It is widely known that Baikal is not a place for roads. It is a wild and impressive area and travelling by car is not popular there. However, in 1975 here was laid a road, but when it was finished, it turned out that people didn’t need it much. So, nature seized it soon and the road turned into a destination and became a legend.

    Visiting Baikal is on my “Bucket List” (list of things to do before I die). This only makes me want to go there sooner. BEAUTIFUL! I wish I could take my Bronco through there.

    “Here remained the only stud” looks like a grave from G*u*l*a*g times. The other way used was to punch the number through a can lid. The cans were only available in “leisure” g_u_l_a_g_s.

    Beautiful. The rolling foothills remind me of the Catskill Mountains in NY. Simply stunning countryside.

    Go do volunteer work for The Great Baikal Trail (Bolshaya Baykalskaya Tropa), and you can see it all and help protect it!
