Photo Gallery


The gently sloping, 1220-m-high Berutarube stratovolcano, seen here from the SE, forms the SW tip of Iturup Island. Wide, deeply dissected glacial valleys cut the flanks of the volcano, and a low saddle on the NE side (far right) separates Berutarube from the slopes of Lvinaya Past caldera. Berutarube was estimated to have ceased erupting within the past few hundred to a thousand years ago, but no confirmed historical eruptions are known. Light-colored fumarolic areas can be seen in the summit crater on the center horizon.
