Irkutsk today is a large administrative, commercial, cultural and scientific center of Eastern Siberia, in which about seven hundred thousand people live. The city has a high scientific, technical and industrial potential, developed infrastructure and is included in the number of populated places with preservation of the historical planning and development.

After getting acquainted with Irkutsk, we will offer you a trip to the “gates of Baikal” - to the village of Listvyanka. Just 65 km from Irkutsk, on the shores of the sacred Lake Baikal, the five-kilometer strip stretches Listvyanka. In 1645, a small Cossack detachment led by centurion Ivan Galkin, having overcome a long waterway, reached the source of the Angara. The first Siberian settlers erected hunting huts here and began making forays into the waters of the Baikal on their planks and plaques. With the development of shipping through the Larch (this name was originally given to the settlement due to a large number of larches growing in its vicinity), supplies of fur, fish, meat, salt, tea went. Therefore, it was called not only the “Gate of Baikal”, but also the “Gate to Asia”. Today Listvyanka is one of the most visited and popular zones on the shores of the famous lake and the starting point for most travelers from all over the world. From here begin as short water walks on the Larch Bay, as well as multi-day cruises on the lake, trips on the Circum-Baikal railway, there are hotel complexes, mini-hotels, a private residential complex, various tourist attractions, restaurants and cafes, fish markets and souvenir shops.

Architectural-ethnographic museum "Taltsy" is a unique collection of historical, architectural and ethnographic monuments of the XVII-XIX centuries. The museum is located on the picturesque bank of the Angara River in the Taltsy tract, at the 47th kilometer of the Baikal highway. Here, four historical and cultural zones of the Baikal region are retrospectively recreated: Russian, Buryat, Evenki, and Tofalar.

The source of the Angara and the observation deck at the Shaman-stone. The source of the Angara River is the widest and largest in the world (863 m). Many beautiful legends and legends are associated with this place, and the stone itself is considered one of the symbols of Baikal, which the locals still endow with miraculous power.

The current St. Nicholas Church. Almost the only ancient architectural monument of Listvyanka of the mid-nineteenth century.

Museum of Baikal. Today, the exposition is based on Baikal fish, birds and animals, samples of sediments and Baikal minerals, models, various exhibits found during scientific field expeditions. Since June 2004, the museum has a truly unique structure - a limnological aquarium, which provides visitors with the opportunity to look into the underwater world of Baikal and see lively omul, grayling, bream, sturgeon, Lenkov, burbin, carp, catfish, pike and crucian carpas, also crustaceans, sponges and mollusks. All 11 aquariums are designed in such a way that you can carefully consider the underwater inhabitants of Baikal, including the seals, for which almost ideal conditions are created.

The wingspan is about 7 meters, the weight is about 4 tons, and the height of the stele is 9 meters. Another interesting monument is installed on the observation deck of the Kurkutsky Bay. Here, the Vagabond is perpetuated in bronze - the hero of the Russian folk song "According to the wild steppes of Transbaikalia".

Day 4

Trekking Breakfast at the hostel. Today we will go on a walking tour to the Sarminsky gorge. Sarminskoe gorge is one of the legendary places of Baikal. Sarma - the largest of the rivers (length 42 km), flowing into the Small Sea. The river originates from the northern slopes of the Three-headed loach. For millions of years, the ice stream of the Sarma River has washed out in the Primorsky Range a powerful gorge "Sarminskoe", on both sides of which two rocks rise, creating an unusual, somewhat sinister pattern of the Sarminsky Gate. Here, waddling over the Primorsky ridge with a vast Prilensky Highland, the arctic air rushes into a valley narrowing towards the mouth, which, at the exit to the Baikal basin, forms a kind of natural wind tunnel. The elevation difference of the Prilenskaya high ground and the level of Baikal is more than 500 m. This creates very favorable conditions for the mass of cold air falling from such a height to acquire enormous speeds and destructive power. In ancient times, the approach to the Sarminsky gorge was separated from the rest of the Baikal coast by a wall of stones. The shamans of the ancient tribes inhabiting Baikal separated the sacred territory of the mouth of the Sarma from outside visitors. An excursion to the Sarminsky gorge begins along a picturesque road along the Bay of Mukhor, the warmest and shallowest part of the Strait of the Small Sea. Behind the Khuzhir-Nugai Bay, the vast delta of the Sarma River begins with several low sandy islands, bird nesting sites. A further journey takes place along the road in the valley of the river, along which in 1643 the Cossack Pentecostal Kurbat Ivanov passed. To the eyes of tourists opens a vast space with randomly scattered huge boulders against the background of emerald grass, as if the spirits of the mountains were playing bowls. The whole road is a change of landscapes that are amazing in their picturesque nature: this is a blooming mountain valley, a dense forest thicket, a path leading along a cliff above the river, and, of course, a mountain river with its differences and rapids ...

