The Valley of Geysers, one of the largest geyser fields in the world and the only one in Eurasia, is located on Kamchatka in the Kronotsky State Biosphere Reserve. This reserve is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the natural complex "Volcanoes of Kamchatka".
The valley is a deep canyon of the Geysernaya River, in the sides of which over an area of about 6 sq. km there are numerous outlets of geysers, hot springs, mud pots, thermal springs, waterfalls and lakes.
The ecosystem of the Valley of Geysers is unique for the whole country.
Since 1992, here, by agreement with the reserve, organized helicopter excursions. There is a strict system of rules for organizing excursions in order to preserve the balance of the ecosystem.
In 2008, as a result of voting, the Valley of Geysers was included in the list of the seven wonders of Russia.
