Cape Burhan on the Baikal Island of Olkhon is Temporarily Closed for Tourists

Access to the main symbol of Lake Baikal - Cape Burhan on Olkhon Island will be limited. 

      From July 1, 2020, a ban will be imposed on citizens visiting Cape Burkhan for tourism and recreation. The decision was caused by the need to reduce the anthropogenic load on this natural monument and avoid its loss.

      Earlier it was reported that as a result of an uncontrolled tourist load on Cape Burhan, irreversible changes occur: ravines, quarries, erosion gaps are formed, rock collapse is predicted. Violating  the special protection regime, hundreds of tourists climb the rocks daily.

      Cape Burhan - the southern tip of the Sarai Bay of Lake Baikal - is a specially protected natural area of ​​regional importance.
