3 Trip Round the Baikal Lake

Trip Round the Baikal Lake

Posted on July 1, 2014 by tim

Lake Baikal is the biggest lake in the world by volume, and there are recreational train trips going around it. Some prefer to go around by foot, it said to take 3 to 5 days to complete the picturesque route, but some, like Evgeny prefer to take a train ride. It’s a much faster and easier way to enjoy all the landmarks around the Lake and you can get everything done in a day. They deliberately make several stops so people can walk around and enjoy the scenery, the local meals being cooked by the babushkas, etc.

The trip is called a roundtrip on purpose – the route makes a circle around the lake (or something more like a stretched oval around it). So the first stop is the last stop. Let’s follow Evgeny and see some things he has seen and photographed:

Evgeny says that the trip costs 2,700 rubles per person, which is roughly $77 (as at the summer of 2014).

You see the train on the left? This is the train that takes people on the trip.
