The Valley of Geysers

The Valley of Geysers was discovered in 1941 by Tatyana Ivanovna Ustinova. The valley of the Shumnaya river receives with the black steep cliffs and waterfalls ribbons. And in the canyon there are yellow outcrops of the slopes, the winding Geysernaya River on the bottom, the streaming grounds, and the white gushes of the fountains. The geysers are located here for about 5 km along the stream of the Geysernaya River , starting with First Born (Pervenets) and up to Verkhniye geysers of Tripple Waterfall. All geysers are different, they are not alike. Triple geyser is peculiar by its grayish-brown color of the geyserite and by three griffons; Sugary Geyser has the form of a big lily-flower. Giant Geyser Staggers by its mightiness. The wealth of forms and colours of the Valley of Geysers is created not only with the help of the whimsical cliffs and precipices, vegetation, water and steam fountains, waterfalls, and geserite cones but also by the thermofilic algae and bacteria developing in any place, where the jet of water appears.
