As you travel in Mongolia, you will encounter groups of thirteen ovoo — sacred stones devoted to the thirteen sky deities. Shamans and Buddhists alike conduct ceremonies at those sites.
Cross the border into Mongolia to discover the beautiful Lake Khuvsgul – Baikal’s “younger sister”. A mysterious ritual at the sacred centuries-old “13 ovoo” stone heaps, an invigorating horseback ride through the steppe, and the traditional khorkhog barbeque will immerse you in the Mongol lifestyle. As you are back in Russia, you will enjoy a ride on the Circum-Baikal railway and a visit to the Baikal Museum.
