Cape Stolbchaty on Kunashir Island - Destination:Russia

We will watch more wonders of Nature at Stolbchaty Cape. It seems that Nature itself tried to adorn this place with fantastic formations: volcanic activity has turned nearby rocks into "stone organ". The surface of the cape is covered with stark and cracked lava, amazingly looking like a cobblestone pavement.

Facing the coast of Japan, Cape Stolbchaty shows you its striking cliffs.

Iturup, is the other island in the Kuriles which can be reached by air from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. It is the largest Kurile Island and belongs to the Kurilsky District. It consists of volcanic massifs and mountain ranges. Its high cliffs are precipitous. The most prominent peaks are The Stokap Mountain (1634 m) and Bogdan Khmelknitsy (1589 m). Active volcanoes are Atsunupuri and Berutaruba situated in the south of the island.
