Day 1. We meet early in the morning at the appointed place. Jeep ride to Kurile Lake on the shore of the Sea of Okhotsk
Early in the morning we set out on the way to the Kurile Lake. There are no roads here, so our transport will be a specially prepared jeep, a vehicle of high cross-country ability, which easily overcomes mountain passes and mountain rivers. The route goes along the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk. We will make stops along the seashore, in the river mouths and other beautiful places to have a rest, take pictures, have a snack and watch the animals.
At the crossing on Ozernaya river we will be met by the inspectors of the South Kamchatka Federal Reserve named after Tikhon Shpilenka. It is forbidden for the cars to enter the territory, so we will load our luggage into the boats and walk the remaining 13 km to the Kuril Lake, on our way we will see the famous pumice stone rocks of Kutkha Baty and learn the legend about the god Kutkha. (those who don't want to walk can go by boat all the way to the ranger station).
After settling into a cozy cabin at the Travyanoy ranger station and the obligatory briefing, we go to observe the bears that roam the trails just outside the stationfence.
