Prepare to recalibrate your sense of adventure and create lifelong memories! Kamchatka is scarcely populated but there are few places on earth that feel as alive as the Russian Far East peninsula, where ill-tempered volcanoes loom over bubbling mud pools, hot springs simmer at the base of lava flows, creeping glaciers stand tall on the shoulders of the mountains, and the sea is home to rich marine life.
Kamchatka is a wild splendor created by Times, Mother Nature and the Ocean. Kamchatka is land of untouched landscapes and the unspoiled nature. Admire its volcanoes, acid lakes and geysers on the fault lines of the Earth and of Time.
. The valley of geysers
The Valley of geysers was discovered not long ago – in April, 1941. There are over 20 big geysers in the Valley. Some of them gush forth every 10-12 minutes, while others may erupt once in 4-5 hours. The wreathes of steam, fountains of boiling water, incredible colours of slopes and profuse greenery of grasses and trees create an enchanting show.
. Volcanoes of Kamchatka
Kamchatka’s volcanoes have never been bloodthirsty: the natives of Kamchatka can hardly recall eruptions that carried death there. A dark silhouette of volcano against the clean dawning skies does not imply a threat – it is usually a token of nice weather for the people of Kamchatka. The most famous Kamchatka’s and he greatest Eurasian volkano is Kluchevskoy. Almost 5000 km of its height was formed by a specific geological “pedestal”, a slope of ancient volcano.
. Brown Bears
Can you beleive that Kamchatka bears are pragmatic, cowardly and unaggressive? The reason could be their fish “diet” as they much prefer the fish to the meat. It may seem incredible, but the huge predator is a vegetarian for a good few months before the rivers are filled up with fish. In July you can observe an idyllic picture of brown bears grazing like cattle in the forest’s and berry fields.
