Kronotsky volcano, an 11,975-foot volcanic peak overlooking the Kronotsky State Biosphere Reserve in eastern Kamchatka, rises over a wild area that has been protected since czarist times. Kamchatka has more than 120 volcanoes, about 20 of which are periodically active; the highest approaches 16,000 feet. Part of the "Ring of Fire," a string of active volcanoes encircling the Pacific from South America around to New Zealand, these mountains retain snow even in summer.
