In total, there are about three hundred fire-breathing mountains here, so it is not surprising that volcanic eruptions and related processes occurring at depth (primarily thermal springs and geysers) form a local landscape.  
  It is on Kamchatka is the brother of Yellowstone. The open caldera is a giant oval stretching for about 35 kilometers. It begins in the upper reaches of the Paratunka River and ends behind the Bath thermal springs. These sources, in particular, are heated by the heat of the ancient super volcano. The eruption last occurred about 1.5 million years ago. With a strong burst of seismic activity, to date, constantly growing, it can awaken and inflict enormous losses to the flora, fauna and life of people. Recently, several volcanoes have already “woken up” in Kamchatka, such as: Kizimen and Shiveluch.
