The track down to Lake Baikal from the town of Severobaikalsk, on the north west shore of this massive lake, the world's largest, deepest & oldest freshwater lake. And not a snowflake in sight!

"Severobaykalsk (Russian: Северобайка́льск, literally: Northern Baikal) is a town in Buryatia, Russia. It is located on the northern end of Lake Baikal at the mouth of the Tyya River, 440 kilometres (270 mi) northwest of Ulan-Ude and 490 kilometres (300 mi) northeast of Irkutsk. Severobaykalsk has a population of 25,800 (2006 est.), down from an estimated 35,000 before 1990. The town was founded in 1974 as a work settlement for workers constructing the Baikal Amur Mainline and it was granted town status in 1980."
