Arrival to the foot of the Mutnovsky volcano
Start of ascending

Before ascending we drink tea and get instructions. The ascent to the crater is simple: it takes 2–3 hours and fits tourists of any physical training. You will see everything worth seeing without climbing to the top of the volcano, as the largest and most beautiful crater is located at a height of 1600 meters – a little above the middle of the slope.

On the way, we stop to have a rest, look at landscapes, admire volcanoes Gorely, Opala and Asacha, towering in the distance.

Excursion into the crater
Lunch

Passing through the tectonic fault we get to the crater. We look at fumarole grounds, a gas pillar of 1000 m height, an azure lake, the "Active funnel” crater. The slopes are full of colors: acid yellow sulfur deposits, black and red mudpots, white steam clouds and sky-blue glaciers! We enjoy the views and have lunch.

15:00

Trekking to the waterfall in the Dangerous canyon

On the way back we come to the Dangerous canyon. The canyon is located in the Vulkannaya river valley, flowing through the fault of the northern crater. The river rushes on the former lava channel and falls from a height of 80 meters forming a waterfall. We take pictures and return to the base camp.
