The unique Geyser Valley in Russia’s Kamchatka has been hit by a powerful mudslide on Sunday
The unique Geyser Valley in Russia’s Kamchatka has been hit by a powerful mudslide on Sunday and is closed for tourists, sources from the regional department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations told Tass on Monday. Specialists will fly on a helicopter to the valley on Monday to assess the scope of the damage and a possible aftermath of the calamity for the valley. The bed of the Geizernaya River has been partially blocked by the mudslide, as a result of which a new lake can emerge in the Geyser Valley. According to eyewitnesses, the flow of mud and rock has changed the landscape in the lower part of the valley. Observation sites for tourists, a landing site for helicopters and a house with a diesel power plant were destroyed. Constructions in the upper part of the valley were not damaged. The Geyser Valley is the main attraction of the Kamchatka peninsula. It was opened for tourists in 1991, and over 3,000 people have visited it yearly. Nobody was hurt by the mudslide.
