Shamanka Rock, Khuzhir

(4.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Wander the clifftops, stroll the nearby beach, and swim in the lake bordering Shamanka Rock. A short walk from the village capital, the rocks are the main focal point of the shorelines and offer panoramic views over the lake. Look out for the prayer flags located in various areas around the top of the rocks and enjoy a moment of calm during your explorations. Put Shamanka Rock into our Olkhon vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It's beautiful. People very much around the rocks on ice itself. Very many guests-natives of southern neighbour. But its worse. This place requires respect, although not all this comes.

  • This is probably the most popular place for all Baikal and Olkhon's most popular attraction! It is very easy to reach-from Irkutsk you can hitchhike, by car or bus to get to Sahjurty and from there a free ferry to the island. With port "Olkhon" to dock and Khuzhir can also be reached in different ways, and with the dock and Khuzhir by foot landmark visible from afar and not to her more shestista meters)

  • The point on the top of the hill is quite easily accessible to see a good view of the lake. The shamans markers are an intresting touch as well  more »
