Today we come to the famous Island of Olkhon, whichis called the "heart" of Lake Baikal. We landat Cape Sagan-Khushun, change to a colorful local UAZ – the only minivan that never fails in the absence of asphalt, and go to the northern extremity of Olkhon - Cape Khoboy.
The indigenous residents of the Baikal Region are the Buryats; today we will touch some of their culture. Today we delight beautiful landscapes, as well as local Buryat legends. We visit Shamanka Rock – one of the nine shrines of Asia and the most famous Baikal landmark.
Our ship waits for us in the village of Khuzhir.
Later we depart to Ogoi Island and visit the Buddhist Stupa of Enlightenment-a modern attraction, however with an interesting story.
Today we sail 73 km along Lake Baikal and go 50 km across Olkhon Island !
