2 To the Top of the Volcano

To the Top of the Volcano

Posted on October 16, 2012 by team


Avacha volcano is rather huge. Its height is 2700 meters (8860 ft), people start climbing it from the height of 800 meters (2625 ft). Thus, they should climb 1900 m (6233 ft) high. It is not so easy. It usually takes from six to eight hours to climb this height.

Japanese tourists aged 50-80 are doing some exercises.

It should be mentioned that it’s office workers who need from six to eight hours to climb Avacha. The record time is one hour forty one minute.

One sportsman aged 60 climbed the volcano for one hour fifty seven minutes.

These sad signs tell about those who left to climb the volcano and never came back.

The top is still rather far.

200 meters (656 ft) left behind.

This is a neighbouring Koryaksky volcano.

It is also Koryaksky volcano.

If you look up you see such a picture.

People are already so tired so they even do not smile.

Here is a Japanese group.

They are happy and full of energy.

People are walking along the ash road.

Looking behind we can see how the top is becoming smaller and smaller.

The Japanese group is well organized.

They are descending with comfort.

And it becomes hard to believe that only twho hours ago they were on the top of the volcano.

These are the evening views from the camp.

And these are some more moments on the Avacha volcano:

This is the crater itself.

The Japanese group moves on.

The huge volcano and so small people.

Employees of some plant left this memorable stone here.

The guys are collecting sulphur.

Guides tell that there are all chemical elements in the volcano.

That’s a good reason to come to Kamchatka.
