PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, July 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The month of silence ended in the Kamchatka Geyser Valley on Saturday and regular tours resumed, the Kronotsky Biosphere Reserve administration reported.
The access of tourists to the Geyser Valley was limited on May 21 in order not to disturb animals and birds in the mating season.
Tourists are brought to the Geyser Valley by helicopter. The ban aimed to protect mountain sheep, brown bears and numerous bird species.
Another reason for suspending the tours was the unsteady snow blanket on the route. Snow was melting intensively, which could have caused a landslide and a lift of water in the Geisernaya River.
Experts say the Kamchatka territory has a high tourist potential. Mild snowy winters make it possible to develop downhill skiing. Thermal springs and nature parks, among them the Geyser Valley, recognized as one of Russia’s seven wonders in 2008, are of great interest for tourists. The Geyser Valley opened to tourists on July 25, 1941.
