PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, August 8. /TASS/. A tourist from Moscow who went missing three days ago near the erupting Klyuchevskoy volcano on the Far Eastern Kamchatka Peninsula has been found alive, the local emergencies ministry told TASS on Monday.
"This morning the young man descended himself from the height of around 1,000 meters above the sea level from the foot of the Klyuchevskoy volcano. He feels good," a ministry official said.
A group of five tourists - four men and one woman - came from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk and Orenburg. The tourists set a camp at the height of 1,170 meters and three of them continued climbing the volcano. Later one of the tourists who stayed at the camp went missing.
The Klyuchevskoy, also known as the Klyuchevskaya Sopka, is located 360 km to the north-west of the capital of the Kamchatka Territory, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The volcano, which is believed to be about 7,000 years old, has the height of 4,750 meters above the sea level.
The volcano started spewing ash in early April. Scientists say the current volcanic activity is moderate. Apart from being the largest active volcano in Eurasia, it is also the highest mountain in Russia outside the Caucasus. All in all, the Kamchatka peninsula has 29 active volcanoes.
