This day tour allows you to discover Bolshiye Koty, a small typical village located 18 km (11 mi) north of Listvyanka. No road links these two villages but a trail, thus Bolshiye Koty is far from usual tourist routes.
At first, Bolshiye Koty was a settlement of gold diggers when gold mining began in 1842. Some vestiges of this activity still can be seen here: the valley with hills and even... two dredges almost demolished. Today the village is noted for its biological station. Here, there is a museum devoted to Lake Baikal, which owns a quite rich collection of dragonflies, butterflies, beetles, crawfish, algae, fish...
To discover other sights of the place you can also climb a hill to enjoy a celestial silence and to take beautiful pictures (1/2 hour ascent).
