  • Walked 14 days under backpacks on the Sile fine edge. Kamchatka is beautiful! Traveler, much less tourist-pohodniku there should definitely visit. We seemingly saw everything: and bears and Wolverines, and volcanoes, and the ocean, and geysers, and hot springs, and mists such that for an outstretched arm can not see anything, and weather, such that the thought of such and does not happen: hurricane wind, knocking off their feet and breaking tents, freezing rain ... Kamchatka has been to demonstrate their wealth. For tourists: smarter move there instead of walking vahtovkami. The road there is good. Be sure to look for local guides. With no local teams have a lot of problems. And for climbing grab your goggles and respirator or FMP. From bears helps vinegar. Kamchatka, I love you.

  • Kamchatka is an unusual place on Earth. Here and thermal springs, and ocean and the most fascinating is the volcanoes. For the first time visited volcanoes. Impressive. This is my first encounter with them. I want to go back again.

  • Kamchatka is the real "land's end" ordinary man. Do not neglect this opportunity.
