КБЖД Крогобайкальский экспресс


Day 9

Early breakfast and check out at 7a.m.

We will visit Arshan village, placed at the foot of the majestic mountain peaks of Sayany. Moving to the south from Baikal along the wide Tunkinskaya valley between two mountain ranges (Sayany and Hamar-Daban) – that looks like a landscape from another reality, where time stops in a flow of bizarre clouds, in an endless flight of a proud eagle, in a sleepy movement of horses on endless expanses of the valley… But we are in a hurry to discover the wonderful world of Baikal gifts.

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 the 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).

Но наше время идёт, и мы спешим открыть для себя удивительный мир байкальских даров.

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.

Meals: breakfast, supper.

Accommodation: camp site

Размещение: палаточный лагерь.


Day 10

Preparation of equipment. Packing.

Safety instructions. The beginning of the first stage of whitewater canoeing which will last for 4 hours.

Saying “goodbye” to civilization. From this point there will be no connection, cafes, shops or roof over your head, and only the rapid flow of the mountain river and miles of forest on the slopes of the picturesque Zirkozunskoye gorge.

Under the guidance of an experienced instructor we will conquer not very complicated, but quite interesting obstacles: the rapid of "Kulik" (K. S. 2), Zubkoganskyye rifts, the "Small Rapid". You will notice how the speed of the river increases when approaching the next obstacle, as in the future will increase your pulse and heartbeat in anticipation of another unexpected turn!

Today is the most interesting day of whitewater canoeing, because ahead is the "Big Rapid" - the most difficult obstacle in the lower flow of the Irkut River. You cannot see the rapid, but you can hear it from far away. With roar and racket the flow sweeps through the huge rocks, forming powerful foamy waves. The passing of the rapid is better to film from the left bank of the river.

After the rapid we will make a stop to spend the night.

Meals: breakfast, lunch, supper.

Accommodation: tent camp.


Day 11

Today we will meet with several new obstacles! After passing "Kosaya Shivera" and "Ox" rapids, we exit will the gorge.

Today another two rapids - "Motskiy" and "Dog Rolls"- will be waiting for us.

Now whitewater canoeing turns into a beach, "rafting" rest. Warm water, sun and red-hot raft sides instead of a sandy beach…

Rested and sunburnt, we will approach Shamanka village – here will be the end of our whitewater canoeing. Because of the river bend the famous Shaman rock opens before our eyes in all its glory.

Drying and packing of the equipment. There is a little festive lunch waiting for us.

Meals: breakfast, lunch, supper.

Accommodation: hotel (Irkutsk)

Всю жизнь мечтала посетить это чудесное место - озеро Байкал. Даже Мальдивы не так манили, как это загадочное озеро. И вот, на день рождения мои родители сделали мне подарок - тур по Байкалу на целых 11 дней. Это были самые лучшие 11 дней в моей жизни. Такой завораживающей красоты я никогда в жизни не видела. У меня остались только самые положительные впечатления! Советую не жалеть денег и обязательно съездить. Тем более, что в тур входит все что нужно для комфортного пребывания. В гостевых домах, где нас размещали, довольно уютно, тепло и чисто. Питание, которое указано в программе - отличное. Очень познавательные и интересные экскурсии. В общем, не пожалеете. Организация на высшем уровне.

Как коренной житель Иркутска сразу скажу - совсем бюджетного отдыха на Байкале не бывает)) НО побывать у священного озера хоть раз в жизни просто НЕОБХОДИМО (в крайнем случае берите кредит, но к батюшке-Байкалу приезжайте обязательно)! Здесь сумасшедшая энергетика. У меня вообще своё "общение" с Байкалом. Порой кажется, что он живой... серьезно, как будто перед вами стоит живое существо (с душой). Даже немного не по себе становится)) Рекомендую обязательно попробовать байкальского Омуля - очень вкусная рыба! Правда сейчас запрет на ловлю (весь 2018-2019 год) и просто так купить его будет оооочень сложно. Вода, к сожалению, хорошо не прогревается (это все-таки Сибирь - лето коротенькое, а глубина у Байкала более 1 км!), но искупаться и омолодиться в водах уникального озера должен каждый, посетивший его))
