Like all unusual objects of nature, cape Khoboy is the theme of tales and legends, thought up manu centuries ago.

Cape Khoboy is located near the widest place of Baikal (79,5 kilometers)and when the weather is good and the atmosphere is clear, one can see the Eastern shore, the mountainous shape of Saint Nose peninsula.

Even dry surface of grottos covered by sand are good for spending a night and it,s possible to watch the sunrise just from there. On the western tip of the island a special spot for Olkhon,s shamans, tailagans (rituals) is located. The white fang of Khoboy can be seen from there and there are a lot of sairgai - a wooden poles for tethering post. On the shore of the lake, closer to south, there is a through cave with tunnels, leading inside of the rock.
