"Absolutely stunning views!" - That's what people usually say about this tour.

On this tour you will have your a private car with a driver and an english-speaking guide. Together we drive out the city to the stunning valley of Ivolga area and head off-the-beaten track to some of the places reserved only for locals. We visit the local sacred Oboo where Buryats from villages worship the spirits.

We visit a local russian village located on the bank of Selenga river (main tributary of lake Baikal), it was founded back in 18 century and didn't change a lot since.

Ivolginsky Datsan is a logical addition to this excursion as we're exploring Ivolga area. Including trip to the lama temple is top recommended.
