Siberia Trekking - discover Russian nature
Trekking to Kamchatka. Tolbachik circle 2018.
Kamchatka is a truly wild and beautiful area of the Earth. Magnificient volcanic landscapes are combined with ocean shore. There is a home for bears, foxes, wolverines and marmots.
Tolbachik is a volcanic complex on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the far east of Russia. It consists of two volcanoes, Plosky (flat) Tolbachik (3085 m) and Ostry (sharp) Tolbachik (3682 m), which as the names suggest are respectively a flat-topped shield volcano and a peaked stratovolcano
There was rainy and cloudy day. We reached camping place and started to set up tents when we saw bear, feeding berries.
