If the weather permits, we will be able to fly into the Mutnovsky volcano crater and land for a short walk.In winter it is a good place for alpine skiing and snowboarding. In the south-east part of the foot there are hot springs. In summer there is a beautiful forty meters waterfall at the foot. The top of the volcano is cut on the western part and on its top the huge rocks elevate, separated by accumulation of ice and granular snow. Lava and pyroclastics which make these rocks are changed in variegate colors, possibly, by the fumaroles activity not so long ago.

The space of the upper ones is filled with ice and granular snow.Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
