To be on the edge of reality, dive into the secrets of an ancient people, to experience a real delight, and freeze from a primitive fear – can you imagine it all in one trip?
Yes, It’s possible!
We invite you to the winter Baikal, which will meet us with the frosty air and a smell of the famous dish, smoked omul. We will see a universe of natural ice figures and unimaginable paintings from bubbles, cracks and transparent ice.
We will visit a mysterious cave on the Shamanka cliff, which instills mystical horror in the souls of the local people.
We will get acquainted with the Buryat culture and will try delicious dishes of their cuisine – Buuz and fresh Ukha.
We will make a wish near the Wishing Tree and will ride in the car right on the ice of Baikal.
We will try to learn the secrets of the Mighty Lake and will overcome the fear of mystical endless expanse of this unforgettable place.
Are you really want to miss that chance?
Lake Baikal is the deepest lake on the planet, the largest natural reservoir of fresh water located in eastern Siberia. The lake stretches from north-east to south-west by 620 km in the form of a giant crescent. The width of the lake ranges from 24 to 79 km.
In the winter beauty of the Baikal isn’t worse than the summer, and maybe even better. When water surface of the lake covers with thick ice shell, it will be even more opportunities to see the beauty of the Baikal nature. The layers of clear dark ice one meter thick, ice caves with hanging icicles, winter Baikal bird’s-eye view — all that is waiting for you in this journey.
