Bakening, seen here from the north, is located NW of Petropavlovsk, near the headwaters of the Srednaya Avacha River and well to the west of the eastern volcanic range of Kamchatka. Lava lava domes formed at the base and about 8,500-8,000 years ago the summit collapsed and produced a large debris avalanche to the SE.
