About this tour
Circum-Baikal Railway is a unique monument of the engeneering minds of late XIX century. Used to be the most difficult and the most expensive part of the Transsiberian railway, now it is still the most interesting and beautiful one, became a part of Baikal National Park. Visit to this part of the railway will give you an understanding of architechture and construction solutions of that days, and the feel of unique nature of the lake. Despite of going by the train, we will do trekking at southern part of the railway. First, we will go downhill through the forest, following the river of Angasolka till its connection with the lake. It is a small village there, used to build for railway workers. Then we will turn right and follow the railway tracks till the most southern station of Kultuk, used to be main for the trains. We highly recommend this tour to everybody who is intersted in the Transsiberian railway! // If you need tickets for the train, we can arrange them also, please contact us by e-mail.
