Trekking to Mutnovskiy volcano/ "Opasniy" canyon

Trekking the active volcano Mutnovskiy (2323 m), one of the most active in Kamchatka, is a spectacular trip that is breathtaking. The activity of volcano is mainly expressed by fumarole activity with the release of a huge amount of energy in the form of emissions of volcanic gases and many hot springs.

This is one of the largest geothermal deposits in the world. Not far from Mutnovskiy volcano there is eponymous Mutnovskaya geothermal power station, one of the best in the world in terms of automation.

After climbing you will walk to the picturesque waterfall in the Opasniy (Russian word for “dangerous”) canyon. The river originating from snowfields and glaciers on the slope of the volcano forms a powerful waterfall 80 meters high and falls into a deep canyon.
