What awaits you

Road to the Eastern Sayan Our way from Irkutsk will pass along the road leading to the border with Mongolia: you will find a serpentine road, landscapes of the Khamar-Daban ridge and, finally, a stunning panoramic view of the southern coast of Lake Baikal, the village of Kultuk and Cape Shamansky. And further, around the turn to the Tunkinskaya valley, you will see the sharp peaks of the Eastern Sayan

Nature and flavor of Buryatia On the border of Buryatia, we will stop at the stupa "Dashi Goman" and look at the buildings of the Buddhist complex. Next we will be surrounded by the landscapes of Siberian Switzerland - the Tunkinskaya Valley National Park. You will drive through Buryat villages and expressive steppes, as well as along the banks of the Irkut River, where archaeologists have discovered one of the oldest Stone Age sites

Arshan: immersion in Buryat culture So we got to the original village of Arshan, in the culture and everyday life of which Buddhist, Orthodox and shamanistic traditions are tightly intertwined. You will see the mouth of an extinct volcano and a "stone river" from afar. In a local cafe you will taste buuz, huge pasties and other dishes of the Buryat cuisine. After a hearty lunch, we will take a picturesque path to a mineral water source (arshan) and a waterfall of the Kyngyrgi mountain river. And, of course, we will take a look at the Buryat-Mongolian market with products made from natural wool of a yak, camel, mountain goats, as well as ethnic souvenirs and handicrafts.
