Now. gradually the surface comes to life: young shoots of trees, shrubs and alpine flowers appear.

Breakfast, continuation on the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk (takes its name from the flowing river - Okhota). One of the first names of the sea was Kamchatka. From the peninsula, the coast is a low surface with black volcanic sand, the coast of which is slightly jagged. The road to Oktyabrsky village crosses the Okhotsk Sea and the Bolshaya River. The sensations are quite particular and exciting, because the journey goes along the road, on both sides of which there is water! Oktyabrsky village meets with its wind farms, joyfully rotating its blades. The crossings, and there will be 3, are made on ferries, which is rarely seen in ordinary life. In the evening, after covering 400 km on various roads, the group settles in the village. Pauzhetka.
Day of rest. Walk to Pauzhetka village. With a visit to the thermal springs of Pauzhet located near the GeoPP of Pauzhetskaya, with mud boilers, pulsating springs, fumaroles; "Valley of the Seven Omuli", "Emerald" waterfall, "Second Life" thermal bath.
The Pauzhetsky springs are located in the river valley. Pauzhetki is a large left tributary of the river. They resemble miniature Geyser Valley sources - the same phenomena, but on a smaller scale. The sources were first described over 200 years ago by Stepan Petrovich Krasheninnikov. He noted that the keys "strike in many places such as fountains, mostly with great noise, a meter and a half tall." It had 2 geysers. With the start of the operation of the GeoES Pauzhetskaya, the activity of the geysers (old and new) has decreased. Externally, the geysers hardly differed from the pulsating sources and, of course, were inferior to the beauty of the geysers of the Geysernaya River. For example, the geyser does not have a new griffin; the water flows from a barely perceptible depression into a rough flood. Its cycle in 1965 was 30 hours; gushing period 45-60 minutes; the width of the boiling column of 0.4-0.5 m; the height of the water emissions is only 20-30 cm. He is obviously young but still a geyser, a direct relative of large and beautiful geysers located in the valley of the Geysernaya River!
On the key site of the Pauzhetian springs there are griffons in continuous boiling which launch jets of boiling water and steam up to a height of 1 m. The springs are surrounded by a thin geyserite crust.
Early morning departure for Lake Kuril, located in the territory of the Southern Kamchatka Federal Reserve, in 1996 included in the UNESCO Natural Heritage List as part of the Kamchatka volcanoes. The walk will take place along the Ozernaya River. Numerous rivers and streams flow into Lake Kuril: Khakitsin, Etamynk, Gavryushka, Vychenkiya, Kirushutk and the Ozernaya River flows into the Okhotsk Sea. On the way to the lake (the path can be transported to the reserve or on foot) stop to visit the observation deck over the river. Lake. The place where the Kamchatka brown bear fishes freely. Another 4 km and six are on Lake Kuril - the largest breeding ground for sockeye salmon in Eurasia, on whose banks you can meet the bears that fish in their natural habitat. With a supplement (payable in cash) It is possible to go to the lake with a boat.
After seeing the bears, you go to the natural monument - Kutkhina bata. These are pumice rocks created by wind, water and volcanic activity. Stepan Petrovich Krasheninnikov, who studied Kamchatka from 1737 to 1741, transmitted the story of Kamchatka Itelmen, who saw huge rock-shaped boats, the bats of the supreme deity Kutha, left to dry, and reminded the Cossack-pioneers of the shuttles. So, "forgotten" boats have been standing here for several thousand years and are waiting for their commander to hit the road along the river to the sea.
