Olkhinskoe plateau is very close to Irkutsk. It is a good choice for a short one-day route. The road to the plateau takes about one hour. A train drives you to the «Orlyonok» train stop.
Leaving an electric train, you will find yourself in the Baikal forest. Tall trees with green crowns will protect you from the hot sun. The Olkha River winding along the tourist trail will give you beautiful views and share its coolness. The river will be a companion in your travel almost till the end of the route.
