Where to stay - southern shore

The easily reachable south of Lake Baikal offers sandy beaches, lonely bays, deep forests and mountain tops of 2000 metres. Some of the most famous places of Lake Baikal are situated here, like for example Listvyanka, Port Baikal and Kultuk along the old transsiberian line section. There is Sludyanka as the only stop at the lake for many tourists travelling through Siberia and as starting point for walking-tours to the nearby Khamar Daban Mountains as well as Baikalsk that is famous for the local paper mill and its ski trails. Tankhoy is said to be the gate to Baikalski reservation. Unfortunately, there is no accommodation facility in Sludyanka and you can find only few along the old transsiberian line section between Kultuk and Port Baikal that are cheap and can be booked beforehand. So if you want to walk along the south bank you should have your own tent with you.
