Breakfast. Start of jeep tour.
After the breakfast we will start our tour to the most northern point of Olkhon by UAZ, Russian military jeep. We will explore the northern part of Baikal national park.
Kharantsy cape and village
We pass through the village where the airport served local flights to and from Irkutsk. The airport is still maintained by one family, which took this mission since middle of 20th century. "Kharantsy" means "watcher", that is why we see great views from the cape.
We see beautiful views from sandy beach and the old wooden pier made for fish factory, a part of Stalin times political prison (GULAG).
Cape Sagan-Khushun and Rock of Three Brothers
This is one the most beautiful spots of the Northern Baikal, the cape is formed from light-color marble, covered by lichens. The legend says that three brothers were turned into the rock by their father. This is the widest part of Lake Baikal, about 80 km.
Cape Khoboy (Tusk), famous place of the Power.
One of the most beautiful places of the lake, where local people met sunsets and thanked local spirits for their kindness and justice. Despite Baikal is the widest here, you can see another shore and specially the hilly Saint Nose peninsula if the weather allows. There is also Deva (Girl) Rock, which was (by the legend) turned into the rock to avoid evil thoughts to her relatives. We have a lunch here, it is a traditional fire cooked omul fisherman's soup. You can see Sacred Nose peninsula from here, and also if lucky, Baikal seals during summer. After lunch we head to Irkutsk.
