Stolbchaty -a Cape on the West coast of Kunashir island, which is a picturesque steep cliffs up to 40-50 meters high, formed as a result of the stratification of basalt lavas of the Mendeleev volcano with a well-defined columnar separation in the form of five-and six-sided columns. Due to its uniqueness and picturesque nature, the Cape is a popular tourist destination. It is located in the protected area of the state nature reserve "Kurilsky", but you can visit the Cape yourself without special documents and permits. On the ecological trail there are natural hot springs where you can plunge into mineral waters and take mud baths. Another highlight of the Cape is the spawning of salmon, which you can watch for hours, watching the fish overcome waterfalls, rapids and streams on the way to the spawning ground.
