Gorely Volcano, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

Gorely is a volcano located in the southern part of Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia. It consists of five overlapping stratovolcanoes and is one of the most active in southern Kamchatka. Gorely is a large, long-lived shield-type volcano that is currently in an eruptive phase. Prior eruptions occurred in 1980-81 and 1984-86.Several complexes compose the overall volcanic structure: - ancient Pra-Gorely volcano which measures 20–25 km in diameter; - a 12 km diameter caldera; - thick stratum of ignimbrites totaling a volume of 100 km3; - post-caldera eruption cinder cones; - modern edifice – “Young Gorely” composed of three large superimposed cones and 11 associated craters forming a NW-SE trending intra-caldera ridgeline; - a complex of 40 modern subsidiary cones on the slopes of “Young Gorely”.In 2010, activity began to increase, suggesting the Volcano was waking up. The Aviation Color Code has been raised to Yellow, and a new vent has been discovered on the inner South east wall of the crater

  • Most "touristy" than the Murnovsky volcano, inside the little tourism in the area, but very attractive. Rise of certain hardness but with a well marked and affordable way

  • About 4km one way with elevation of 700m from the bottom of the volcano. Easy route. Great views with volcano lake and panorama view of the mountain range from the top.  more »
  • Accession, much of the stretch is easy, (the last 500m are something more descent), but the views are spectacular. It is not advisable to climb if there is snow or rain.
