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

South of Olkhon

The cape of Khargoy is famous for the remains of the ancient Kurykan's stone wall. Kurykani is the name for the nation/tribe that lived here in VI - XI century a.d. Now it is difficult to prove the purpose of the wall. The construction is considered to be protective. Others suppose the place to be the holy worship shrine. The length of the wall is about 185 metres, in some parts the height is as much as 1.5 - 2 metres. Near the wall there is a ditch, 3.5 m width / 1.5 m in depth. The wall was discovered in 1879 by I.D. Chersky.
