Your Kamchatka vacations is starting here

Mutnovsky and Gorely volcano complex

Mutnovsky and Gorely volcano complex, thermal springs

2 days/1 night

Goal: summit two volcanoes in two days. After such a journey you’ll definitely be proud of yourself.

Mutnovsky volcano is one of the most active volcanoes of the peninsula. It becomes quite evident once you are close enough to the crater. You can feel it under your footsteps: the earth is humming, mud pools are boiling, steam and gas are bursting from the fumeroles.

Inside the volcano’s crater you’ll be met with a cup of hot tea. It’s quite a surreal thing — to drink hot tea inside the volcano’s boiling crater. At any minute a giant will appear above your heads with a spoon and sugar.

Gorely volcano was once considered a twin brother of Mount Kilimanjaro. And as it happens similarity and constant comparison distressed it a lot. So it decided to erupt out of resentment and bitterness. It fired such a lava stream that it burnt down everything within the radius of 25km. Now it is definitely distinguishable. One of the craters now has quite a remarkable bluish lake. It can be easily named Volcano’s Eye. The scientist learned to identify its level of activity by the way this lake changes its colour.

Both volcanoes are surrounded by picturesque landscapes. Don’t forget to capture this beauty on camera.
