Avacha Pass, Camel Rock

The rocky extrusion known as Camel Rock rightfully claims the status of an important geological object in Kamchatka. It was created due to fissures occurring near volcano bases. It got its name from two sharp peaks that give it the appearance vaguely resembling a camel. The unique lava extrusion stands between the Avachinsky (2751m) and Koryaksky (3456m) volcanoes, opening a stunning view of both.

Tour programme:

An all-terrain vehicle will take you to the Avacha Pass, covering 45km in three of four hours. The road is also the bed of Dry River.

Your destination is a group of cabins near the base of two volcanoes, Koryaksky and Avachinsky, where the Avacha Pass serves as the boundary of Nalychevo nature park. The Nalycheva river valley and Zhupanovsky volcano (2958m) can be seen from the highest point of the pass.

The most recent ash emission occurred on 13 February 2016. Theoretically, you may witness such an event!

Upon returning to base we will climb the Camel Rock, standing some 200 metres tall and revealing an enthralling view of Avachinsky, Koryaksky, and Zhupanovsky volcanoes. The Vilyuchinsky volcano, located across the Avacha Bay, can also be viewed from there.

Ground squirrels made the vicinity of Camel Rock their home and often visit the tourist cabins, seeking treats. You will get a chance to meet these funny, curious critters.

Lunch outdoors with a view of volcanoes will complete the adventure.
