The famous Valley of Geysers is a canyon which has one of the biggest geyser area in the world. It is hidden in a hard access gorge of the Kronotsky Reserve and unrivalled in beauty, landscape grandeur and number of springs throwing out fountains of hot water and steam. Gushing geysers, raging mud cauldrons, a turquoise lake, hot water and steam jets flowing down the slopes together with the lush greenery of grass and trees create a really fantastic sight.

Not far from the Valley of Geysers there is one more unique and impressive place - Uzon caldera. It is a giant cavity with the dimensions 9×12 km, resulting from destruction of the ancient volcano, having an intensive hydrothermal activity on the bottom. There are a lot of boiling and raging craters, numerous mud cauldrons and small volcanoes, yellow fumaroles areas, steamy grounds where the steam and hot water come out from the earth. The peculiarity of this place is the crater-like holes 25-40 m deep and in diameter 25-150 m, in which hot lakes of odd colours are situated.
