Arik Volcano

Arik is part of Avachinsky-Koriaksky volcano group made up of 5 volcanoes in the eastern range. It is located in Nalychevo Nature Park included in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List. This complex extinct volcano reaches a height of 2,156 meters. It is attached to Aag volcano (2,310m). The two of them are strongly eroded by glaciers. The south western side is made of steep cliffs and 200 to 400 meters deep ravines. Another ravine is located on the north eastern side of Aag volcano and is quite dangerous because of fallen rocks coming from the summit. On this same side extrusive domes were created as well as cinders and lava cones. On the eastern side of the summit rise damaged basaltic columns that reach 40-50 m and 20-30 m. They are witnesses and indicators of eruptions. The last eruption of Arik volcano is unknown. It attracts many excursions and extreme sports enthusiasts.
