Into the deep
Hi How it Works, I’ve been reading your magazine for a while now and love the environment section, but I’ve been wondering, what’s the deepest lake in the world?
Well, Matthew, according to the Guinness World Records, the world’s deepest lake is Lake Baikal in southeastern Siberia, Russia. It is 636 kilometres long, 48 kilometres wide and the lake’s Olkhon Crevice reaches depths of 1,637 metres.

the depth of lake Baikal was measured in 1974 by the Hydrographic Service of the Soviet pacific navy
