olkhon island
about the island
There are two versions regarding the origin of the name of the island, both stem from the language of the Buryats, the indigenous inhabitants of Olkhon. According to the first, the name of the island means "slightly wooded", and the second means "dry". Both words perfectly describe the island. After all, a third of the island is covered with forests and the amount of precipitation is extremely low - about 240 mm per year.
the oldest center of civilization
Olkhon Island is the historical and sacred center of Baikal. It is also the oldest center of civilization, famous for its mysterious caves, rock paintings, ancient legends and historical traditions. We highly recommend these tours for everyone who is interested not only in the Baikal nature, but also in the mystical places of the lake. In summer, there are great opportunities for hiking and cycling around the island, and in winter you can walk and drive directly on the ice!
