From Irkutsk, don't miss the chance to spend a few days on nearby Olkhon Island. Even though the island town of Khuzir is only 175 miles from Irkutsk the journey will take you about 7 hours via Soviet-era vans on unpaved roads. The journey may be arduous, but quiet time on the island (which only got electricity about 7 years ago) is totally worth it!

Local from Irkutsk

Остров, на котором девять месяцев из 12-и светит солнце, дует ветер! Остров, который, к счастью, пока ещё сохранил свою самобытность и величие природы
