Вулкан Перетолчина (gector)
Hill is named after the explorer Sergei Pavlovich Peretolchina who died not far from the volcano under mysterious circumstances. No one still can not determine the cause of his death. On the hill itself is a huge cone-shaped mound composed of different rocks. Basically there are andesites and basalts. Mixed in with the rock are slags, volcanic dust and ashes.
At the top of the hill a huge crater depth of 30 meters with a diameter of about 140 meters. The bottom of the depression takes a little cold lake. Its parameters are very small, about 10 meters in width. But it is completely filled with a variety of rare species of organisms bacteria, fry and crustaceans.
As for the slopes, they completely overgrown with vegetation. There's not only the grass and shrubs, but also quite tall trees. Very original look of pine, spruce and fir grow at an angle of 30 degrees. And they are well accustomed not only on the outer slopes volcano, but also in the interior.
