Gorelyi volcano is a ridgy array rising from the bottom of the elliptical caldera and is about 1829 meters high. It used to be a shield volcano with a base diameter of about 30 km. With time, the central part sank resulting in the formation of the enormous caldera containing several craters. Nowadays the caldera is surrounded by the remains of the old volcano.
