    Description

    Hi! My name is Darya.

    I live not far from Baikal lake in Irkutsk and own a travel company. We organize and hold various tours arround the lake and in Mongolia also. Our tours can be different options: excursions, sightseeing, trekking, hiking, kayaking, skiing, skating on ice, dog sledding, expeditions e.t.c.

    Also, I am a teacher of English and in my free time I am a pivate teacher for kids and adults.

    I have been travelling as workawayer myself and now decided to be a host.

    We have several projects for next few years: building, language school, help in the hostel and with tourists.

    Important information!!! Actual project is a building a wooden hut in the forest at Hamar Daban mountain range at Mamay river gorge.

    So we need people, who would like to feel and live at real nature and have good building skills. You can get an unforgettable experience with us!

    Also we need some photographers, bloggers, video-makers, to make a content for our projects.

    You can stay for a short - period of time 3-5 days, but we will appreciate if you stay longer!

    We accept people for the next year - if you are planning a long-term trip - contact and inform us! ,
