The best place to stay on a tour to Olkhon Island, Lake Baikal!

Islands of Maloe More (Small Sea)

Maloe More (Small Sea strait) has more than 10 islands. You may enjoy a very interesting 2-hour ship excursion. It begins in Khuzhir where you will board the ship. You will see the beauty of Olkhon Island and Shaman Rock from water. This trip will take about 2 hours. During the trip you will first see the Crocodile island (it is called so because of its shape). The second interesting place is the White island, which has the shape of a swimming lion. It looks like the crocodile is following the lion. However, the lion-shaped island is called the White island because of a lot of gulls nesting there. When hundreds of gulls land on it the island becomes white. Several years ago cormorants chose this popular island to nest. From that time the top of the island is populated by cormorants and gulls live below. You will have an opportunity to feed the birds. What is interesting cormorants never eat your bread, while gulls fight over it.
