About this book

Keen geographers know that Baikal is the world's largest freshwater lake and that it's 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 lake's 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 travelling in this diverse corner of Siberia.

Media reviews

"Even if you're not planning a trip to Lake Baikal this guidebook is a nice read."
- Adventure Travel

"Bradt's Lake Baikal also begs greater attention for its subject: the world's deepest lake is normally seen only as a stopover on the Trans-Siberian. Linger, though, for shamanist rituals, wild hiking and – juding from the 'Don't Miss' photo section – some gloriously ugly examples of Soviet aprtment block architecture."
