Mutnovsky Volcano

Mutnovsky Volcano
A.Dyakov

Mutnovsky Volcano Mutnovsky volcano is situated 70 km. south of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. This giant is calm, but showed its power 15 times in the century. The entire massif comprises four cones of volcano.

You will enjoy the unique form and construction of this volcano. Some scientists call Mutnovsky volcano "Somma- Vesuvius". A deep depression surrounded by cliffs lies in the center of the volcano. Glaciers descend from a sheer drop of the terrace along its edge. Volcanic gas and steam clouds are gathered deep in the crater and, slowly creeping along the slopes, rise as a white column.

On the top of this mountain you can see a big snow-white glacier, a little sulfur sandy river and the biggest femoral field in the world. The streams of dangerous gases pull out and break the landscape - so the land is breathing. You meet some sulfur smell, which calls and attracts you go far and far to get know this wonderful and dangerous volcanic massif.
