Photo Gallery

Voyampolsky (center) and Kakhtana (right-center) are two Icelandic-type shield volcanoes that form the NW-most volcanoes of the Sredinny Range, which stretches across the western side of Kamchatka. The two shield volcanoes, 1225 and 1217 m high, respectively, are located near the headwaters of the Kakhtana River, which extends from the lower right to the upper left of this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top). The two volcanoes were constructed along an E-W line west of the crest of the Sredinny Range.
