The steppes take one half of island, wild taiga - another. Here there is a
spiritual center by most ancient of religion - Shaman. Let's have a look in a
cave, where the spirit of Baikal - Burchan lives. Not far there is a place,
where thousand years were incinerated жертвенные animal. Let's mount in a
mountain, on which one the sins are released. By the detected archeological
finds, on Olchon the Man for the first time has saddled horses. There are
