Itinerary

  • Day 1 - The beginning of the journey. The road to Olkhon

    After arriving in Irkutsk, your Baikal journey will begin. 

    From Irkutsk, you will take a group transfer to the most popular place on Lake Baikal – Olkhon Island. 

    Olkhon is a truly unforgettable and one of the most famous places on Lake Baikal, which is rightfully called a place of strength and especially powerful energy!

    Olkhon is considered a sacred territory, a concentration of shamanism in Central Asia.

    It is visited by pilgrims from all over the world. 

    According to legend, Genghis Khan is buried here. 

    The way to Olkhon will run along a comfortable highway surrounded by beautiful picturesque nature

    Olkhon is an island, and it is reached via a ferry crossing. 

    Your way to the ferry crossing will be along the "Martian Road", as our tourists often say about the Tagheran steppes

    These are kilometers of open space, in some places picturesquely decorated with rocky remnants. 

    Landscapes really transport you to some kind of alien reality!

    Arriving on the island, you will settle in its center – the village of Khuzhir. 

    In the evening, you will have free time, which you can spend exploring the surroundings of the village. 

    Within walking distance is the business card of Lake Baikal, the most popular, recognizable and at the same time energetically strong location – Cape Burkhan, Shamanka rock.

    We recommend a walk there at sunset – the rays of the setting sun color the waters of Lake Baikal with burning shades. 

    This is an incredibly beautiful and pleasant sight and pastime! 

    This is the end of the first day of the trip to Olkhon. 

    You will have a rest before tomorrow's active and full of new impressions day! 

    You will see: Tazheran steppes; ferry crossing; Cape Burkhan, Shamanka rock.

    Included in the price: group transfer; accommodation, dinner.
