Deep in Siberia

Deep in Siberia

Siberia's Lake Baikal contains more water than all five US Great Lakes combined, about 20% of the world's total, unfrozen fresh water reserve. It's also the oldest (more than 25 million years) and deepest (depending on what source you use, between 5134 and 5390 feet) lake in the world.
