Kuril lake is a huge freshwater reservoir, which arose in the caldera of the volcano more than 8,000 years ago. It is the largest spawning ground for sockeye salmon, the Pacific salmon, in Eurasia. The abundance of fish attracts dozens of brown bears. They go out to the shore of the lake, catch fish, eat it and even fight with each other in front of astonished tourists. Kuril Lake is a part of the South Kamchatka sanctuary and its inhabitants are protected. Bears are accustomed to people and do not pay attention to the tourists, so you can observe their behavior from a distance of several meters.
