The Uzon volcano is situated on the South side of Kronotsky lake. Large pot or Caldera was formed about 40,000 years ago. Her education contributed to the serial explosions accompanied by eruptions. The last eruption inside the boiler took place on 8 500 years ago. After the explosion crater with a diameter of 1 km.

The boiler of the volcano Uzon has a diameter of 10 km and is considered to be the biggest Caldera on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Its area is 150 km2. On this square in the thumbnail to see all that the Kamchatka region is the hot springs and mud pots are poisonous, clear lake, cold river which is teeming with fish, birch forest rich in berries, mountains, swamps, animals and birds.

In the Eastern part of the pit, you can observe the largest crater in diameter is 1.65 km it was occupied by a lake. In the Western part of the Caldera finding their “accommodations” numerous swamps and small lakes. Endless rivers and streams that flow into Shumnaya river.
