Eruption of Tolbachik Volcano Part 3 July 2013
A regular visit to the Eruption of Tolbachik Volcano allowed to fully appreciate its scale. The relief in the area of the eruption has undergone tremendous changes. At the site of the road, on which tourists were brought higher to climb Plosky Tolbachik, a new cone, about 200-300 meters high, grew.
If in February the lava flow was moving along the western slope, now it is moving eastward threatening to reach the forest border and provoke a huge fire that will be very difficult to put out, since there are no roads to that area.
It was not difficult to find the exit of fresh lava to the surface. It was only necessary to walk along the frozen stream and focus on the hot air from the lava river on the surface.
About two o'clock we watched the movement of the lava.
An attempt to photograph how the lava absorbs the camera Canon 350D was not crowned with special success, but the device still melted and burned)
An attempt to look into the very mouth of the active crater also failed.After rising to the edge of the crater on the east side and seeing how the bombs fall a meter away from me, I did not dare to go further.
Lava from the active crater flows along the "Turbe" and appears on the surface only five kilometers from the crater, but in several places the "Pipe" has great dips looking at which you can see the lava river.
When have you not been, have you seen an underground lava river with a “waterfall”? ))
The main activity of tourists on the eruption occurs at night, when the eruption appears in all its glory.
