Columnar Landscape of Cape Stolbchaty on Kunashir Island

Cape Stolbchaty is located in the east of Kunashir Island in the Sakhalin region. It consists of layers of basaltic lava of Mendeleev volcano with a well defined columnar jointing in the form of 5- and 6-sided columns.

As a result of erosion, volcanic rocks are gradually destroyed forming spectacular, 40-50 meter high cliffs. Thanks to its unique and picturesque landscape, this cape is a popular tourist site. Cape Stolbchaty on Google Maps. Photos by: lusika33.
