Volunteer in Siberia at Lake Baikal!

Post Wed Feb 13, 2013 2:07 am

Hello everyone!
We'd like to invite you to take part in Great Baikal Trail volunteer camps 2013! It's a unique opportunity to explore one of the most beautiful and miraculous lakes in the whole world, learn about new culture, enjoy life in primitive nature conditions, meet new friends, contribute to the eco-tourism development in the region and have a lot of fun!
Great Baikal Trail (GBT) is a non-profit environmental organization that aims to provide Lake Baikal and surrounding areas another option to industrial development, with a mission to promote local sustainable development through low-impact eco-tourism. This mission is grounded in building a system of environmentally friendly trails that are safe and enjoyable for hikers of all ages and levels of experience and in environmental education for local youth and children.
Over the last 10 years, from 2003 to the end of 2012, we have run over 180 international projects, building or improving trails at various points throughout the Siberian regions of Irkutsk and Buryatia. This way GBT made an enormous contribution to the development of eco-tourism in the region, education of local population and growth of volunteerism in Russia
A usual GBT trailbuilding project lasts two weeks, which volunteers spend living in tents, taking turns to make their food on campfire and working six days a week, 5 -6 hours a day depending on the weather. There are days off, which give volunteers a chance to go hiking, visit places of interest in a local area or spend their time at their discretion if they wish to do so.
We have a big variety of places around the lake we GBT projects are run, please see our web site for more details!
