What you'll do

Meditation, imperishable body of lama, shaman ritual

Ivolginsky Datsan is the center of Buddhism in Russia. The main shrine is the imperishable body of Khambo-Lama Etigelov (Itigilov). The lama in 1927 reached the state of Nirvana, his body spent 70 years underground and did not decompose. You have an amazing opportunity to touch the mystery of the lama and see him.

We also learn how to meditate and visit the lama.

After Datsan, we participate in a shaman ritual and climb the mountain overlooking the steppe - welcome to Mongolia

Please confirm the dates before booking.
Starting time is flexible.

1. Встречаемся в отеле
2. Едем в Дацан. Знакомимся с феноменом нетленного тела Хамбо-Ламы Итигилова. Лама достиг Нирваны в 1927 году, но его тело можно увидеть сейчас. Оба президента России проводили несколько часов подряд в личном общении с ламой =) Это стоит увидеть.
3. Экскурсия по Дацану и медитация.
4. Посещение шаманского места, небольшой шаманский ритуал
5. Заберемся на холм для осмотра видов - добро пожаловать в Монгольские степи

Прошу согласовывать поездку перед бронированием.

I was born and grew up in Ulan-Ude. I was lucky to have chance to travel - visited 40+ countries, made around the world for 3 years, learnt Buddhism and meditated. Understanding how difficult it may be to travel in a country where people can't speak English I started guiding people to Meditation and Shaman experience in Ivolginsky temple, Ivolga valley, Siberia.

Please send the request if you are coming in the dates which are not in the Calendar.

Я родилась и выросла в Улан-Удэ. Путешествовала 3,5 года, посетила 40 стран, изучала Буддизм. Помогаю начать медитировать и прикоснуться к шаманизму в Иволгинском дацане и Иволгинской долине.

Для нас экскурсию проводил папа Лилии - Валерий. Хотелось бы сказать ему еще раз от нас огромное спасибо за индивидуальный подход, теплоту и душевность. Это было больше, чем просто экскурсия - мы узнали много нового, обрели новых друзей и получили ответы на многие вопросы. Мы до сих пор обсуждаем и вспоминаем эту поездку. Думаю, что каждый найдет в этой встрече свое. Мы обязательно, когда приедем еще раз, возьмем другие экскурсии у Валерия и Лилии. И даже поворотим эту :) Рекомендуем! Вы получите полное погружение и найдете то, что ищите.

Lilia unfortunately couldn't be our guide herself, but organised someone to do it, who even spoken our mother tongue. He was on time and very chatty we enjoyed the hours we had with Boris and this knowledge about the culture, the area and others. Would definitely do this again! Thanks boris ☺️

Lilia was not able to host us, but she had an excellent substitute guide in Irina! She is knowledgeable about the Datsan and then she took us to Lilia’s parents home for the Shaman ceremony. Lilia’s dad is a Shaman. It felt very special to have this ceremony with him and for us. And, he make “hootch!” Our time with Lilia’s parents was the highlight of this experience! If you have a chance, I definitely recommend doing it!!

A great insight into the religion of Ulan Ude: highly recommend this tour any any adventure with Lilia. Lilian and her dad are lovely, authentic and a wealth of information

Great trip out to the Datsan and to the local shaman areas. Lilia shared her knowledge and helped us feel less like tourists observing something and more like we were participants.
