Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Bumpy roads tearing you to pieces, tough Russian UAZ-Bukhanka cross-country vehicles, three-hours' trip - never mind. It's more than worth it!!! Dazzling panoramas, hypnotizing rocks and Baikal at bird's view will leave you spellbound, numb and bewitched!
Just try to plan your route the way to avoid hoards of tourists. I'd suggest really early morning which means you either do it on your own (but the road is a CHALLENGE) or tailor-make it with the help of a local guide. Otherwise you risk to be elbowed or trampled by trudging human beings.
Please mind that It is a territory of a national park with all respective limitations and prohibitions - do not litter, try not to deviate from designated paths and do not pluck flowers. Human pressure is so intensive there that I'd personally advocate for corresponding quotas - the area is remarkably traipsed. In 2006 there were only 60 thousand Olkhon visitors, in 2016 more than 110 and this year they expect not less than 150,000. Human tornado!
And please note their major deficiency - lack of decent toilets while a stench of those available may make you faint. Shame!

Be ready to straggle in uncomfortable old soviet car for few hours to arrive there. Views are nice but nothing much different from other parts of the island. Probably more interesting in the winter

almost every tour car comes here so it gets overcrowded a bit. But the view is one of the best in the whole area, so I still recommend it.

From the boat we saw the contours of a woman. Ask the locals for the legend about it. It can get crowded on the top and we heard it's a bumpy and therefore tiring ride.

You spend a lot of time in the jeep and end up with plenty of other groups on beautiful but overcrowded spots.Very touristy.We enjoyed much more visiting the island on our own with a mountain bike or hiking.

One of the capes of the Olkohon island not to be missed. We wisited it on car on frozen lake at winter time. Lovely views, nice caves (floors created by the frozen lakes) and lots of cracking of ice as it forms and expands.

Great day trip to go an visit this cape. I went with a bus, definitely recommend taking a bus and not biking because it is very far from Khungzir and it is quite bumpy. The way to the Cape is also amazing because the landscape keeps changing. Definitely a worthwhile visit!

Visiting of this cape was for us really unforgettable. Despite of fact we didn't see any nerpa seals. It needs some 20-30 minutes of walking but not in too difficult terrain. We visited it in early July when the weather was nice and still not so many tourists there. Take good mountain shoes because when raining, it could be bit slippery.

During my trip around Siberia, I stayed in Olkhon Island 1 week. I camped 2 nights in a row nearby khoboy cape, It was such an amazing, quite place. Great view of the lake and wide opened. worth staying there overnight for stargazing and sunrise ! it is unforgettable. I went trekking and hitchhiking to the cape. However there are tours every morning from Khuzhir village. The go around 10 and come back around 5, they cook a traditional soup called Ukha which is very tasty (Fish, potato, small rice and some other veggies).
