The root of Avacha volcano / Verblyud mountain

This trekking tour is fine with those who are not ready for a long and wearing hiking to Avachinsky volcano. You can enjoy beautiful views of Zhupanoskiy, Dzendzur, Koryakskiy, Avacha, Vershinskiy and Vilyuchinskiy volcanoes as well as Pacific ocean and coastal cities.

Verblyud Extrusion is a rock mass with two sharp peaks, a name was given for similarity with the humps of a camel. Apparently, the mountain is either a product of the Koryaksky volcano extrusive activity (when the protruding viscous lava piled on the surface and subsequently froze), or the result of a strong eruption of Avachinsky volcano.

True altitude – 1200 meters above sea level.
