Dolina Geyserov

Some of the Kamchatka geysers are coming back to life now that the lake formed after a mudslide dammed a river is draining. The World Wildlife Fund reports that several of the geysers are back in full form, although it appears that at least a few of the geysers are lost forever.

This is the best website (in English and Russian) describing with photos and maps what happened at Dolina Geyserov. And here are lots more photos.

It's funny to see article after article repeating that Kamchatka is one of only 5 places in the world where you can see geysers. They're certainly counting Yellowstone, Iceland, and New Zealand, and probably El Tatio in Chile. But these are certainly not the only places in the world where you can see geysers.
