There are 27 tourist routes on its territory.


The Kamchatka authorities plan to transfer the Kamchatka Volcanoes Nature Park, which includes four specially protected natural areas, where 15 active and more than 100 extinct volcanoes are located, to the federal jurisdiction. This was reported on Wednesday on the website of the regional government.

"The President of the Russian Federation [Vladimir Putin] supported my proposal related to the fact that we need to strengthen work on the Volcanoes of Kamchatka, attract federal funding and federal support. Natural parks of regional importance in the Kamchatka Territory: "Bystrinsky", "Yuzhno-Kamchatsky", "Nalychevo", "Klyuchevskoy" occupy a huge territory, and the forces and means that exist do not objectively correspond to the tasks that stand. This is due, among other things, to the increasing tourist load," the head of the region, Vladimir Solodov, is quoted in the message.

Solodov noted that in connection with the recent events - the death of tourists on the Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano, it is necessary to divide the clusters under the management of Kamchatka Volcanoes and transfer them to federal jurisdiction. In his opinion, this will allow the development of tourist infrastructure and ensure greater safety on the routes. "This issue was discussed at the level of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation, Alexander Kozlov supports this decision," the head of the region added.

The most famous volcanoes are located in the specially protected natural territories included in the Volcanoes of Kamchatka Nature Park: Avachinskaya and Mutnovskaya hills, Gorely, Tolbachik and Klyuchevskaya Sopka, as well as thermal springs and the largest glaciers of the peninsula, lava fields and waterfalls. There are 27 tourist routes on the territory of the park.
