A legend has it that Kurile lake is a result of a conflict between the forces of nature. There once was a Vysokaya mountain. And it was so immense that the nearby mountains couldn’t see the sun and they were so aggravated by it that they were constantly fighting with each other. Finally the mountain became so sick and tired of them that it got up and retreated to the Sea of Okhotsk, but it left its heart where it was and hid it in a lake. On its way the mountain was followed by the river Ozernaya. Noone knows if it’s true or not.
But its fervent heart still keeps the surrounding volcanos, rivers and springs warm. Many different animals and fish and birds took fancy to this place. They are used to people and don’t shy away from them. It is truly an extraordinary view.
We are also going to land on Ksudach volcano caldera that formed only 100 years ago as a result of a powerful eruption. Bathing in thermal springs of Khodutka volcano that intertwine into an entire river will be a perfect conclusion to the day.
