Kurile Lake is located in the southern part of the peninsula on the territory of the South Kamchatka Reserve. The lake itself is a caldera, is of volcanic origin, and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.


On the one hand, the majestic Ilyinsky volcano, which has an almost perfect shape, looks at the lake. During eruptions, its lava flows descended directly into the Kuril Lake, changing the landscape and creating picturesque coves and bays. In the center of the lake there is a rocky island Heart of Alaid, very similar in shape to the heart, and on the islands in the middle of the lake there is one of the largest colonies of the slaty-backed gull in freshwater.

12 AUGUST. KURIL LAKE. KUTKHINY BATY


Breakfast.


Walking tour to Kutkhin Baty.


In the area of ​​Kurilskoye Lake, there is a geological object, amazing in its structure and beauty - Kutkhiny Baty. These are monumental pumice formations that appeared at a time when, during frequent volcanic eruptions, acidic, saturated with gases, lava rose to the surface of the earth and cooled, forming a porous rock. Over time, the rocks, undermined by wind and water, acquired their current shape.


An interesting and unusual shape of the rocks is explained in the legend of the indigenous people of Kamchatka - the Itelmens. Once the wise raven Kutkh left his boats on the shore to dry and forgot about them. For the Itelmens, the raven Kutkh was the main god, and the word "bat" was used to refer to a long boat. Therefore, “Kutkhins Baty” can be translated as “Boats of the God Kutkha”.
