Spring Camping in Siberia, Russia (Potluck & Slideshow)

See for yourself why people call a spring journey to Russia's deepest lake in Siberia as the "Ice Necklace of Baikal". For a short time each year it is possible to walk on water (frozen) for miles along the shoreline and experience the lake like at no other times of the year with the ice patterns changing daily, glorious sunrises and sunsets over the open spaces, and tall rocks rising vertically from the ice. Just as if the lake alone is not grand enough, see Grigory Petrov and his trip mates also cleanse their souls by performing a ritual around a Buddhist stupa, climb a mountain, and explore mysterious caves. Learn about sledpacking, nightly tent duty to stay warm, and other ways how Russians make the trip possible.


Doors open @ 6:15 PM

Potluck @ 6:30 PM

Slideshow @ 7:15 PM
