Description

Along the track, there are several beautiful views of Lake Baikal. The first part of the trail crosses the taiga. In this section the trail ascends a few times along the hills that line the coast. The second section of trail extends into the steppe. Here you'll find a lot of flowers in the late spring and early summer.

There is no paved road or other track for a vehicle to go to Bolchiy Koty village. In summer, the return to Listvyanka is possible by boat; in winter with a hovercraft.

Along the track, there are several beautiful views of Lake Baikal. The section of trail along the coast is even more beautiful and more interesting, but some places on the coast are enough steep that this track can be recommended only to good hikers.
