Vasily Ivanovich can talk about Baikal beauties, it seems, endlessly. "Our nature is so diverse. In fact, every key, every river is beautiful in its own way. You can find cedars in several girths, and what beautiful mountains. Like Vysotsky:" There can only be mountains better than mountains ... ", the director captivates with the story Baikalsky reserve.

Nature Reserve and Tourists Compatible

The holdings for which Vasily Ivanovich is responsible are considerable - there are three territories under management: the reserve itself and two federal reserves - Kabansky and Altacheysky. They are located far from each other, which makes it very difficult for employees to work.

But the main difficulty in their work is not distance, but inaccessibility. Most of the reserve is the Khamar-Daban ridge - mountains exceeding 2 thousand meters. There is a lot of snow on the northern slope of the ridge. Movement in the reserve is possible only on foot.

However, through the efforts of Vasily Ivanovich and the staff of the reserve, cognitive tourism is purposefully developing here. The Baikalsky Nature Reserve is a role model. It is no coincidence that in 2011 it was included in the number of model territories for the development of infrastructure for educational tourism in protected areas.

Various year-round routes and excursion programs are organized here for all visitors without exception: trails with wooden flooring for people with disabilities, and forest routes through the cedar forest, and active routes to mountain lakes and waterfalls.

The sites allocated on the territory for the development of educational tourism are constantly being developed. Huts and shelters have been built, hundreds of bridges across rivers, tens of kilometers of trails are maintained.

"I am often bombarded with questions: how is it - tourism in the reserve?" - Vasily Ivanovich shares.

About 2 million tourists visit Baikal every year. When a trip to nature is not sensibly organized, huge damage is inflicted on it.

"Therefore, it was decided to develop the infrastructure. A person who comes to our reserve must walk only in the right places and at the right time," the head of the reserve emphasizes.

In the Baikal Nature Reserve, as in others, no more than 5% of the territory can be used for tourism. The rest remains inviolable, protected, closed to the public.

"We made a significant part of the infrastructure on the adjacent territory so that people can get information and make a decision about traveling along the protected routes," he notes.
