After its eruption on April 24, 2016, the giant Kliuchevskoi stratovolcano has erupted again on May 3, 2016 as shown in the pictures below.
Klyuchevskaya’s first recorded eruption occurred in 1697, and it has been almost continuously active ever since.
It was first climbed in 1788. No other ascents were recorded until 1931, when several climbers were killed by flying lava on the descent.
Klyuchevskaya Sopka is considered sacred by some indigenous peoples, being viewed by them as the location at which the world was created.
Other volcanoes in the region are seen with similar spiritual significance, but Klyuchevskaya Sopka is the most sacred.
