People and landscape at Russia's frozen Lake Baikal

An orthdox Christian pilgram group, led by Father Evgeny, walks from Ust-Barguzin, a port town along the shore at Russia's Lake Baikal, southward in a clockwise journey. Crowned the "Jewel of Siberia", Baikal is the world's deepest lake, and the biggest lake by volume, holding 20% of the world's fresh water. In the winter, the lake 31,722 square meter surface is entirely frozen with ice averaging 2 meters thick.
