At the airport of Ulan-Ude, we met the first tourists who arrived in the region under a new tour program. There were 160 people on board.

According to the press service of the Government of Buryatia, the charter program was organized by the tour operator TUI Russia with the support of the Federal Agency for Tourism. The first flight, according to representatives of the tour operator, was filled in just a few days after it went on sale. At the same time, about 70% of placements in the south of Lake Baikal have already been booked.

According to the head of the regional ministry of tourism, Maria Badmatsyrenova, the tourism industry of the republic has taken several steps to minimize the risk of the spread of coronavirus. At the same time, the quality launch of the new direction was facilitated by restrictions on flights abroad.

In total, the tour operator offers 12 tour programs of different price categories for guests of the republic. During the tours, guests can visit the Ivolginsky datsan, the Buddhist center, the "Steppe nomad" ethno-complex, visit the Old Believers or shamans, and visit the center of Eastern medicine. Additionally, you can visit Olkhon, the Ushkany Islands, the Chivyrkuisky Bay or worship the face of the goddess Yanzhima in the Barguzin Valley. 

Flights from Moscow will be carried out with an interval of nine days, the program is scheduled until September 22. During this time, according to the plans of the tour operator, about 1,7 thousand tourists will be able to visit the region. Now the tour operator is discussing options for extending the program for the winter season.
