The Tops of Kamchatka

We are delighted to offer You one of the most difficult sports route for the skilled mountaineers and those tourists who can challenge an extreme environment conditions and the one who is ready to experience getting to the highest and the most difficult tops of The Kamchatka peninsular.

The itinerary:

1 day. Transfer from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy town to Esso village or Kozyrevsk village (approximately 550 km.), overnight stop in the local hotel.

2 day. Helicopter transfer to the area of Vulkanologov pass(3200 m. height), setting the camp and acclimatization.

3 day. Climbing to Kluchevskaya Sopka volcano.

4 day. Preparatory day for the ascent to Kamen volcano. It is important to keep in your mind that Kamen volcano is regarded as the most difficult volcano of the Kamchatka peninsular. Before ascent it the instructor is to make sure that the whole group is prepared. Thereupon a number of physical trainings are to be held on the slope of the volcano.

5 day. Climbing to Kamen volcano.

6 day. An extra day for the case of bad weather or transfer to Esso village. Weather in Kamchatka is very unstable, especially in mountain regions, that is why one needs slack time waiting for “a flying weather”. This time one can spend in Esso village, or these days can be used for overpass to the place of ascent (from Kluchi village).

7 day. A visit to the museum and Bystrinsky Nature Park center. Transfer: Esso village - Kluchi village - Podkova mountain (meaning “a hoof).

8 day. Rafting on Bystraya river /an overpass to Podkova mountain – it is a plateau between Ushkovsky and Kluchevskoy volcanoes (2600 m.).

9 day. A visit to Koryakskiy cattle-camp “Chau-Chiv” or the Even one called “Menendek”, an overpass to Vulkanologov pass.  In case of nasty weather in the end of the tour a trekking to Kluchi village is possible. An overpass takes 2 days.

10-11 day. An overpass to Kluchi village.

12 day. Transfer to Petropavlovsk town.

One should take into consideration that Kluchevskaya Sopka volcano is active and eruptions take place on average one time a year (sometimes more often). While an active period of eruption so called “volcanic bombs” and lava come out of the crater and all that makes the ascent dangerous. Observation itself is worthwhile getting there, still it is better to watch it from safety place (for example from the slopes or tops of Ushkovskiy or Kamen volcanoes).
