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

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.

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.

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 the face of the wise father Baikal on the slopes of Primorskii Ridge, fascinating ice caves and hummocks, admire the “Three Brothers” Rock, whose silhouettes were immortalized in stone by the mighty and fair father, see the edge of the Earth, make a wish at the Love Stone, learn a lot about the lake and its fascinating legends, get acquainted with traditions and customs of the local inhabitants. The impressions will be unforgettable!

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!

Байкал. Это, наверное, единственная мировая достопримечательность в России, которая еще осталась не загажена (простите) плодами цивилизации. Давно мечтала побывать и вот - свершилось. Цена, конечно, немалая, но не пожалела. Впечатлений - море. Вода озера - это нечто, нигде нет такой прозрачной глубины, видно каждый камешек на дне. Особенно впечатлил остров Ольхон. Вообще я впервые на острове. Ну, конечно, сувениры, кафе и прочее, как всегда - на долгую память. Понравилась экскурсия в музей - очень широкий диапазон экспонатов, от самой древности и до советских времен. Осень на Байкале настолько великолепена очарованием красок и спокойствием тишины, что отдых в этот период на берегах озера дает возможность полностью отрешиться от мирских забот и получить заряд энергии и позитива от осенних пейзажей и теплого общения в кругу близких.

Тур брали вдвоем с мужем, остались под впечатлением, все прекрасно - природа просто обалденная, получились очень красивые фотографии. Одно только скажу сразу- с маленькими детьми будет трудновато, так как программа очень активная и насыщенная. Особенно нам запомнилась нерпа, красивое животное, и было очень классно понаблюдать за ним в дикой природе.

Брали этот тур с мужем в начале июня- воспоминания потрясающие! Очень насыщенная и активная программа, подойдет только для тех, кто не привык сидеть на одном месте. Мы оплатили размещение уровня комфорт (гостиницы и турбазы с туалетом и душем в номере).
Мы специально выбирали тур, который бы в себя включал и экскурсию по Иркутску, и осмотр термальных источников, и посещение нескольких музеев. Особенно впечатлил мыс Хобой- просто захватывает дух от таких видов. Вообще весь тур любовались красотой местной природы- никогда не устанешь от вида водопадов, гор и самого озера Байкал.
