Kuchiger Thermal Spring
The unique Kuchiger thermal springs extend at the foot of the Barguzinsky Range. The Kuchiger hydro therms come out at the north-western side of the Barguzin depression on the right bank of the Barguzin river in the Kucheger tract.

Kuchigerian sources treat diseases of the musculoskeletal system, diseases of the bones, muscles, and tendons, gynecological diseases, skin diseases, diseases and consequences of injuries of the peripheral nervous system.
Springs are notable for the fact that thermal waters, passing through loose soil sediments and enriching them with hydrogen sulfide, create significant reserves of therapeutic hydrogen sulfide mud.
Alla Thermal Spring

The source water belongs to sulfate-sodium mineral waters, slightly gas-saturated, low-mineralized (316.0 mg / l), slightly alkaline. Content of nitrogen (up to 1 g / l), radon (from 35 to 43 eman), silicon (up to 60 mg / l). Water temperature Gargin siliceous term is 75 ° C.
The waters of the Garginsky spring cure particular diseases of the musculoskeletal system (arthritis, polyarthritis), gynecological diseases and skin diseases, and nervous disorders. Water is recommended in the treatment of the effects of fractures of limbs for rapid recovery. Water has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.
