Circum-Baikal Railway is a unique monument of the engineering minds of late XIX century. Used to be the the most expensive part of the Transsiberian railway, now it is still the most interesting and beautiful one, became a part of Baikal National Park. Visit of this part of railway will give you an understanding of architecture and construction solutions of that days, and the feel of unique nature of the lake. You will go downhill through taiga forest, following the river of Angasolka till its connection with the lake. It is a small village there, used to build for railway workers. Then you will follow the tracks, touching stones in the tunnels built in early 1900s and feeling the breeze of the lake. After the walk we will have a lunch and enjoy the view of the Southern Baikal from the viewpoint. We highly recommend this tour to everybody who is interested in the Transsiberian railway!
