BAIKAL is the largest and deepest freshwater lake of the earth and geologically the most ancient one. It is home to the Mongolian tribe of the Buryats whose cultural heritage is shaped by Shamanism and Buddhism.
Baikal is also the cradle of the Russian Environmental movement and today, the fragile ecology of the lake is once again being threatened, this time by overtourism.
Experience Lake Baikal awakening from the winter and learn a great deal about the natural landscape, the indigenous culture of the Buryats, about ecology and the environmental problems of LAKE BAIKAL during CACSEE’s 2-week Workshop.

In cooperation with: 

Baikal Institute of Nature Management
