Lake Baikal, Russia Lake Baikal is a split lake that is located in the south of the Russian area of Siberia. Accompanying an area of 12,248 square miles, it has a distance of 1,642 meters, and it also has an area of 395.2 miles. I think that Lake Baikal is one of the greatest and also the cavernous lakes in the entire world. It is also one of the most primeval lakes in the world. Nevertheless, Lake Baikal is mostly well-known for being the world’s deepest freshwater lake. It can carry 20 percent of the world’s icy freshwater supplies. There are amidst 1,500 and 1,800 animal classes at various deepness, and also has hundreds upon hundreds of plant species that are either inhabiting on or close to the surface. I also think that Lake Baikal is really an occupied place, and also not just with travelers. The precipitous mountains brim the shore in countless places, their slants are also falling clearly to the lake’s surface. Olkhon Island, that is close to the middle of the lake, is the biggest of Baikal’s 27 islands. Near this island is also the lake’s cavernous point; with an estimate of 5,371 ft. and also 1,637 m. is enormous depth of any lakes in the world. Like the numerous streams that are pouring into the Lake Baikal and from the neighboring uplands and the biggest is the Selenga, and in which it starts in Mongolia.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
