Moving 40 km on real off-road. We pass Mount Kopyto. We set up a tent camp or stay for the night in the house of the natural park. Dinner. If the weather is good and the group will be there by 19:00, then an evening excursion to a small amazing lake, in which volcanoes are reflected in the sunset illumination - the giants of the north: Klyuchevskaya Sopka, Kamen, Plosky and Sharp Tolbachiki.
Hot coffee. Photoshoot on the shore of the lake before dawn. Breakfast. Hiking in the canyon of the Studena River (8 km one way). Fanciful stone reliefs and huge stone balls, as if hanging on the head, are the result of the grinding of volcanic rocks by the waters of a mountain river, held by stone banks. Lunch in the canyon. Return to camp. Dinner.
Early departure to Shiveluch volcano. The volcano is in an active phase and for the second decade it has been disturbing the surrounding forest dwellers with ash emissions, lahars and earthquakes. Lunch on the "dry" river flowing down the slope of the volcano. It becomes a powerful full-flowing river in rainy weather or during active snow melting on the volcano, then it dries up. Photo session at the foot of the volcano.
Transfer to the Apakhonchich volcanologists station, located at the foot of the highest active volcano in Eurasia, Klyuchevskaya Sopka. Walk at the foot of Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano (4750 m).
