We want to make a trip to lake Baikal end of June/ beginning of July 2019. We are interested in nature and remote places, and also not staying on the lake all the time, also the mountains.
We are interested in the north-east, but we do not want to hike the whole F.A.C.T. (Frolikha Adventure Coastline Trail).
Based on information about the F.A.C.T. from around 2010 (http://www.baikalinfo.com/html/german_gbt_fact.xml.php) there is mentioned a ferry between Severobajkalsk and the sanatorial place of Khakusy (Хакусы). Is it still running, and how often and when?
What ferries in general are running along the lake, or where are possibilities to get transported by private persons for a reasonable price?
Are there still long distance ferries betweek Irkutsk, Olchon and Severobaikalsk? Are there East-west-crossings?
On the internet I only find information about transportation (and boats) in the Irkutsk reagion.
