The Maksimikha village is situated 237 km from Ulan-Ude.
Maksimikha is one of the most beautiful places not only in the east of the Baikal lakeside, but also in the whole region. Its advantageous geographical position, unique microclimate, natural and cultural sights attract tourists every year.
Maksimikha’s beneficial geographical position on the shores of the southernmost Barguzinsky Gulf’s bay ensures unique local microclimate with mild winters and hot summers. Fine golden sand of the Baikal lakeside and the purest water found in this bay invite to enjoy a swim and a sunbath. Have a great summer rest with your children!
The most beautiful season in Maksimikha is autumn which colors the forest and the mountains in bright shades. The spectacular landscapes live long in tourists’ memories and painters’ masterpieces. Everyone enjoys the period of Indian summer when mushrooms, various herbs and berries ripen. And in spring, the village looks entirely different with its all-round blossoming. The natural beauty overwhelms during marsh tea’s florescence; these flowers adorn the lakeside and the forest with a delicate light-violet glow. Nature lovers will enjoy the sight of the Baikal’s awakening, opening, and release from the “ice prison”.
