Tour program “A Journey to the PLACES of POWER on Lake Baikal”

Day 1

Travel from Irkutsk to Arshan. Accommodation. Lunch at a café (at own expense)

A walk to the drinking water well.

On Buryat land there is a law: if you took something, you should give something else in return. If a person drank the healing water, that was given by the spirits (ezhyn) of the sacred place, he should leave something as a sign of gratitude. As guests, we will perform a gratitude ceremony, treat ezhyn with wine, tie up satin ribbons as a sign of great respect and continue our tour. On the departure day, we will honor the spirits of Arshan, pray for health and longevity, and thank the spirits for a wonderful stay.

Walk around the waterfalls of the Kyngarga River.

The mineral waters of Arshan are good for the gastrointestinal tract. Pure mountain air combined with mineral water has a wonderful healing effect for tired citizens, and a path to the waterfalls of Kyngarga river according to ancient beliefs prolongs human life for as many years, as many times he has been to Arshan.

Meals: supper

Accommodation: Hotel “Irkut” (Arshan)


Day 2

Today we will wake up early in the morning, as there are a lot of interesting places ahead of us!

We will definitely visit Khoymorskiy datsan, located in a quiet and peaceful place near the Arshan village.

A traditional building in oriental style with observance of all the Buddhist rules. As a sign of respect, we will go through the Goroo (circle) clockwise for purification from bad acts that were committed in current and past lives, then spin the prayer cylinders to activate mantras within them, and only after that we will go inside the temple (optional).

Trip to Zhemchug (pearl) village.

We will get a great amount of energy, visiting hot springs and curative mud of Zhemchug village. There is nothing like a nice hot mineral outdoor shower! Methane baths relax, restore our nervous system and have an anti-aging effect. Mineral mud is used for musculoskeletal system treatment. The healing springs of Zhemchug village are recommended as a treatment of male and female diseases.

In the evening, tired but happy, we will return to our hotel in Arshan.

Day 4

This day will be very exiting!

We will visit the Ethnographic Museum in Taltsy village. The unique park-museum under the open air, where you can see a collection of architectural artefacts that were doomed to drown during the construction of numerous hydroelectric stations on the Angara River.

Visit to the Limnological Museum that very clearly presents all the information about the great lake. Exhibitions are devoted to the history of the lake, the specifics of natural landscapes, seismic environment, the animal world of Baikal and the history of its studying.

The aquarium in which tourists can study Baikal fish, crustaceans and even cute and modest nerpas (Baikal seals) is everyone’s favorite exhibition.

At the end of the tour you will virtually dive into pure Baikal water. You will have an opportunity to become real researchers!

Day 6

Excursion "Journey to the edge of the Earth!" (will take all day, lunch included).

Cape Khoboy is the northernmost Cape of Olkhon Island.

When you stand on a rock at the very edge and below there are miles of water, it seems that this is the edge of the Earth, that brave explorers and fearless characters of Russian tales were looking for…

There our path lies. To get to the North of the island, you need to overcome: a steppe landscape with incredible ascents and descents, very similar to a roller coaster, a sandy tract and impassable taiga. During the trip you will be able to see fascinating ice caves and hummocks, admire the “Three Brothers Rock”, whose silhouettes were immortalized in stone by the mighty and fair father. You will also learn a lot about the lake and its fascinating legends and will get acquainted with traditions and customs of the local inhabitants. The impressions from today’s trip will be unforgettable!

Day 7

A water excursion to Maloye More (the Small Sea) (will take all day, lunch included).

We will visit the biggest island on Maloye More called Ogoy, where you can see the Buddhist stupa of enlightenment. As a sign of respect, we will go through the Goroo (circle) clockwise for purification from bad acts that were committed in current and past lives. The Goroo needs to be competed without any thoughts, doubts or anxieties. For full enlightenment and clarification of thoughts, a person needs to go around 108 times!

If you're lucky, you will meet nerpas (Baikal seal) on their favorite "beach rocks".

A small tip: on a water excursion take warm clothes with you: jackets, trousers, comfortable shoes.

After lunch: crossing Lake Baikal from the western to the eastern shore, heading to the “Holy Nose” Peninsula. Travel to Ust-Barguzin settlement*. Accommodation in a guest house. Banya (sauna)!

You will see “Suvinsky posts”, “Inninsky Stone Garden” – a unique phenomenon of nature and pay a special attention to the Barguzin Valley Shrine - Buhe-Shulun Stone ("The stone Bull") and rock paintings and ancient petroglyphs near Dushelan settlement...

По этому туру прошел в июле 2017. Так мне до Байкала почти как до Америки, то старался максимально побывать в разных местах Байкала и на западной и на восточной его части. Тур называется по МЕСТАМ СИЛЫ на Байкале, но теперь я могу сказать, что все места на Байкале и вокруг можно смело называть местами силы :-) . Шикарное место что бы побывать хотя бы раз. Конечно Ольхон в с его поездокой на мыс Хобой это обязательно для программы. Баргузинская долина очень красивая, и там есть что еще посмотреть, но время реально мало и это повод вернуться :-)
Спасибо большое Елизавете и ее команде, которая максимально оперативно организовывала и решала все возникающие организационные вопросы по ходу тура. Видно, что для них это не только работа, но и реальное увлечение.
