Edge Of The World. Why Do People Go To Kamchatka?
June 29, 2014 11:23


(Source: http://sverhnews.ru)
Earlier Kamchatka was a completely closed peninsula. It was possible to come here only with residence permit or with the invitation as if you were travelling abroad. Nevertheless, the flow of people for whom "Kamchatka" is not just a word from Tsoi’s song, was never broken off. It is because people tend to divide their lives into periods: before they saw Kamchatka and after.

Direct flight from Moscow is 9 hours (exactly as in opposite direction to New York). And these nine hours can turn upside down the idea of what our country has. The beauty, it will uncover itself immediately after the plane descending from the side of Avachinsky Gulf: the ocean, three volcanoes – Kozelskiy, Avachinskiy and Koryaksky. If the weather is good, then you will see from your chair a several volcanoes whose names you will not be able to keep in mind anyway.

The keyword is "weather". Because all of Kamchatka is surrounded by seas and oceans; if you need a little stable weather go somewhere to Atalasovo, far away from Petropavlovsk, deep into the peninsula. This is probably the only place in Kamchatka, where snow can fall smoothly like a straight line. The appearance of the remaining territory changes – from sun to the fog and rain – much faster than a chameleon on the hunt.

But regardless of the weather on Kamchatka there is always something to do and what to get an unbearable pleasure from. Usual walk around the city, for a person burdened with knowledge of the history causes an amazing feeling: how tiny, actually, is the world and how our ancestors were able to navigate and travel in it. In the downtown Petropavlovsk stands a monument to English seafarer Clark, the one that led Cook's expedition after his death and this small area belongs to Britain until now. The guns of Maksutov battery remind that French and the British also reached here. There can be found traces of the great Russian explorer Bering (Dane from a small town of Horsens, graduated from the cadet corps in Amsterdam). He is buried on Bering Island in the Bering Sea. What threw people to all corners of the world in times of total absence of aircrafts and satellite communication? What lured them into such wilderness like Kamchatka? Now this is one of the most right places for skiers, snowboarders, hunters, fishermen, climbers, especially from those countries that tortured with comfort.



The most recent trend is surfing. If there is anything in the world that is good on Kamchatka, it is wave. Want lower one? There is Avachinskaya Bay. Want a real open ocean? Welcome, here is Khalaktyrsky beach. Not far away stands Khalaktyrsky Airport, which has always been used as a heliport. And it is a true gateway to the treasures of nature. Helicopters of geologists, volcanologists and all of those who need urgently to look into the crater, take off from here. In Kamchatka, there are forty active volcanoes. Kluchevskoy erupts, Bezymyanny erupts, even Avacha, the closest volcano to the city also erupts. Any volcanic eruption is a super show.
