One day trip to Dachnye hot springs
We will meet with a group in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky city. Morning group gathering at about 8:00. We will be transferred to Mutnovsky plateau by the prepared off-road vehicle or Kamaz/Ural vehicle depending on number of participants in a group. It will take about 3-4 hours to reach our destination. The road rarely may be good in this area, and as experienced drivers say that “there is no roads in Kamchatka, there is only directions”.
We will make our first stop at the pass, from where there is a panoramic view of the valley and magnificent Viluchinsky volcano before us.
After reaching the Power station we will have snack and listen to safety instructions from our guide. It’s very important to follow safety rules everywhere because meeting bears is quite often there, and also boiling mudpot poses a danger for people. A hike around fumarole field takes about 1 hour and depends on tourists’ pace.
A trip around Dachnye hot springs and exploring diverse volcanic manifestations: a large mudpot, fumaroles and fuming fountains situated along the slope. The place in the riverbed is fenced so that it creates a place for bathing. It’s time for photo and video shoots.
It’s time to get back to our vehicle. Depending on the itinerary we will be transferred to the waterfall of Spokoyny river where we have lunch and drink tea. We will head back to the meeting point at 19:00-20:30.
