The Gorely volcano is an active volcano on the south of Kamchatka. Its height is 1829 m. The volcano is famous for its various craters, there are about 30 of them. Some are filled with acid, some contain fresh water, and all of them are incredibly beautiful. Once on the spot of the Gorely there was an ancient volcano with a foundation diameter of 25 km. Later its central part sank and formed a ring of the craters, which erupted and overlapped each other. During the tour we will show you a grand creation, to build which nature has spent thousands of years!