The route ends with a clearing with huge boulders; here you can relax, admire from a height a rapid stream and listen to the sound of water. The way back will seem to you shorter. Upon return, we are waiting for lunch (picnic). After lunch and rest, we go back.

Meals: breakfast, lunch (picnic), dinner.

Day 7

SUV. Breakfast at the base, departure to Olkhon Island. Having resorted to poetic images, one can say that Baikal is the blue heart of Siberia, and Olkhon is the heart of Baikal. The island is the geographical, historical and sacred center of the lake - the center of ancient legends and historical legends. Located in the central part of Baikal, near the greatest depth mark (1637 m), at an equal distance from the northern and southern extremities of the lake, Olkhon concentrated on its territory the whole diversity of the natural landscapes of the Baikal shores. Even in its form, it resembles the outlines of Baikal. In the myths and legends of the Buryats, Olkhon is called the abode of the terrible spirits of Baikal. At the end of the twentieth century. The shamans of the Republic of Buryatia recognized Olkhon Island as “the main sanctuary, the cult center of all-Mongolian and Central Asian significance, personifying the sacred ancestral homeland of the Buryats”.

We begin our journey from the tourist center, we move to the ferry to about. Olkhon. The Strait of Olkhon Gates is a strait separating the island of Olkhon from the mainland, its length is about 8 km, its width is about 1 km.

Further, as we move to the center of the island, we will see:

Bay of Zagli (Tashkaj lip). The sunniest place in the Irkutsk region. The number of sunny days is 3 times higher than in Irkutsk and is 2,200 hours per year (on the Riga coast - 1,830 hours per year). Precipitation falls the same amount as in the dry steppes of Kazakhstan.

Cape Kobylya head. The shape of the cape resembles the head of a horse drinking water from Baikal. There is a legend about the soldiers of Genghis Khan, who allegedly stopped at a camp on this cape and left behind a huge vat.

Cape Khorgoy. Here is the highest point on Hadai mountain. From it opens a wonderful panorama of the southern part of the island, and on the pass - an obo in honor of the Ezhin - the spirit of the pass. On which it is necessary to stop and throw a coin.

And finally, in front of us, a wonderful view opens up of the “visiting card of Baikal”, one of the nine shrines of Asia - Burkhon Cape or Shamanka Rock. Shamanka was the most revered holy place on Lake Baikal, there have been sacrifices and vows since the appearance of the first shamans. The cave of the cape was considered the seat of Aegina, the owner of the island. Shaman rituals were held in a through-cave in the rock closest to the shore, and later after the Lamaization of the Buryats, there was an altar of the Buddha in it.

To the north of Cape Burkhan, there is a magnificent sandy beach of the Saraisky Bay, which stretches for 3 km between Cape Burkhan and the village of Haranza. Sandy trees hide cozy meadows in the depths of the shore, surrounded by a pine forest.

Next, we move to the north of the island to Cape Khoboy. On our way: the sandy track (miniature of the famous Peschanaya Bay). Constant winds blowing from the sea carry sand from the coast and form sandy deposits, which are called “moving sands”. On the edge of the forest, you can find stilted trees that have risen 30 to 40 cm above the sand on their roots. Their height is much less than that of the famous stilted trees in Peschanaya Bay.

Sagan Khushun - “White Cape” - an extremely picturesque rocky cape with a length of about 1 km. The Sagan-Khushun rocks are included in the list of Baikal nature monuments. This place stands out among the monotonous coastline with spectacular pyramid-shaped rocks known from the local population under the name “Three Brothers”, the legend about which you will learn during the tour.

And here we have the main goal of our journey - Cape Khoboy. Khoboy is a sacred place, a place of power and powerful energy, the most northern cape on the island of Olkhon. In appearance, it resembles a sharp canine (just “canine” and translated “hobby” from Buryat). Cape Khoboy is located near the widest place of Baikal (79.5 km), and only in good weather from it, you can see the opposite shore, the mountainous contour of the Holy Nose Peninsula. On the cape there is a platform where all-Olkhon shaman taylagans are performed.
