Only ten minutes walking from center of Khuzhir. This place looks awesome. Here is a Beach and it’s nice place for swimming in very cold Baykal.

Tour drivers usually include this stop and others during the several hours drive to Cape Khoboy. We saw this during a heavy rain and was a lovely stop along the route.

It was cold but saw a beautiful sunset over the rock. The scenery jaw dropping and no photos can do it justice.

This is a very magical and spiritual place for the Buryat people and their shaman. It tends to get a bit crowded in August but it is a lovely place to watch the sunset and take in the vastness of Lake Baikal

Quite a magical place. Very calm. Surrounded by grandiose Baikal with turquoise water. Sacred cows licking sweets or salt off the rocks. Bluest ribbons on wooden posts. All adds some magical aspects to this special place. I would strongly reccomend.

A beautiful view of Baikal from Olkhon island. Very peaceful and contemplative - for walks along the shore, climbing down to pebbled beaches, sitting on the rocks and enjoying the moment. Splendid sunsets.

Shamanka rock is the main attraction on Baikal Lake. The largest resort is in this area. All the hotels are nearby. People will take minibus to the Baikal Lake in Winter to see the ice crack. The most peak season for tourist is in January...More

Добрый день! Можете спокойно посетить остров Ольхон, там живут очень гостеприимные люди. Я думаю вы останетесь очень довольны своим путешествием.
