Fishing and rafting downstream Khamsara river

From Baikal Lake through the Eastern Sayan downstream Khamsara river to the very center of Asia is exactly what is considered to be a TransSayan trip. This trip is for true travelers and lovers of wild nature, magnificent mountains, rafting and fishing. The trip starts from railway station Sluydanka which is situated on the bank of Baikal Lake. The end point of the trip is Kyzyl which is the capital of Tyva.


Transbaikalia is the territory to the east of Baikal Lake stretching out for almost 1,000 kilometers from Patomskoe and Severo-Baikal’skoe uplands (in the north) till the Russian border with Mongolia and China (in the south) and more than 1,000 kilometers from Baikal shores (in the west) till the confluence of Shilka and Argun’ rivers (in the east).

Transbaikalia is characterized by alternation of middle mountain ranges and intermountain basins. In the north and west one can distinguish strongly dissected mountain ridges with modern glaciers (North and South Muya ridges, etc.). The rivers belong to the basins of Lake Baikal, the Lena and Amur.

The climate in Transbaikalia is continental. Winter is long and severe. Summer is warm, however in highlands it can be rather cold in summer. In northern Transbaikalia period with positive temperatures lasts from May to September.

The most of Transbaikalia is located in taiga zone which passes to the south into the forest steppes and dry steppes. The forest boundary in the north of Transbaikalia lies at an altitude of 1200-1400 meters above which up to an altitude 1700-1800 meters there are cedar bushes and lichen tundra.
