Lake Baikal as side trip from Mongolia?

Jump to last reply

I'm starting to plan a trip to Mongolia for 2014 and wondering if going into Russia to see Lake Baikal would be a good idea. Since our time away is limited (to around 2 weeks total including travel time) it would mean we'd see less of Mongolia so I'd only do it if Lake Baikal is really worth it. Also it would be a not-cheap side trip on top of an already not-cheap trip...so there's that.

I don't know that we'd ever take another trip to that part of the world so it's definitely a now-or-never kind of thing.

I've searched online for info from people's trips and haven't found a whole lot to help me decide. Has anyone here been to Lake Baikal and would you give me your opinion on spending a few days there? Thanks.

I'll also post this on the Europe/Russia forum.
