This is the unique opportunity to see the tremendous impact of the famous fissure eruptions of the Plosky Tolbachik volcano! You will climb the huge crater of this volcano and see bright-red cones, hardened volcanic bombs, odd-shape lava flows, scoria areas with a wild play of colours and Dead Forest. All this is surrounded by the magnificent and unpredictable volcanoes!
