You can either walk from the village Pauzhetka en route to the peaks of Koshelev volcano , or — just the opposite — walk from the same volcano en route to Pauzhetka. So you see: all roads lead to and from Pauzhetka. Accordingly, this post is dedicated to the small yet significant — and most curious — village of Pauzhetka…. To get there in a regular road car is probably impossible.

Just try Google photos of Koshelev Volcano: my photos are the first to be shown! And for the serious explorer-expeditioner-climber, the volcanoes are just too easy to conquer:.
What is Geothermal Energy?
What altitudes did you get up to then? Er… and meters. First, these are greenhouses supplied with as much free hot water as needed all year round. Second, the soil here is super fertile volcanic soil packed with mega-doses of the minerals fruit and veg love. Not only do the tomatoes look amazing — they taste it too! It all reminds me of the greenhouses in Iceland where they grow bananas — also using thermal waters:.
