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.

Ground squirell. These small animals make alarm sounds like birds.

Black-capped marmot (Marmota camtschatica) is endemic to Russia.

We saw few picas. These animals are very common in mountains of Altai and Sayan, but quite rare in Kamchatka
