We are located about 270 km from the nearest city – Irkutsk and 60 km from the Olkhon Island. To get to our village, you have to cross the mountains and Taiga forest, the nearest asphalt road finishes 42 km away.
The people here live the way like they did it hundreds years ago – they go fishing, care about domestic animals and the land. Our village is far from tourists route – there are no bars or hotels and the local people are friendly and curious about foreigners.
Our family have three houses, where one of them we left just for You. In 2017 we have installed central heating but we left the old stove anyway, so you can enjoy the life fire in the evenings.
The house is very close to the river and stays in front of the high rock, which you can see just from the window
eastories’ recent collaboration
what do they say about eastories trips?
It’s hard to explain what is Siberia – it’s just impossible to compare it with any other place on the earth. Fishes from the cleanest lake in the world baked on the fireplace, shamanist rituals, white-blue wooden houses, sweaty banya, and the space- unimaginable space around. It is just unforgettable to immerse yourself in this world, where the time passes so slowly, where people are free and modest and where you can understand how little are you and your concerns in front of the World.Daria Kosińska
It is difficult to describe the feelings that arise after you take the Transiberian train for the first time. Before that, it was almost like a myth: images, movies and news made you get a romantic picture of the route and the train itself.Jose Maria
Life on the train has its advantages. First of all, time flows differently. The rhythm of life set trainstops.Iwa Pawlak
