As you know Russia is a multinational country with different cultures and religions and Baikal is not an exception.
Despite the fact that the main nation in Russia are Russians, historically the lake area was inhabited by Buryat people. Since the ancient times The Buryats were shamanist. However, under the influence of Mongol people, the Buryats who lived on the eastern side of Baikal, so-called “eastern Buryats” adopted Buddhism, while “Western Buryat” remained shamanists.
In addition, during the reign of Catherine II, in the middle of the XVIII century, due to the split of the Russian Orthodox Church people who supported the Old Believers were arrested and exiled to Siberia. One of the destination points was Tarbagatai village in the Republic of Buryatia, where Old Believers still live and still adhere to the traditions of the Old Believers.
This tour is unique in its kind, since the trip you will not only relax on the lake, but also get acquainted with 4 cultures and religions of the peoples of Baikal region, cross the lake in its widest part, visit Olkhon island, Ust-Barguzin, Ulan-Ude, take a train of the Trans-Siberian Railway and much more.
