This is How the Bottom of Magnificent Lake Baikal Looks Through 10 Foot Ice


Skaters glided gracefully across the frozen surface of Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest freshwater lake, taking in the breathtaking winter scenery while skating across huge sheets of ice dozens of feet thick. The frozen Siberian lake offers a perfectly clear view of the lake bottom as the frozen ice is as clear as glass in many places. Ice skating from one end to the other takes about 2 weeks! How would you like to skate on this lake of glass?

  • Russian ice divers put up New Year's tree in frozen Lake Baikal

    Nothing seems impossible for a trio of Russian ice swimming enthusiasts who put up an artificial fir tree on the bottom of the world's deepest lake to celebrate the country's holiday. The tree was installed near the shore, at the depth of some 3 meters, after the swimmers cut a hole in the thick ice.

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Sets SUV Speed Record on Ice of Lake Baikal

    As the saying goes, records are meant to be broken. That?s exactly what Jeep had in mind when it shipped its Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to southern Siberia in order to attend the annual Speed Days of the Baikal Ice Motor Sports Festival. Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world and at the same time the largest freshwater lake by volume was the perfect venue for the 707-horsepower monster to stretch its legs thanks to a total length of the course of 12 kilometers (7.45 miles).To achieve the record-breaking attempt, Jeep says ?unnecessary items were removed? from the vehicle to shave off weight, while the fuel level was just enough to complete the high-speed run. Speaking of speed, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk averaged an impressive speed of 257 kph (160 mph) over 1 kilometer (0.62 miles) with a rolling start and averaged in excess of 100 kph (62 mph) from a standing start.

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d?avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu?en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l?arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. ?Le train est plein?, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
