  • Be on the Kamchatka peninsula and did not climb to the volcano is a crime! Of course, you can choose the options easier than Avacha (e.g. Gorely). But I highly recommend the volcano. View in Nice weather-stunning, words cannot convey. To the right is the "mainland" portion of the Kamchatka peninsula, directly on the left is the Pacific Ocean. Still and mobile communication is almost all the way, you can immediately instagrammy in everyones post))) Preferred visiting hours July-August-beginning of September when the weather is nice. Children can climb a maximum of up to 2000 m, the same concerns and not trained and older people. On (100 meters) begins a very steep climb called "taper". If you believe in yourself-go! On Avaču you can climb on both sides, but I recommend that you Ascend on the left from the pass on the right side of a lot of slag will "slip")))) the usual for such trips-wear: not necessarily "produvajka" with hood + Cap covering the ears. Shoes-comfortable higher and easier with good tread + leggings (aka slag nagrebëte on descent). Trekking poles is very very (!) recommend (very unload sâzočno-cartilage machine!). Sunglasses. Sunblock and chapping. From eating recommend nuts (you can eat without stopping), chocolate and sweets, Salo, termosok with strong sweet) and no alcohol. Water 1.5 liter to 0.5 (3 bottles). Snacking taken once at an altitude of 2000 m, there are makeshift seats. The climb is difficult for non-trained person, try to strictly keep pace for a normal, calm, not pursue someone follow the breath. Rose? Congrats. Be sure to walk around the crater of the volcano in a circle, you won't regret it. Sulphur smell fear not))) Descent most travmoopasnaâ part of the journey. Do not jump, not roll, don't run. Take care of your knees. In a quiet pace with snacks at the dvuške back and forth, took 7:00 on the journey.

  • Raised in Avaču in foggy weather in mid-August. Before the first checkpoint at an altitude of 2000 meters it was all good, then began the most interesting! Neproglâdnyj fog above the snow and strong wind! The last 400 meters-test is not for the faint of heart. There were four moments on top when the fog clears and appeared beautiful panorama overlooking the Karâkskij volcano, for the sake of these moments was worth it all to survive! Reveille I took three hours and all due to the fact that I had no clothes for the weather! I advise to choose weather product, or at least warm and carefully dress plus dry rations nobody! Good luck!

  • If the weather is good and you can see the scenery it is the best day trip you can make. The views are stunning, much better than mutnovski, gorely and others.
