Description

Discover the beauty of lake Baikal – largest freshwater lake in the world and the world's deepest lake. Get to know its people and the many cultures that thrive together in the Buryat Republic. Learn all about the roots of the local Buryat people in Ust Orda settlement and stand in the heart of the Buryat Republic – in Ulan Ude; take a trip to Ivolginsky Datsan – a Buddhist monastery complex, founded during Stalin's times and with his permission. The highlight of the tour should be the visit to the village of Tarbagatai, the Russian Orthodox Old Believers, a sect of the Orthodox Church guided by traditions that predate the church’s 17th-century reforms.
