Beauty and Volcanoes of Kamchatka

Here are some photos of the Kamchatka region – the one with volcanoes and bears, as seen by a tourist. Denis travelled there and took these nice photos. He says that nature there is a lot like the regular Siberian nature, however there are active volcanoes which add to the view and because this place is on the coast it’s more damp there so fogs are daily things. Let’s see what else he found there:

As soon as you arrive at Kamchatka airport you already start seeing beautiful mountains, which are actually volcanoes. 

If you go to a local beach you will be able to see another volcano if the weather conditions are good. 

And here is a panoramic shot of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski – the capital of the region with, again, a volcano in the background rising up into the clouds. 

And this is colorful tundra, like the one we had here

The forests are very dense in the region.

Here are two volcanoes in the one photo.

Again, a volcano.

And a road.

A local coastal highway.

Pacific beach. 

Now the view FROM the volcano.

And this is inside the volcano’s caldera.

This is an “acid lake” inside the volcano’s caldera.

This one is one of the most active Kamchatka volcanoes. 

And this one is the tallest active volcano in Europe and Asia. It’s almost 5 km tall.  

Some more volcanoes.

That’s not dust on the road, that is volcanic ash. It doesn’t settle until a long time after a car has passed on the road.

A ferry boat from one side to another, and a volcano.

Volcano in the mirror too. Whenever you go to Kamchatka you will probably be able to see those huge fire-throwing mountains, so that’s why it attract tourists, it doesn’t matter that you have to fly for 10 hours to get here from Moscow.

Again, thanks to Denis for his story and photos!
