Banniye Hot Springs
At 7 a.m. we leave Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to the place where we change to snowmobiles. After getting safety instructions we go to the mountain range of the volcano Vachkazhets. We cross a series of small lakes and drive 3 km to the frozen lake Tohkoloch at the foot of Vachkazhets. We drink tea listening to the guide’s stories, admire the winter mountain landscape, take pictures and move to the Banniye hot springs by snowmobiles.
There we are accommodated in tourist lodges, have dinner, bathe in natural springs. In winter, Banniye springs are especially beautiful: steam from hot water rises and forms lacy hoarfrost on tree branches. What a fabulous look!
