On March 7, 2019 in Lake Baikal, Siberia, Russia, a man bring his van on to a huge frozen lake and parks it in the middle. He proceeds to get out, walk around and film the ice. His explanation of the lake was this.
“Lake Baikal in Siberia Russia is frozen for 5-6 months every year. In the middle of winter time, we could walk and cars could ride on the surface of the lake. The ice of this frozen lake is so clear, we could even see the bubbles and other things inside this lake.”
It seems like the lake freezes up and becomes fairly thick. In the video, the guy is walking pretty lightly but it’s still sketchy due to the fact that he’s in the middle of the lake! Especially having his big minivan parked there, i would not trust it! On another note, it is still nice to see underneath the lake with all the layers and things frozen deep under.
It’s so clear that we can see everything, even the water bubbles.
