*These photos with the eruption of Kluchevskoy volcano were taken in 2016, it's being erupting from time to time, but we can't guarantee that you will see the same picture in 2017.

Day 3 Today our target is to reach Kluchevskoy nature park and the region of Tolbachik volcano, it's famouse for eruptions which took place in 1975 and 2012-2013, now this area looks like a great volcanic desert with still hot slag craters and fascinating "Dead forest".

We settle a camp close to Tolbachik volcano in the volcanic desert, altitude of the camp is 1700 meters above the sea level, it could be quite cold and windy, there is the lack of water here. From now and on we live in tents by two.

When the camp is ready we can walk along solid lava flows of 2012-2013 eruption, here lava formed different beautifull shapes, many slag cones around, moon like sceneries.

Day 4 1 hour driving by car and we are in the "Dead Forest" - it was destoyed by ash cloudes in 1975. Then we go up one of the slag cones (300 meters height), the ground is still hot somewhere, great views on the desert and Tolbachik volcano. In the evening we go back to our camp.

Day 5 Tourists in a good physical condition can go to the top of Plosky Tolbachik volcano (3081 meters above the sea level). Wonderfull views and very big crater with steep walls on the top. Ascending taket the whole day, about 18 kilometers to go there and back. Alternate program - not so difficult walks along solid lave fields to new lave caves and slag cones, about 4-6 kilometers to go.
