Trans-Siberian Railway travel guide

Trans-Siberian Railway - The Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) (Chapter)

5th Edition Apr 2015

This is the The Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) chapter from Lonely Planet’s Trans-Siberian Railway guidebook.

Most people know the Trans-Siberian Railway, but how many can say they’ve heard of the ‘other’ Trans-Sib, its poor country cousin, the BAM (Baikal-Amur Mainline or Baikalo-Amurskaya Magistral)? The branch line to end all branch lines, the BAM begins as a set of points at Tayshet and ends more than 4200 lonely kilometres further east at Sovetskaya Gavan, passing through some jaw-slackeningly off-the-map places en route. As great railway journeys go, this is a Soviet epic, a rail-clanging odyssey you’ll never forget.

  • getting into hot water at northern Baikal’s minispas for a spot of R&R Siberian-style
  • maps
  • bagging up your boots for the Frolikha Adventure Coastline Trail, one of Siberia’s most exhilarating long-distance hiking routes
  • transport
  • touring the BAM’s nicest town, St Petersburg-styled Komsomolsk-na-Amure, with Soviet monuments and nearby Nanai villages
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Bratsk, Severobaikalsk & Around, Tynda, Komsomolsk-na-Amure.
