Among the splendor of Russian nature, it is impossible not to pay attention to the vast freshwater lakes.
We present to your attention 7 the cleanest lakes of the country.
Location: the South of Eastern Siberia, Irkutsk region.
The first in this list simply can not be called, this unique reservoir. Apart from the fact that it is the deepest (1700 m.), largest (more than 30 thousand sq. m.) the lake, it is also filled with very clean water.
To see the bottom at 20 meters depth do nothing! Its water has an unusual blue color, and even the ice when the lake freezes over, almost completely transparent! The purity of the water remains a mystery to modern scientists, the lake gradually gets covered with sludge, but not Baikal!

For me still it remains a mystery why they didn’t hire the minibus, it would have been cheaper than three separate scooters with drivers, and more comfortable.
