Transfer to Tolbachinsky Dol
Early in the morning we leave for Tolbachinsky Dol — a hill with a large number of slag cones that adjoins Plosky (Flat) Tolbachik. The road will take all day, there will be a stop for lunch on the way. We’ll drive an off-road car, because real all-terrain vehicles are required to get to remote areas of the peninsula.
12 kilometers from Tolbachinsky Dol there is Dead Forest, we will see it the next day. The forest got its name after it was covered with a cloud of hot ash during the Great Fissure Eruption of 1975. All vegetation was burnt out, only the skeletons of the strongest trees remained.
In Soviet times there was a base for moon rovers testing.
After rest and dinner at Tolbachinsky Dol we move to Severniy Proriv (Northern Break) and stay the night by its bottom.
