Kamchatskaya Oblast' Things to Do: 12 reviews and 12 photos
This is something you must absolutely do if you go to Kamchatka: take a helicopter ride!! Even if it is expensive, it is well worth it! You will have an unforgettable experience of stunning and grandiose landscapes, close-up of all types of volcanoes, fly-by rivers and lakes...
If you go to Uzon Caldera and Geyser Valley, the only way is by helicopter from Petropavlovsk, so you can't escape it!
The picture shows the crater of volcano Maly-Semiachik , one of the most spectacular I have seen because of its light blue colored lake. This is due to very tiny particles of silica and sulfur in suspension in the lake with the sunlight reflecting and refracting on them. By the way, you do not want to have a swim in this lake, or even take a boat ride; it is extremely acid (PH = 1!!)... you, your boat or anything would burn and dissolve right away!!! This is an "eye-only" lake...
