The glacier-filled southern summit crater of Mutnovsky is seen here from the NE with Asacha in the distance. This crater is within a larger 1.5 x 2.1 km wide crater with walls 50-250 m high. Four smaller craters are on the northern rims of the summit crater complex. A steam plume rises from the historically active crater on the western rim of northern Mutnovsky crater.
