# 119 The Bear Kingdom
(Kurilskoye lake)

The Bear KingdomWe are delighted to offer you an exotic route to the inimitable and undisturbed Kurilskoye Lake, which is located in the area of the Yuzhno - Kamchatsky Preserve. Kuril Lake was included into the List of World Heritage in 1996. The lake has a volcanic nature, as it occupies the volcanic caldera. The surface of the lake is 76 sq. km. The depth is 330 m. Two impressive volcanoes cones (Kambalny and Ilinsky) that frame the Lake create a captivating view. Whimsical capes and scenic islands make it even more beautiful.  It is one of the most large-scale salmon-spawning grounds in Kamchatka. The abundance of fish in the lake attracts the brown bears. The viewing platforms are built on the territory of the lake where the tourists can observe the amazing bears' fishing. The excursions are held to watch the salmon run and bird colonies.

The Tourist Lodge at Travyanoy Point accommodates 18 people in double-occupancy and four person rooms. The accommodation is possible all the year round. Also we are pleased to offer you a cheaper  variant of  accommodation on the Kuril Lake – with the overnight at tents on the Istok Point.
On the way we fly over five volcanoes of Southern Group: Viliuchinsky (2175 m), Gorely (1829 m), Mutnovsky (2324 m), Ksudach (900 m), Zheltovsky (1953 m).
