The Great Baikal Trail (GBT)
Departure at 9 am from Irkutsk to Listvyanka. Further from the street Gudina begins our trekking to the Great Goloustnoy. The total distance of trekking is 50 km. The entire route runs along the western shore of Lake Baikal, and is divided into 3 parts.
First day: Today we will have to walk 21 km, from Listvyanka to the Big Cats. The first day is considered the most difficult, since part of the way needs to be climbed uphill. Lunch will be on the shore of Baikal today: we'll light a fire and cook the soup, cook taiga tea and make sandwiches. By 5 pm we must reach the Great Cats, where we will spend the night. The village of Bolshie Koty is isolated from civilization, as there are no roads to the village: in summer, a hydrofoil boat walks to the village, in the winter a temporary automobile road runs along the ice of the lake. Dinner at the guest house. If desired, you can order a bath on the shore of Lake Baikal.
Second day: Today we are waiting for the shortest distance, about 12 km, to Cape Kadilny, so today we can sleep a little longer, or go slowly.
On the way we will have lunch in nature, on the shore of Lake Baikal. By 16.00 we will reach Cape Censer. There we will spend the night in the "summer" for the foresters, since this is the only option for living. Here we will meet the same tourists as we, who go to Listvyanka. We will have to prepare dinner ourselves, for a common kitchen. If desired, you can order a bath on the shore of Lake Baikal.
Third day: After breakfast, we must pass the last part of our trekking (18 km), to the Great Goloustnoy. The bus will wait for us at 17.00, so we will need to go fast enough not to be late.
