Gorely Volcano's caldera

The powerful, elemental landscapesurrounding your base camp between Gorely and Mutnovsky volcanoes is an ever-shifting, steaming warp of dry ash and scattered volcanic rock over surreal flows of solid lava. Suck in the pure air and be awed by the dynamic nature of the earth: here in Kamchatka, creation is a daily, tangible occurrence where volcanoes spew, mud pools bubble and sparkling glaciers inexorably grind the mass to moraine and fertile lowland soil. With a chain of craters, bursts of seasonal wildflowers, and populations of large marmots, camping on Gorely is full immersion in the geological and biological wonders of the region at its pristine, alien best.
