Kamchatka, Russia

I have two Kamchatka cards, and here is the first one...


The Kamchatka Peninsula has a high density of volcanoes and associated volcanic phenomena, with 19 active volcanoes being included in the six UNESCO whs list, in the Volcanoes of Kamchatka group, most of them on the this Peninsula.

The card above shows and aerial view of the crater of the volcano Uzon.

Uzon Volcano is located in eastern Kamchatka. It contains the largest geothermal area in Kamchatka. Uzon and Geyzernaya calderas contain boiling springs, gas-steam jets, mudpots, small mud volcanoes, hot and cold lakes.
