Photo Gallery

A broad lava flow descends from the summit crater down the southern flank of Vysoky ("High") volcano, which is located about 4 km NE of Komarov volcano. Vysoky (also spelled Vysokii) appears to be the northernmost Holocene vent of the Eastern subduction-related volcanic belt of Kamchatka. Vysoky volcano has been active from the beginning of the Holocene until at least about 2000 radiocarbon years ago, when it produced the lava flow seen in this photo.
