Description

    The Goreliy is a chief member of the Mutnovsko-Gorelovskya volcanic group which only 75 km to the south of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy. The active volcano has got a chain of 11 craters. There are numerous lakes, fumaroles and about 40 side cones with lava flows nearby. The top of the volcano reaches up to 1829 m. The volcano has emitted only ash and smoke since the beginning of the 19th century. Every crater has got its own, often poetic name - "Western", "Active", "Bowl", "Blue Lake", etc. Scientists believe that the volcano got its name because ages ago it threw out a great amount of lava that is stark now. Some lava flows are 9 or 15 km lengthwise. No one has ever been disappointed with this remarkable tour.
