observing volcanic activity
There is Dead Forest at the foot of Tolbachik volcano. Nearby, there is a chain of three cinder cones of Northern Breakthrough from 150 to 330 metres high running north-west along Tolbachik dale. The present landscape of the territory is the result of Big Tolbachik Fissure Eruption in 1975-1976.
There is Shiveluch volcano nearby Klyuchevskaya Sopka. It throws ash belches from 3 to 5 kilometres high which severely disrupts aircraft routes, making them change their direction.
If you are in "The Valley of Seven Giants" in good weather, you can observe seven volcanoes: Ushkovsky, Krestovsky, Klyuchevskaya Sopka, Stone volcano, Sharp Tolbachik, Flat Tolbachik and Oval Ziminoy volcano.
