A Car Road Over the Ice of Lake Baikal to the Largest Island of Olkhon Opened in Irkutsk Oblast

A car road over the ice of Lake Baikal to the largest island of Olkhon, inhabited by 1 thousand people every year and regularly visited by tourists, opened in Irkutsk Oblast.

      The length of the road is 12 km, its carrying capacity is 10 tons, speed limit is 10 km/h. The thickness of the ice exceeds 70 cm. It is noted that this year the preparation of the road to Olkhon was significantly complicated by a large number of hummocks formed in the Maloe More Strait of Baikal due to severe frosts. Olkhon is the largest island on Lake Baikal, 73.5 km long and 15 km wide. It is connected to the mainland by a ferry line in summer and an ice road in winter. It is the most popular tourist destination for recreation in Irkutsk Oblast.
