Tour Overview

This trek starts from Listvyanka and takes 6 to 8 hours, depending on pace. The trail follows the shore through the cliffs, beaches and forest. In Bolshiye Koty we will climb the mount to meditate in celestial silence admiring the panorama of the lake, we will go for a walk in taiga, and, if we have more strength, we will climb Skriper cape to enjoy this marvellous viewing point that takes one's breath away... In the village we will stay with a local family. We will make our way back by hydrofoil "Raketa".

This trekking is not recommended for those who suffer from vertigo.
