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

  • Went to the volcano on a snowmobile in the sledges! Views from the top are fascinating and impressive. In addition to the US with her sister tourists there was nobody. And snowboarding from the slope of the volcano, when all the snow is yours-it doesn't even describe in words! Went with Super Guide Andrew (Kamchatka Discovery). Voobshchem Kamchatka winter is beautiful!

  • One of the first eruptions where managed to climb was good company, already at the very top of the US has covered dozhdichkom with hydrogen sulphide.. were plashhiki and we went more or less felicitously. On the way back the Rainbow came out and we were above it. .. views of the whole valley is just awesome.
