many of them can be found nowhere else in the world. It is also home to Buryat tribes who live on the eastern side of Lake Baikal. Lake Baikal is full of mystery. According to a local legend a huge stone fell from the sky. While it was falling it became red and hot. When it hit the earth, the earth shook. A hole appeared through which a fire blazing was seen. The people began to chant ‘Bai, gal!’ which means ‘Fire, stop!’ in the Buryat language. Earth, stone, and water became to boil and in that mess and noise Lake Baikal was born.”

Water in Lake Baikal has magic power.

If you dip your hands into the lake, you will be rewarded with 1 extra year of life. If you dip your feet into the waters, you are to be rewarded with 2 extra years of life. If you dunk your entire head into the lake, you will be granted 5 extra years of life. And if you completely submerge yourself in the waters of Lake Baikal – hands, feet, head, and body – you will either extend your life by 25 years, or be killed immediately.
