After the breakfast we take our backpacks and go to the top (1A category, easy), which takes about 2-3 hours. From the weather station there is a good trail for 2,5 km, a part of an old road, then trail goes by the edge and comes to the top.
Chersky Peak and Lake Heart
We see Lake Baikal and snow tops of Khamar-Daban and Sayan mountains from here. If we will have some more energy, we can visit Lake Heart. The legend says that the Giant Khaman-Daban lived alone till old age and wanted to find a wife. Soon he found a beautiful but greedy woman, daugher of The Forest Host of Mangi. They married, but she wanted more, so she found Baikal, and went to his harem, left Khamar-Daban alone. The old giant did not overcome that, and took his heart from his chest, that made a crater, when felt to the ground, and tears of the uphappy giant became the water in the lake.
