Tyatya Volcano
The Tyatya Volcano - Active volcano on the island of Kunashir of the Great Kuril Ridge, on the territory of the Kuril Reserve.

In geographic terms, Tyatya is a stratovolcano of the somma-vesuvius type (“volcano in the volcano”). The altitude is less than 1800 meters above sea level.

The height of the somma is 1485 m; it has a regular truncated cone with a diameter of 15–18 km at the base and up to 2.5 km at the ring ridge.

The base and the slopes of the volcano are surrounded with pine and deciduous forests with bamboo, thickets of stone birch and cedar woods. In the forests, you can often meet a bear.

The path to the volcano is difficult, but most tourists get to the volcano from Yuzhno-Kurilsk.
