Ski touring at the Vilyuchinsky Volcano
Just yesterday we’ve met with Vilyuchinsky, and today we will conquer it! We drive to the foot of the volcano and climb to the top to a height of 2175 m. The climb lasts 4–7 hours, depending on the level of the group. Ice axes, crampons and incredible efforts will be used, but when we reach the top, the beauty of snowy Kamchatka will make you forget about fatigue.
There are two ways to descend: the route of the previous ascending or down the south-western slope. The second option is more difficult and dangerous, it requires a high level of physical training. The decision on which one to choose will be made by guides based on the level of the group.
In the evening we return to the base, bathe and rest.
