View Full Version : Staying on Baikal island

Hi -- last year I spent a week on the island of Olkhon on Lake Baikal. I was really lucky in finding a lovely homestay -- amazing food and friendly khozyaika. I would just like to recommend the lady who put me up and say that if anyone is thinking of visiting Olkhon then I could pass on her contact details.

As for the island itself -- amazing -- but check first that there aren't forest fires in the taiga as this can spoil visibility.

I'd be interested potentially for a couple weeks late in the summer. Could you pass on her details, price, etc....? Thanks.
