We are going to fly over the most famous volcanoes of central Kamchatka by helicopter. The weather is nice though it is always foggy over Kamchatka.

On this photo is Karymskaya hill, it is an active volcano. It is 1536 m high (5039 ft). Its top is a right truncated cone. It constantly emits hot gases. It is located in the caldera of the ancient volcano (with the diameter of five km (three miles).

It’s a very active volcano, it has erupted twenty times since 1852. Nearby is Karymskoye lake. After the powerful underwater explosion in 1996 all living things died in the lake.

For the last ten years the volcano has erupted twice: in 2005 and 2010. Three other volcanoes erupt simultaneously with this one.
