Russia’s ‘Valley of the Geysers’ lost to landslide ‘literally’ in an eye’s blink!

We have heard of various rivers, valleys disappearing and mountains losing their heights through centuries. But, if I say, a valley disappeared not in centuries or decades or years, but ‘literally’ in the blink of an eye!

No, am not fantasizing, it happened in the real world on June 3. Russia’s famous Valley of the Geysers got buried in a moment after an entire mountainside collapsed.

Here are the photographs of the Geyser River before and after the landslides –

The valley — the great natural wonders of the world – is located in Kronotsky Nature Preserve in the Kamchatka Peninsula. It is one of the few places in the world where geysers occur naturally, with more than 20 large jets and 200 smaller thermal springs springing through Earth’s crust in a 2.7-square-mile (7-square-kilometer) area.

But, this great natural wonder of the world is lost to landslide, which was likely caused by an earthquake.
