About
We are heading to the shore of Baikal in the small Village, almost 300 km. It retains the buildings of Soviet time. In this place there are few tourists, you will feel the beauty of Baikal nature. On the way to Lake Baikal you will see, old wooden yurts left from indigenous peoples. A unique windy forest located at the foot of the local mountains. Of course you will see the most important lake Baikal and Baikal ice. Here it will appear to you in different shapes and forms: Huge ice fragments (taros) striking with their size and bright blue color, clean and flat Baku ice, on which if desired it is possible to skate. If you 're lucky, you 'll see huge snow flakes that, like ice butterflies, have fallen asleep on the surface of the ice. Hear the sounds of Baikal ice, very beautiful, like fabulous musical instruments. This is completely different from trips to Lisvyanka and Olhon Island, crowded with noisy groups of tourists. You will be waiting for a delicious lunch of Russian cuisine!

In this place there are few tourists, which will allow you privacy and feel all the beauty of Baikal nature. Abandoned old wooden yurts left from indigenous peoples. A unique windy forest located at the foot of local mountains, the shape of trees in the forest is altered by the constant strong winds prevailing in these places. Of course you will see the most important lake Baikal and Baikal ice. Only in this place it will appear to you in different shapes and forms: Huge ice fragments (taros) striking with their size and bright blue color, clean and even Baku ice, on which if desired it is possible to skate. You 'll see unique drawings in the thickness of Baikal ice that take different quirky forms. If you are lucky, you will see huge snow flakes that, like ice butterflies, have fallen asleep on the surface of the ice, giving you the impression of a fabulous world. The ice of Lake Baikal is constantly breathing, it is accompanied by very beautiful, loud sounds of similar music fabulous musical instruments.
