It can still be found in abundance on the shore of the lake in the form of balls.
The panorama of the lake is unique. It is surrounded on all sides by the majestic cones of volcanoes. The shores and underwater slopes are steep and rocky. Ancient lake terraces are visible on the slopes of the volcanoes. Islands in the form of peaks rise from the bottom, one of the islands, the triangular rock Alaid. The lake is fed by numerous mountain streams mixed with hot spring waters. One weakly freezing river Ozernaya flows out of it. The largest stock of sockeye salmon in Eurasia enters the lake for spawning. At the height of spawning, at the end of summer, the highest concentration of brown bears in the world is observed in the vicinity of the lake. Other animals willingly eat salmon – fox, river otter.
Flight to Ksudach volcano, landing in the crater of the volcano, excursion.

Above opens a beautiful panorama that is rare even for Kamchatka, which is rich in scenic views: a kind of caldera with steep rocky slopes sparkles with multicolored rocks – dark, reddish, light yellow.
The bottom of the caldera has a two-stage structure. Dividing into two almost equal parts – the western one is higher, and the eastern one is occupied by lakes. On the border between them, forming a barrier and a ledge at the same time are located: a small, dark-colored massif Lava dome, next to the same massif of light-colored – The soaring ridge and the Shtiubel crater, extreme from the south.
The entire eastern part of the caldera is occupied by two lakes – Key and Stubel. The key has an oblong shape, 4x2 km in size. It is surrounded on almost all sides by steep walls up to 500 meters high. The lake has no open flow, and the water is filtered through a cofferdam separating it from the Shtubelya lake, which is about 2 km long. From this lake, cutting through the caldera ridge, flows the Teplaya River, which forms a waterfall about 10 meters high a kilometer from the source. At the foot of the Soaring Ridge, on the narrow sandy shore of the lake, streams of the Shtiubelevsky hot springs are beating out. Outcrops of oxen with temperatures up to 70 ° C stretch along the coast for 250 m. Ksudach – one of the most exotic objects in Kamchatka, declared a natural monument of landscape and geological nature.
Flight to the Khodutkinsky springs, lunch, swimming in a hot river.
They are located in a vast meadow surrounded by forest. From scattered griffin funnels, hot water is collected in a stream. Strong streams are also beating out at its bottom and along the banks, and the stream turns into a real river about 30 m wide and up to 1.5 m deep. The water temperature in the griffins reaches 80 ° C, but decreases as it flows. A few hundred meters beyond the clearing, the river flows through a birch forest, beautifully framing its slightly soaring surface with green walls. The temperature in the deepest, but already slightly cooled part of the river is about 42-43 ° C in summer. Khodutka springs are a natural monument.
According to its chemical composition, the water is hydrocarbonate-chloride-sodium with high mineralization (0.5 g / l) and with a silicic acid content of up to 90 mg / l.

Uzon amazes with the richness and form of volcanic manifestations – more than a thousand thermal springs of various sizes, shapes and compositions are concentrated here, including hot lakes and boiling boilers.
The total area of ​​thermal fields is 61 thousand square meters. m.
Unlike the Valley of Geysers, the Uzon caldera with numerous hot springs and fumaroles has been known to the local population for a long time. Among the Kamchadals, this unique natural creation was called the " Burning Valley '', the " Floating Land. ''
There are a large number of warm and non-freezing lakes here. The largest of them – warm non-freezing lake Fumarolnoe and cold Central lake, the attraction is the Dalneye maar lake.
