The "Test Path" project has completed

On July 16, the second BBT summer project “Test Path”, which took place in the Transbaikal National Park on the Svyatoy Nos peninsula, was completed. As part of the project, it was planned to build a new section of a serpentine, a U-turn and an observation deck. As a result, 367 meters of a new trail were built by volunteers, 19.5 of which were a wide observation deck with a view of two bays: Barguzinsky and Chivyrkuisky. 

For many, getting to work was an endurance test. The road took 1.5 hours with a climb of 500 meters. But everyone, even the 62-year-old volunteer from Belgium, overcame their 5 km uphill to build a new trail. The team not only successfully worked on the trail, but also had a great time. All two weeks of the project was sunny. Volunteers lived on the shore of the Barguzinsky Bay, where they enjoyed swimming every day. Weekends at the project were spent actively. One day they climbed the plateau of the Holy Nose, the other went for the sandy beaches to Myagaya Karga. On the Fisherman's Day holiday, volunteers went to the village of Kurbulik, where they tried local dishes, and then on a boat they reached the Zmeyevaya Bay, where, of course, they bathed in thermal springs. Thanks to all the volunteers who were not afraid to test their strength on the trail. Thanks to them, the serpentine that leads to the Holy Nose has grown by 1 knee. 

This volunteer camp was held as part of the project “We Preserve Nature, Working for People,” which is implemented using a grant from the President of the Russian Federation for the development of civil society provided by the Presidential Grants Fund
