In order to find more about Kunashir Island, you need to get acquinted with its main attractions.
Stolbchatiy Cape. It is impossible to leave the island without visiting this amazing place. Its name bears the meaning that it consists of columns ("stolby" in Russian), which stand close to each other and form vertical walls. The most wonderful thing is that these columns are formed with solidified basaltic lava as a result of volcano eruption.
Caldera of Golovnin volcano. The volcano was named after brave russian traveller, who was digesting the Kuril Islands at the beginning of the XIX century and made 2 trips around the world. His name was Vasiliy Golovnin. The Caldera looks like a cavity with 4 km diameter, which has formed as a result of volcano's collapse at the bottom of the ocean. Two lakes appeared inside the cavity and gas, wet steam and hot water erupt from them.
Fumarole field of Mendeleev volcano. Fumaroles are cracks, through which volcano gases get to the surface with loud pops. They consist of sulfur, which crystallizes and forms yellow lacelike patterns. Incredible and spectaculare view, which is hard to stop looking at!
