"To the Selenga River Delta"

Selenga river deltaThe Selenga River is the largest of more than 400 rivers that feed into Lake Baikal. At the river’s mouth, it forms a wide delta with a surface area of more than 600 square kilometers. Consisting of a host of channels, islets, and reed and sedge thickets, it is an extremely picturesque and diverse area.

The wetlands of the Selenga Delta are one of the key ornithological sites of Eastern Siberia. More than 251 types of birds from 16 families have been noted in the delta. The area is located on the Kabansk Reserve, whose activities are focused on preserving the unique ecosystem of the delta.

The Selenga River Delta offers unique opportunities for ecological and interpretive tourism. Anyone interesting in the history and culture of the local Zabaikal area will be delighted by visits to the Posolsk Monastery and regional museums, observing ancient shaman rituals, and watching bread baking in the old Russian tradition.
