Having resorted to poetic images, one can say that Baikal is the blue heart of Siberia, and Olkhon is the heart of Baikal. The island is the geographical, historical and sacred center of the lake — the center of ancient legends and historical legends. This island repeats the shape of Baikal even with its elongated crescent shape, as if to say: “Without Baikal, there is no Olkhon, but even without Olkhon there can be no Baikal”. The cult center of Olkhon is Burkhan Cape, ending with a Shamanka marble rock with a through cave. No trip and photo report is complete without photos of this place. What to talk about, if this place is the hallmark of Lake Baikal. Having been here, you will see the sacred mountain of Jima — the highest on Olkhon, the Virgin rock — the petrified wife of the Buryat shaman, the white marble rocks of Cape Sagan — Khushun, popularly called “Three brothers” and many other unique nature monuments.
