Kamchatka Volcanoes are located in the far eastern region of Russia, and are part of the Pacific Ring of Fire – an area in the ocean, with most of the active volcanoes and a lot of earthquakes. It is difficult to say exactly how many volcanoes are located on the Kamchatka peninsula. Various sources mention from a few hundred to more than a thousand volcanoes and they are included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. At present, there are about 28 active volcanoes among them, last erupted about 1000 or even 4000 years ago.
Khodutka – a potentially active volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula, and Priemysh, an extinct volcano, located north-west of the Khodutka volcano, refers to the more ancient formations.
