BAIKAL FROM THE EAST. ONE-DAY ROAD TRIP
When you travel a lot because of business there is always an opportunity to see the World after jobs well done.Flashback from 2015 with my first Focus
My journey starts from Irkutsk city. It was a great sunny day - best weather for a road trip, which I made because of business needs. Heading to Ulan-Ude the road is laying on the east side of Baikal and the views there is just tremendods
On my previos post I tried to show you the most beautifull places in 2 days. And a second after publishing realized that I left this one "on a shelf" when DT was just in the begining. Who knows) Anyway, here you are:
Pulled over to catch this sunset. You can also find here one of the 251 rivers inflows in Baikal Lake.
Upon reaching the Ulan-Ude city, that I mentioned in my previos article I visited central Buddhist temple (Datsan). Actually it`s very important for the locals, but for visitor it`s not more then tourists place to visit and buy some souveniers unless you are an adherent of this faith, of course, but in this case it`s better to visit Ivolginskiy Datsan. Anyway this culture and religion is the general for the Buryat Nationality and everybody respect this customs and traditions.
This road is a pleasure for the driver
