Kadilnaya Valley

Kadilnaya Valley is located on the western shore of Lake Baikal. This is a protected area; here is a ranger station of the Pribaikalsky National Park. There is a pier at the station where ships and boats can moor, a guest house and a bathhouse on the shore.

The valley and the cape got their name from limestone kilns. A quarry where the limestone was mined and kilns were deserted long ago.

The valley is known for its caves, diverse in shape and length. The most famous of them – "Chapel" - is quite accessible to visitors without special training and skills.
