Mountain range of the Vachkazhets volcano
Bbathing in radon springs
Mountain range Vachkazhets is an ancient volcano that was destroyed thousands years ago by violent eruptions. Since then, the slopes of the mountain turned into a mountain circus, whose peaks are always covered with snow. In one of them there is glacial lake Tahkoloch, from where the river of the same name originates.
The route is simple and suits even an unprepared traveler. The path is immersed in a riot of colors: creeping cedar — from green to brown, gold and pink rhododendrons, red rowan-tree and pale pink spotted lady slipper, all listed in the Red Book. The stone-birch forest changes into alder thickets and goes to mountain tundra. An incredible view of the waterfall at the bottom of Summer Transverse Hill opens from the path. .
After a busy day we have a rest in the healing radon springs.
