World > Eurasia > Kamchatka

The Kamatchka Peninsula is billed potentially as "Russia's Yellowstone". The peninsula is home to 414 glaciers, more than 100 volcanoes, 29 of them active, 20 climate zones, 300 geysers and 100,000 lakes. The peninsula is home to five parks and reserves on the UN's natural heritage list. It was opened to the world after the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union and "in theory" is a "source of vital tourist income."
