9 Valley Of Geysers At The End Of The World

Valley Of Geysers At The End Of The World

Today we’ll make a journey into the Valley of Geysers located on the Kamchatka Peninsula.

Sharing their impressions of traveling to the magic place people can’t help describing the amount and quality of caviar offered there. There are two ways of reaching the valley. One is for those who are willing to save money, don’t mind spending 5 days on walking through the local jungles and are not afraid of bears behind the bushes. And another way is chosen by those who want to be safe in spite of the fact that flight by a helicopter is much mire expensive.

The Karymski Volcano is the most active volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula. The 20th century was marked by 23 eruptions. Due to that the lake located 6 km away from the volcano turned from a fresh water reservoir into the biggest natural basin filled with acidic water.

Uzon Volcano is located in eastern Kamchatka. The volcano contains the largest geothermal area in Kamchatka. Uzon and Geyzernaya calderas contain boiling springs, gas-steam jets, mudpots, small mud volcanoes, hot and cold lakes.

    Simply beautiful.
    At first I was like “wtf 5 day walk? no way I would walk 5 days to see anything…”
    But after seeing the pictures I wouldn’t mind at all =)

    @Le Putsch:

    It says there are 40 geysers in that huge area. Geysers don’t erupt constantly. I guess the photographer didn’t get a chance to snap one in action? I’ve been to Yellowstone and know some of the geysers erupt pretty rarely. Old Faithful is one of the most frequent ones.

      In New Zealand they put a handful of soap powder in the hole and a few minutes later it shooting up. The soap reduces the surface tension on the water.

    Russians, you are so fortunate to have such incredible beauty in your country. I was even thinking how lucky the animals that live there, every day the bears and tigers, etc. wake up and see this amazing scenery! Lucky bears… :D

    After five days of walking I hope some of those springs are just right for a long soak. :)
