Tour Overview

The Evenks populated the taiga zone stretching from the Irtysh river to the Sea of Okhotsk including the territories of the Lena river, the Angara river and Lake Baikal. These people were the most numerous in Siberia. Their main occupations were reindeer breeding, hunting and fishing.

This outstanding tour invites you to discover the remains of authentic culture. It will take you to the real backwoods of Buryatia. However, even if the Evenks do not live in raw-hide tents any more and do not raise deer to survive, these people of woods still keep their particular lifestyle. A trail will bring us to the end of the Barguzin valley where we will discover a typical village isolated by its location and perhaps... by time...
