The whole Lake Baikal water area. In summer they live everywhere both in the open Baikal and in the coastal zone. The minor part of the population make summer coastal rookeries (the main ones are in the Ushkanyi Islands, the bay of Ayaya, the cape of Pongonye, a part of the shore near the Ledyanaya river – the capes of Sev Kedrovogo, Khoboi). Special aspects of tourism in Baikal. Despite its beauty, first of all Baikal is a powerful element, virgin nature in all its might. As the lake is located in a tectonic fault, a ball earthquake can strike here. But about once in years they can be larger.

Baikal has more endemics than any other lake in the world. Its great age--more than 25 million years--also sets it apart from other freshwater lakes as a living laboratory of evolution. During its life, 30 species ofsculpins (above) have evolved. In comparison, 10,year-old Lake Superior has but four species.   Not only is Baikal the world’s oldest lake, it’s also its deepest, containing 20% of the world’s fresh water (that’s as much as all five Great American Lakes combined). Due to its isolation and absence of minerals, Baikal is also one of the world’s cleanest .

The region of Lake Baikal and surrounding lands lies within the geographical range of such rare bird as the white-tailed eagle. It is the largest predator of Irkutsk Oblast who builds nests, and it is interesting how perfectly it adapted to life near big rivers, lakes, swamps and even sea coasts, becoming a skilled fisher. Lake Baikal forests, in these wild places, preserved in its original form, highly developed hunting territory present for a hunter a large number of game animals and beautiful nature of the lake. That is why, in an interview with Outdoor Life, hunting on lake Baikal was recommended by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin!
