Five years ago me and Stas had an opportunity to shoot Baikal from the air. Here we are again. The main goal was to make 360 videos, but of course we could not have ignored the making of a new virtual tour. As a teaser to the 360° video about Baikal we are publishing this 360° timelapse with sunrises and sunsets, filmed from ice caves.
We were lucky: the weather was changing everyday. We walked on clear ice under blue skies in absolute silence and watched the milky way above Olkhon Island. We tried to stay warm in -35 degrees cold and managed to get to the camp through the most harsh snowstorm…
We thank nature for such unforgettable impressions during this short trip.
And here are some facts about Baikal.
Lake Baikal is the deepest lake on the planet, and is one of the most famous landmarks of Russia and the world. In 1996 Lake Baikal was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The surface area of the lake is 31,722 sq. kilometers (12,248 sq. mi), which is comparable to the size of Belgium and Denmark.
