- The Baikal is the deepest lake in the world.
- Its average depth is 730 m. and its maximum depth in the middle - 1,620 m.

* Listvyanka Sightseeing Tour

TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
Saint Nicholas Church. As legend says in the beginning of the 19th century the Russian merchant Ksenofont was in the lake and his ship almost wrecked, but the prayer to Saint Nicholas (he is considered to be a guardian of all travellers and sailors) saved the life of the merchant. To commemorate this wonderful rescure Ksenofont vowed to built a church in honor of Saint Nicholas & began building it in 1846. Now the Saint Nicholas church is situated in 500 meters from the Baikal in Listvyanka Village & has icons of the 18th century on display.
At the end of the 1920s, a limnological station was founded here, later it became the Limnological Institute of the Siberian Branch of the Academy of Sciences. Over 50,000 people visit this museum every year. The exhibits introduce visitors to the history of studies and research of the Lake Baikal, its fauna and flora.
Shaman Stone. The Angara River at its beginning is the widest in the world (863 meters wide, maximal depth - 4-6 meters, minimal - 0.5-0.7 meters). It is the only river that starts in the Baikal Lake. In the middle of the Angara's headwater there is a so-called Shaman Stone. According to legends Baikal threw this large stone at his daughter Angara, who had run away to her lover Enisey (another Siberian River). Ancient people believed in wonderful power of the stone, and performed rituals here. There is an observation platform in front of Shaman Stone and there tourists can buy souvenirs, rent boats, or take rest.
According to another legend, the stone marks the sacred center of the Earth. Probably it is right that such a center is located in such a unique area as the Lake Baikal.

Shaman visit on Olkhon Island

Shamanism is one of the oldest religious traditions of humanity which was at the beginning of all world religions. The heathen beliefs which were connected with respect for forefathers’ spirits, the spirits of Sky and Earth go back to the times of the Stone Age and maybe to the Paleolithic Age.
Many Shamanism investigators have the same opinion about the fact that all worldwide known Shaman techniques in different places are alike. These spirit practices haven’t changed since the ancient times and they are the same nowadays as they were thousands years ago.
The land of Turkis tribe from the Baikal Lake to Gobi desert is well known as a classic land of Shamanism. The successors to the ancient traditions became the Buryat-Mongolian shamans. The homeland of Shamanism, the sacred land of Shamanism is the North-Central Asia, and the sacred place — the center of Shamanism in the North is Olkhon Island on the Baikal Lake.
Because of its isolation this island became one of the last sacred places for the shamans of Northern Asia. The Mongolian shamans came there to save their lives in the times of Chingiskhan in the 12th—13th centuries and later the Buryat’s shamans — in the times of Lamaism in Buryatia in the 17th—18th centuries.
Annual meeting of Buryat shamans on Olkhon Island in Baikal. This place is considered sacred in shamanism cultures. Shamanism was very widespread in Siberia before Оctober revolution 1917. In the Soviet time, Russian government struggled against shamans, they were fiercely repressed. Now shamanism is starting to be popular among Buryats again, although the tradition had been nearly lost.
We would like to offer you the meeting with Olkhon shaman and participation in a shaman performance. It can be arranged for your small group: shaman with the magic ritual, and a small entertainment program for you. In the old days the ritual was like a great dance around the sacred mountain Ekhor that lasted for many days and nights and more than 700 people could take a part in it. It was a magic dance with spells, they should help the shamans to go with winds. The offerings of animals were usual during this feast.
