The Circum-Baikal Railway remains the most exotic and favorite place for recreation and traveling for tourists from different cities and countries. It is a complex historical, architectural, engineering, and landscape monument with federal status and located in the Baikal National Park.
Thanks to the builders» talent and feat of labor, the road's construction perfectly meshes with the harsh and vulnerable Baikal landscape.
The site is easily accessible from both ends. It is not difficult for hikers and is completely safe.
The most popular tour is taking the Circum-Baikal Express from Irkutsk to Slyudyanka and then onward to Port Baikal. You can also take a hike along the Railway, as there are modern hostels all along the route. There is a year-round ferry to Port Baikal through the never-freezing Angara headwaters.
