2. You shall follow your route on the map in English "Across
The North-West Baikal Area"! You can get this map from me.
It is possible to make tours on kayak-paddling from Cape
Elohin to Baikalskoe village. You may be alone or two on
kayak "Taymen-2", you may be 4 or 5 on 2-seat kayak "Taymen"
and 3-seat kayak "Taymen-3".
You shall have a life-belt.
You may be alone or two on 3-seat kayak "Vuoksa-3" and on 3-seat
kayak "Ilmen-3". These are unsinkable, price would be
plus $100 per person.

Also you prepare your food; it is good to have your own
gas-stove and gas-cylinder (or benzine stove and benzine),
and kitchen utensils. You also to have a fishing-tackle if
you are fisherman!

I recommend for defence from mosquitos to use protect gauze.
Also it is absolutely necessary to follow instructions
Patricia Ormsby (Japan) to protect you from bites of tic; see
her article on encephalitis.

25 June, 10 July, 25 July, 10 August.
Groups on kayaks: 1 pax, 2 pax, 3 pax, 4 pax, 5 pax.

5. I am looking for cheap travel trips in Lake Baikal in order
to increase number of clients; you could order the trip of
any length (days)!
You always keep close to the shore when you paddle (you move
from the shore at a distance of 10 meters); if there would
be sudden wind - you must have enough time to drag the kayak
on the shore!
