BAIKAL FROM THE EAST. ONE-DAY ROAD TRIP
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
