New Year's days on Hamar Daban. Baikal sketches

Khamar-Daban is a unique place in Eastern Siberia for New Year holidays! The oldest massif of the planet, stretching from west to east for more than 350 km, forming a mountainous country in the south of Lake Baikal. The daytime temperature, in early January, averages 7-10 degrees below zero, while in Ulan-Ude it reaches minus 35. There is a lot of clean, shining snow and sun, the river does not freeze and therefore everything is in lace, from this everything becomes like in a fairy tale, and this fairy tale is near Lake Baikal.
