About Tour to Olkhon, the biggest island on the Lake, is one of the most inspiring and mystic experiences. It is a special place by its energy, which can not leave anyone indifferent. Just here Shamanka Rock is located, where local shamans still perform their rituals and speak with spirits of the past and buryat people tell legends and srories about all the rocks and hills and you will know the most interesting. Landscape is totally different from other parts of the lake - instead of forest soft-shaped hills and sand dunes look into deep blue water of Baikal.
