Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It was in mid-August. Me, my friend, my son-in-law and my fifteen-year-old grandson.
    We started in the Bobrovy Log (Beaver's Wash) funpark, took a chairlift and hiked up in the hills. Unfortunately, we were somewhat pressed for time that day so it was impossible to go to Stolby (world-famous butts) but that national park offers excellent hikes, views and panoramas for anyone with any time-table and in any season! Just try to avoid holidays and days-off - might be crowdy.
    Awesome environment, squirrels and chipmunks abound (take some seeds with you, better pine nuts), well-maintained paths, good navigation (in Russian!). Places to grab a bite are scarce though (I mean, really scarce) so a lunch box - and water - would be a good idea. Mosquitos are not a problem but think about ticks (in summer - ha-ha!).

    In 2019, my family and I went to Lake Baikal. This is a very unusual lake. It is the deepest lake on the planet. The water there is specularly clean. Very beautiful landscapes. This lake is unusual, when you come to it, you have a big surge of sensations of something unthinkable. Now I will talk about the lake. Baikal is located in the center of Asia, in Russia, on the border of the Irkutsk region and the Republic of Buryatia. The lake stretches from North to South-West for 636 km in the form of a giant Crescent. The width of lake Baikal ranges from 25 to 80 km .... By the area of the water mirror, lake Baikal is the sixth largest lake in the world. 336 permanent rivers and streams flow into lake Baikal, while half of the volume of water entering the lake is brought by Selenga. It flows out of lake Baikal only one river The question of the age of lake Baikal should be considered open. Usually in the literature, a figure of 20-25 million years is given. However, the use of various methods for determining the age gives values from 20-30 million to several tens of thousands of years. But if we assume that the traditional point of view is correct, then Baikal can be considered the oldest lake on Earth. I will remember this place for life.In 2014, my family and I went to Lake Baikal. This is a very unusual lake. It is the deepest lake on the planet. The water there is specularly clean.

    Actually, "ionesee" means "big water" in Evenki language (Evenks are one of numerous indigenous ethnoses living in Siberia). We first saw it in mid-August in Krasnoyarsk but then we drove five hundred kilometers down to Khakassia (an autonomous republic in Siberia), then another five hundred further down to Tuva (also an autonomous republic, not far from Mongolia) and everywhere Yenisey (this is the correct way to spell it!) was starkly different.
    Calm and comparatively warm in Krasnoyarsk due to water flowing through hot turbines of the Sayno-Shushenskaya dam, Yenisey is rampant by its foot, placid in Khakassia and absolutely tranquil in Tuva's capital Kyzyl where it actually starts.
    Thus, Krasnoyarsk is not at all the place to feel its might. Go to that dam instead. You'll be awestruck and overwhelmed by the river's thrust. Never hesitate to drive these five hundred plus kilometers - it's a once-in-your-lifetime opportunity!

    It is a must-stop for everyone coming to Olkhon and a sacred place for local Buryats. That was the case for centuries until Soviet communists exterminated or incarcerated virtually all local shamans. When a boy I visited the place and I remember it just like a beautiful rock - no voodoo stuff, no posts decorated with ribbons. It was only in 1981 that the aithorities gave it a status of "natural sightseeing" but traditions of the past started to return much later, after the collapse of the communist power.
    It is a magical place - a gorgeous view, sandy beaches, deep blue waters of Baikal. It contains 19% of the world's sweet water reserves - can you imagine? Try to find a secluded place (not easy in high season) and just think of what was here, say, 500 years ago. Admire it at sunset or better at sunrise - no chirping tourists! And please - behave yourself. No climbing on Shamanka rock, no shouting, no alcohol, no littering. Local spirits shall not forgive you. (In the times passed women even were not allowed there.)

    I must say that Mayor Sergey Eryomin did a fantastic job of making this space available for the whole family to enjoy. I was honored to be there at their Social festival, but it's open to all and truly a fun for the entire family place. Much to do and see.

    Cerkovka means "a little church" in Russian. Origin of the name will be obvious if you look at it - a real dome. Russians love various legends and many even seem to believe them. As far as that rock is concerned, people say there once was a sterile man who touched it and immediately became prolific as a rabbit. Made his girlfriends happy!
    As to us, we visited it on a sunny August day (not to touch it!). The sky was cloudless but still an obvious haze was noticeable - Yakutian forest fires reached even Altai. About 3,000 kilometers' distance! In any case, though, it did not impede us taking pictures and filming so we used our time quite fruitfully.
    One can really grab a bite there, buy some souvenirs and get chummy with chipmunks and nuthatches. The latter are on alert while the former are rather bold (or brazen?).
    Panorama opening from the top is awestriking, really. Do also mind that slopes of the mountain are not very steep so in summer one can easily take a walk down. In rush hours that would be an even more effective alternative due to an endless queue to the cableway.

    The park is great, a lot of trees, well maintained. But the best part is the views of the river from the bank. It's really outstanding!

    Better start your trip to Katu-Yaryk Passage from Aktash (788 km of R-256 "Chuysky Trakt" from Novosibirsk). Make your tank full of gas in Aktash before you start. Be ready to overcome then about 50 km (depends on season and weather) of highly-likely off-road part of road - sandy mostly:). The way from Aktash to Katu-Yaryk passage is about 100 km and could last 2-2,5 hours one way. And it's worth it. Beautiful site of Chulyshman Valley, and the Passage as itself. If you'll wish to pass your way down to the valley (or even up then) make your mind about 4WD option of the transport - it would be good idea.

    Thus, you must have guts to go there. First, the road is winding and bumpy, full of potholes. A silver lining though seems to be that they at last seriously started to build a new, modern one. Roaring and puffing road construction machines rape the terrain all the way to the lake so maybe next year there would be something more bearable.
    Artybash village, a "capital" of Teletskoye lake, is even more primitive. I'd even dare claim it looks shocking for western eyes. Basic wooden constructions they call restaurants, hotels, etc. are a far cry from modern tourist facilities so the village must be used as a point of departure/arrival only (I mean boat trips).
    On the other hand, the lake as such is really beautiful. Rent a small motor boat just for yourself for a day, skip bigger ships and you'll enjoy it. Your "captain" will show you all the best places, do what you want, anchor where you'd ask him at (excluding points where it is prohibited by law), will not leave you hungry and will generally make you happy (not sure if he would speak English, however). And yes - board the boat as early as possible to avoid crowds.
    So, go ahead but bear in mind that it is a full day undertaking.

    Great place to visit. The show is 25-30 mins, so a perfect place to visit and doesn't take too much of our time.
    The show itself was very well thought and prepared.
    Really enjoyed it

    A really great hike with some great views.
    Though you should be physically prepared for it as it is not such an easy hike, taking up to approximately 4-5 hours to go up in a decent pace.
    One more thing to keep in mind is that you should go in a good weather, since it can be very slippery and muddy during a rainy day.

    great view over the lake. If you are a photographer you should come before the sunset. You have to take the ski cable up about 15 minutes ( wear warm clothes because it might be freezing) from there 10-15 minutes walk . near the rock shamans Holly place.
