A small resort village in the Tunkinsky District at the foot of the snow-capped Sayan Range
Republic of Buryatia

Arshan means "healing water" in the Buryat language. This word comes fr om the Sanskrit "rashiani" (nectar), the drink of the gods. This is how they would call a mineral water spring or therapeutic hot spring. In the past, Buddhists would attribute properties of arshan to some insipid springs, and therefore all springs with cold fresh and clean water came to be called arshans, gaining a curative value. The settlement is situated in the foothills of the Eastern Sayan Mountains, where the Kyngyrga river flows down fr om the mountains. Kyngyrga is translated as "drum" from the Buryat language. This mountain river runs in a narrow, winding gorge with beautiful waterfalls.
