Rent a car to escape to Lake Baikal

Rent a car to escape to Lake Baikal

24.08.2016
We traveled to Lake Baikal by rental car to see unique nature. There is the unique Baikal museum and an arboretum Due to the cheap car rental in Moscow, we managed to take such a comfortable and fantastic trip to the lake.

Should we explain Russians why people travel to Lake Baikal?

Everyone knows that this region is famous for its unique nature. On Lake Baikal, you can have a rest from the major cities, get rid of stress, and find harmony. That's what all of us need. Rent a car to make your journey to the lake unforgettable.

Car rental for a successful trip

The way from Moscow to the lake is long lasting and challenging. You'll drive for about 5,000 km through a few large cities and five time zones. Therefore, it's so important to make the trip as comfortable as possible. There are different cars from various classes in rental companies, including off-road models. Even if you have your vehicle, think of renting a reliable car for a trip like this.

Before driving, you have to:

  • make sure you have a spare wheel, rope and spare parts (they are useful when small damage happen);
  • take fuel because there are few petrol stations on the Siberian roads;
  • book hotels in advance because you'll feel changing of time zones and get tired while driving;
  • take clothes for different weather and necessary pills. The temperature change can be unpredictable near Lake Baikal.

In the footsteps of local shamans

Most tourists come to Listvyanka. There is the unique Baikal museum and an arboretum. In the museum, there are copies of all inhabitants of the lake. Also, you can experience the interactive immersion into the lake.

Olkhon Island is the most famous island near Lake Baikal. Tradition says that Genghis Khan was buried here. The main attraction on the island is Shaman Rock with 13 pillars. This is a central place for shamans to perform their rituals. They believe that spirits used to live in local caves.

A few kilometers away from the Olkhon island, there is the Ogoy island. It is famous for the Buddhist stupa and ancient artifacts imported from Nepal.

Another mysterious attraction is Erd Mount in the Tazheran steppes. The mound was formed without human participation – that's why its regular geometric shape impress tourists. Erdynskie games, dances around the mountain, take place here.

The white-pink Sagan-Zaba rock is one of the most spectacular scenery. This place is known for ancient cave paintings and archaeological remains of the Neolithic that were found in the bay.

Unfortunately, our journey came to an end. Due to car rental in Moscow, we managed to take such a comfortable and amazing trip to Lake Baikal.
