Khamar-Daban is a mountain ridge, located at the south of Baikal. Especially much snow occurs here, and snow-drifts reach the height of a human. The slopes of Khamar-Daban mountains retain a stable snow cover till May, which then change to marvelous blossoming of wild Rhododendron which is widely spread of the slopes here. This place is also called Siberian Alps. Cross-country skiing and Alpine ski-tracks of any complexity are possible here. This place has its own multi-climate with high humidity, crystal-clear rivers and alpine lakes, huge bearded cedar-trees and soft deep moss. In summer time in such Riviera it is especially pleasant to have different trekking and hiking routes of any duration.
