In the process of "becoming" ice on Lake Baikal, hummocks are often formed. The bright sun "clears" them of snow and it becomes clear how pure the water is in Baikal
If during the freeze-up a strong wind blows, it can create entire fields of hummocks
The thickness of ice can reach up to one and a half meters. This makes a special impression on those who decide to drill a hole in it.
Especially reckless tractor drivers are not afraid to drive their mighty cars onto the ice
It must be remembered that the Baikal ice is mobile. The mighty power of Lake Baikal can, in a few minutes, cut a huge crack in the ice
Shades of Baikal ice can be very different - from the blue off the coast ...
... and almost white in places where underground gases escape ...
... and almost black in May
Spring ice does not look like a monolithic block. Rather, it resembles a bundle of icicles, so it easily succumbs to pressure (in general, it's better not to jump on spring ice). But on it there are absolutely amazing "flowers"
