Siberian Ice Grotto
In sub 30 temperatures even with clear skies and a bright sunny day this part of the world really deserves its title of being extreme and an exotic location. The largest freshwater lake in the world totally freezes over for winter each year creating a inland sea of shimmering glassy ice to explore in wonder and amazement.
Mother nature is nothing short of miraculous in her enchanting ice sculptures that hang from the cave like grottos in the small rocky Islands within Lake Baikal. Blue, white and clear streaks of ice seem to grow down from the caves ceiling to join the floor caging us in the beautiful prison palace. A magical place like no other on earth, a frozen paradise of winter wonder.
