Ulan Ude to Ust BarguzanOn my trip to Russia in June, I plan to fly into Ulan Ude, on S7 airlines, and then take the bus to Ust Bargazun to visit Lake Baikal. I am presuming that this would have to be organized as a group tour from Ulan Ude, right? Is it possible to travel independently from Ulan Ude to Ust Bargazun by bus and visit the Lake? While in Ulan Ude, I plan to stay at the UU Traveler's Home and Dennis, the owner, told me that he has a partner in Ust Bargazin who will do a tour for me if there are enough people. I am just wondering what my options are if there are not enough people to organize the tour. Can I travel independently to Ust Bargazin and visit the lake independently?

1There are regular buses from Ulan Ude Selenga (south) bus station to Ust Barguzin. Departs daily around 08.00, but worth checking actual time...
Just go to the bus station, book ahead (in season) or get your ticket from your accommodation (which might take a little commission). from hostels, group transportation and even tours can also be arranged if there are enough people.

2Once I arrive in Ust Barguzin, can I arrange accommodations, tours of the lake, etc. or does all that have to be prearranged prior to departing Ulan Ude? Is there a tourist office at the bus stop in Ust Bargazin where I can organize activities?
