Kutkhiny Baty is an unique and weird valley made of light and whitish pumice stone.
This is how famous "Kutkhiny Baty", "obelisks" made of pumice and resembling gigantic canoes left to dry, look like from a helicopter. Each "boat" is approximately 16 stories tall.
The Kamchatka Peninsula is a 1,250-kilometre-long peninsula in the Russian Far East, with an area of about 270,000 km². It lies between the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Sea of Okhotsk to the west.
The origin of the pumice stone in the valley is not fully understood. It is thought to have formed when a volcanic eruption occurred in the area millions of years ago. The eruption spewed out a large amount of pumice stone, which was then deposited in the valley.
