Its kind of inner beauty can be felt by merely stepping into the craters chain situated on its top.

Central part down, forming a caldera 9h14 km, after which the eruption occurred a few craters appearing on the bottom. Craters are superimposed on each other, growing cones merged. This resulted in an array of modern stretched.
          Each of the craters on the top of the volcano has its own characteristics, and together they create a unique ensemble. The most interesting of them:

         Aktivniy is the main place of activity in our time. He has a regular shape with a diameter crater about 250 meters and a depth of about 200 m. The active crater is located acidic lake at the bottom and the walls of the crater fumaroles beat (the outputs of sulfur dioxide).
          At the southern slope of the volcano is flat, covered with slag ground width of about 150 m. In its eastern part is a shallow crater of explosive origin. He has a regular cylindrical shape and is called the «cylinder».
          Further east is the largest and most beautiful crater — «Blue Lake». Its irregularly shaped crater about half a kilometer in diameter, surrounded by steep walls height of 150-200 m. The bottom of the lake occupied by blue, partially landfast ice and floating ice.
          Crater «Chasha» is a very low top right of the cone and is surrounded by a narrow annular ridge. The diameter of the crater about 200 m inner walls of the crater are steep. Earlier in the bottom of a shallow lake was located with the water fiolotovogo shade, now the bottom backfilled with a mixture of slag, ice and snow.
