Baikal Ring-Road

Baikal Ring-Road 46

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.

  1. Great photos. Bratsk hydropower plant seems to be pretty impressive. In the other pics it looks a little bit like western canada or alaska.

  2. Absolutely Beautiful. Every time I see pictures like these of such beautiful wilderness it just reminds me of how great God is.

  3. nobody can go to that area unless somebody inds huge mineral or oil deposits there.personally i would like to visit this area but i dont like cold

  4. 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.

  5. “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.

  6. Awesome pictures I think that I could make it there with Dodge 1500. Very, Very cool pictures I would love to see that in person. I wish there were more pictures of such a beautiful place as this. Thanks for the picture uploads…
