Tourist flow to the Valley of Geysers has grown by 60% this year. The number of visitors to the natural site has reached a historic maximum and amounted to eight thousand people.

This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko at a meeting with the Governor of Kamchatka Vladimir Solodov. Next year, the circular tourist route Petropavlovsk - Milkovo - Valley of Geysers - Zhupanovo will be launched in test mode. The paths in the reserve have been repaired, new paths and sites have been prepared.

As noted by Solodov, by the next season, at the expense of the federal budget and funds from investors, the construction of new guest houses, additional trails and related tourist infrastructure will be completed. The Ministry of Natural Resources has allocated funds for the creation of additional helipads in the Valley of Geysers.

As reported by IAA EastRussia, in May the head of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin instructed Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko fly to the Valley of Geysers after the reaction of Vladimir Putin to his statement about tourists. Chernyshenko had to personally deal with the development of mass tourism in Kamchatka, in particular in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve, where the Valley of Geysers is located.

Earlier, Vladimir Putin suggested preparing the Valley of Geysers in Kamchatka for mass visits. The president voiced the proposal after Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko said that visits to the Valley of Geysers could not be open to the masses, as tourists there "everyone will trample".

Following a trip to the region, Chernyshenko said that the price of tours to the Valley of Geysers in Kamchatka could be reduced by three times... For this, it is necessary to optimize tourist routes. At present, it costs 45 thousand rubles to fly to the Valley of Geysers for visitors; for residents of the peninsula, a ticket costs 35 thousand rubles.
