6. FReeze FOR Fun

Philippine Tatler - - LIFE | TRAVEL -

The mes­meris­ing ex­panse of lake Baikal is a high­light of the jour­ney, al­low­ing intrepid trav­ellers to take an early morn­ing dip in crys­tal clear wa­ters. lake Baikal freezes over in win­ter, yet in sum­mer, when it’s pos­si­ble to see to a depth of 40 me­tres, the wa­ter tem­per­a­ture hov­ers around 10 de­grees cel­sius, of­fer­ing a rather in­vig­o­rat­ing bathing ex­pe­ri­ence. You’ll be re­warded for your courage with a few medic­i­nal shots of vodka of­fered by the train’s white-gloved stew­ards.
