In May 1920 after the Tunklinsk valley was rescured from white army Cossacks and the solders of Kolchak, Irkutsk medical department ordered to bring injured red army soldiers to Arshan resort. In 1920 there were 320 people resting here. In 1922 the bath corpus was built, in 1925 there were built two sleeping corpuses. In 1926 a small hydro electro station was built on the river Kindarga.

The mineral water of the resort Arshan has a wide diapason of temperature from cold water (11-13oc ) to hot (45 oc). According to the chemical composition the mineral water of Arshan belongs to the 1st class, being carbon with high gas composition, says V. A. Aleksandrova.
     The Resort has mountainous climate. The position of the sun in the mountains increases ultraviolet radiation, which strengthens pulmonary ventilation and oxygen intake, which causes reduction of sugar in the blood and decreasing of blood tension.

     Arshan means fresh water, bright sun, dark-blue sky, wild virgin taiga, majestic cedars. In the mountains you can enjoy walking on luxurious Alpine meadows with the efflorescent poppies and lilies and the fluttering many-colored butterflies. In spring all the mountain slopes are covered with delicate pink color flowers.
This source is traditionally supposed to be the place of dwelling of the spirit- the master of this place. Every Arshan has a place for scarifications. As a rule these services are about asking and thanking. Usually people asking him to let them come through and give the presents to the spirit in form of pouring white liquor such as milk, vodka, they also tie ribbons asking to free them from their illnesses and when they are going to depart. That¶¶¶s why a holly grove appeared here with a great number of colored ribbons tied around the trees.
Not far from the village there is a water fall 5-6 m high, in front of it there is a bridge, and you can go there for as short excursion.
