  • They say that before going and walk around the island, need upon arrival immediately greet the rock. Honestly, and did. Let the sounds silly maybe, but zdorovalas'. Every time. Rock is impressive. Besides the fact that it's a beautiful place, it is also a very strong place. Feel the power of the distance. Now don't really observe traditions and taboos associated with a visit to Cape Burhan and very worthwhile. Before you climb on a rock, read, learn and perhaps a desire to disappear. This is especially true for women. Many go to the Cape. Such a lot of people. In this believe and, surely, something to eat. Be sure to visit the headland. There is very beautiful. While sometimes, on both sides of the Cape Baikal behaves completely differently. Sit side by side, to think, to tie a Ribbon on a tree near the Cape ... all you need to do. If it helps in the discharge of your innermost desires, I can't say, but will not become worse. maybe even vice versa-will get better and easier. That's for sure. Creates the impression that the rock does not rock, but something alive. Therefore, the Burkhan Cape to visit you need but with respect and humility. If such sensations you haven't, you better walk past or watch from afar.
