The last time this saddle-shaped volcano erupted was about 50 thousand years ago. It is one of the best preserved extinct volcanoes in the entire world. There are 72 grottoes in the piles of igneous rocks.
The road to the crater of the volcano is lined with volcanic magma. The crater itself is protected by a railing and is equipped with an observation deck from which you can look inside the volcano.
The neck of the boat – it's frozen lava overgrown with forests and bushes. All this is arranged as a geological park. There is a restaurant at the foot of the volcano, and in front of the restaurant there is a stage where performances take place in the evenings.
