Information:

Bolshoye (Big) Goloustnoye settlement is probably one of the most peaceful and quiet places of Lake Baikal. It is perfect both for relaxing and being active on your holidays. It seems like time here is passing slower than usually: horses are peacefully grazing on the wide valley with a small river running through it; birds are smoothly circling in light flows of Baikal wind, sonorous crystal water pleasant murmurs…

But long time ago (in the XVIIth century) this place was teeming with life because the village was the main settlement on the trade route between Russia and China! This is where the merchant ships were crossing the lake toward the delta of Selenga river.

Nowadays it is a modest settlement where guests and tourists can stay in comfortable estates and tourist camps are located on the slopes of the west coast of Baikal lake.

One of the biggest advantages for spending a holiday in this place is an easy access to the village. You can reach Goloustnoye settlement by car only in 2 hours.

If you decide to spend a holiday in Bolshoye Goloustnoye settlement, you’ll be struck by the pristine beauty of untouched nature, amazing landscapes of the wide valley of Goloustnaya river and the unforgettable sound of Siberian forest...

Around the village you will see the primeval forest which is the habitat of wild animals. The unique settlement of Bolshoye Goloustnoye is an ideal place for animal photography. We will be happy to organize a bear or a deer photo-hunting for you in the wildlife habitat. Let’s go for the new impressions and amazing photos!

Visiting Okhotnichya (Hunting) Cave!

One of the most impressive caves of Baikal region is Okhotnichya cave, located not far from Bolshoye Goloustnoye settlement. The cave is hidden from curious passers behind a small pass in the valley of Elovaya river. Not everyone knows the way to the cave, not everyone is ready to go 7 km by car and 5 km by foot, but those who still gather enough courage to go there - will not regret! You will be struck by the enchanting beauty of the cave and its dimensions. The height of the vault reaches 75 meters! Branched cave system (about 6 km) can go up to the surface or go down to the depth. The visitors can play with their imagination just by looking at the cave walls decorated with curious speleothem. In some places of the cave you can find peacefully slumbering bats, shaped in little gray lumps and hanging from the cave ceiling. Recently discovered Okhotnichya cave (2006) rightfully won the title of the most beautiful cave of Baikal region!
