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 catamaran on the shore!
