Peschanaya Bay is the sole place on the lake where one can see miraculous "walking-on-stilts" trees, a real wonder of Baikal. The trees have risen above the earth on their stilt-like roots, from under which water and winds blow out the soil. Climate of Peschanaya Bay is mild and the bay is famous for plenty of sunny days. It is the only place in Eastern Siberia, where the average annual temperature is above-zero
