September 30, 2018 00:46

Klyuchevsky Natural Park is the youngest park and one of the most beautiful natural parks in Kamchatka. Its territory can be called the land of Fire and Ice. Within its borders there are 12 active volcanoes of the Klyuchevsky group, including one of the highest active volcanoes of Eurasia - Klyuchevsky, and 47 ice-flows, including the largest ice-flows of Kamchatka: Bogdanovich and Erman. 

There is an impressive variety of flora and fauna in the territory of Klyuchevsky park, along with the kilometers of volcanic "lunar" landscapes of frozen lavas, ash and slag.  

Wildlife: there are colonies of black-capped marmots. There are plenty of sables, wolverines, hares; the moose population increases, and the brown Kamchatka bear is the absolute master of this area. Wild ducks, geese, partridges, stone grouses, swans, and Steller's sea eagles nest here. Fish come here for spawning season. The plant world is also diverse, more than 400 plant species characterize all kinds of zonal vegetation in Eastern Kamchatka: from spruce, deciduous and birch forests to alpine meadows, mountain tundra and highlands. 

Location: the park is located 500 km north from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, on the lands of Eastern Kamchatka. 

What to see: 12 active volcanoes are included in the protected zone. The highest  volcano here is Klyuchevskaya Sopka (4750 m). There are also 47 ice-flows. Walking through the area of Kluchevsky Park will be a great pleasure for fans of tracking in the mountains. It attracts tourists with its "lunar" volcanic relief:  frozen lava, ash and slag. Tourists travelling in this park can see how life on the planet was born. Local rivers are rich in grayling and char. And after  registering a license, it is also allowed to fish here.

How to get there: to enter the territory of this natural park it is required to get a permission in the office of Volcanoes of Kamchatka Natural Park and in the regional search and rescue team in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. You can get there from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky by buses, by car or helicopter to Kozyrevsk village or Klyuchi town, located within the Natural Park.
