Full description
Discover the best of the Republic of Buryatia on a full-day journey to Arshan. Hike the Peak of Love, visit Buddhist stupas and try local cuisine. Learn about the history of the region from an expert guide. Begin your private tour early in the morning and hop aboard a minivan that will take you to Arshan. Enjoy views along the way of the southernmost tip of Lake Baikal along with several Buddhist stupas. Have breakfast in the village upon arrival and try a giant beef chebureki (meat pastry). Visit the local market and buy herbs and natural larch chewing gum. Enjoy your fill of natural mineral water and hike to a small waterfall. Continue the hike if you're feeling up for it, and climb to the first cliff of the Peak of Love in the Sayan Mountains. Because this is a private tour, participants have the option of dedicating the whole trip to climbing to the summit at 1,200 meters.
