Accessible only to scientists and to a small number of tourists a year who pay high figures for a tour of just one day, the reservation of Kronotski is an inhospitable place and many unexplored corners, land of many mountains and volcanoes, valleys geysers, hot springs, a perfect kingdom for bears in the wild, a landscape “magic” to this day just walked by a privileged few.
Kronotski is a nature reserve located in the Russian Far East, an area south of the coast of the peninsula of Kamchatka. Beauty exceeds the reserve area, a region dotted with volcanoes over 3,000 meters high and low valleys, many species of plants and wildlife. The postal Kronotski and south of the peninsula complete with geysers and hot springs in some areas take on a ghostly vapor emission.
The bears are found primarily in the area of Lake Kurilskoye, a paradise lost, between marshes and sunny meadows, guarded by sea eagles at the foot of hot springs. In the area, hundreds of bears capable of weighing half a ton are living in the wild.
The Valley of the Geysers, within the reserve, has the second largest concentration of geysers in the world, in an area of 6 km long spring where dozens of columns of steam and hot springs. Some of the geysers throw columns of over 25 meters high every few hours.
Usually described as the Land of Ice and Fire, the contrasts of this desolate region are difficult to describe, almost as if it were an enchanted land. A dazzling in trip to the Mutnovsky volcano should certify this.
The volcano Mutnovsky is known for its fumaroles, sulfur deposits and craters, a difficult point to reach, that leads us to confirm that the area of the reserve and its surroundings is a true lost world.
