Quite a magical place. Very calm. Surrounded by grandiose Baikal with turquoise water. Sacred cows licking sweets or salt off the rocks. Bluest ribbons on wooden posts. All adds some magical aspects to this special place. I would strongly reccomend.

Shamanka or Burhan as locals call this place is the place of great beauty. The sunsets there are unbelievable, take your best camera with you! The descend to the rock is tricky so wear good non-slip walking shoes and be careful. A wheelchair user won't...More

We went there with a tour group so probably can't answer your question directly. My impression is that Irkutsk is a nice city, our tour guide for 4 days is a local who told us Irkutsk is a famous college town in east Siberia... More
