Investigating the Nature of the Avachinskiy Volcano

These spitfire mountains can tell you the whole story of wildlife, both bright and mysterious. We’ve selected the most exciting facts about them, so that you could make the more intimate acquaintance of the place before you travel to the Avachinskiy Volcano in Kamchatka:

  • The slopes of the mountains are covered with fumarole vents that let off lots of acrid puffs. The gas temperature in these fumaroles reaches as much as 400°С.
  • Avacha is one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka, this is why it’s frequently referred to as “Fiery”.
  • The diameter of its spiracle is 400 meters. There are many hot springs in this place, as the fumaroles activity inside the volcano never stops.
  • Camel Mountain, known also as “Dvugorbaya” resembles this animal due to its unusual form. It is composed entirely of solid rocks, as old as time.
  • Every year, in summer, locals celebrate the Volcano Day – they organize a feast at the foothill and climb the mountain all together.

During your tours to the Avachinskiy Volcano, you’ll surely meet the primary dwellers of this area – Kamchatka ground squirrels. The most numerous population of these species lives near Avacha Mountain. Interestingly, Kamchatka ground squirrels aren’t afraid of humans – take something tasty and feed the animals right from the hand.
