In winter the whole of the Baikal lake is covered with ice. Near Olkhon island ice is especially thick so it is safe to travel there. Cristal clear Baikal ice, ice hummocks, frozen caves – it’s a real winter fairytale.

One of the attractions on the Olkhon island is the Shamanka cliff which is also called the Shaman peninsula or Burkhan cape. The peninsula stretches far into the water and at the very end of it stands a double-peaked marble cliff which is considered to constitute the most scenic view of the island. This cliff is 42 meters high and through it from one side to another runs a 12-meter-long passage called the Shaman cave. At the far end of the island there is a rock ledge with an outline in a form resembling a dragon.
