"The first 4.5 km trail goes uphill. This rise is the hardest part of the route. Before reaching the top, the trail splits. Go toward the right. At the top (860 meters above sea level, 404 meters above the lake), a beautiful view of Lake Baikal awaits you, and you will soon descend to the lake shore. After a series of switchbacks, the path runs along the coast. You will cross many rivers and streams by bridge, all of which were built by GBT volunteers. Camping is permitted only in designated areas, which can be easily found along the trail. In some places, the trail runs along steep cliffs, so please be careful and cautious."
