In many places you can see fumaroles bubbling through the mud. :''Getting there:'' arrange with a tour operator or try to reach this place on your own. Take one of the two daily trains to ''Novoderevenskaya'' station and follow the abandoned railway track in the western direction (9 km; to pass through tunnels, a lantern would be helpful). Alternatively, take the bus to the village ''Klyuchi'' and then another 9 km walk. Detailed description of the route is here (in Russian). The road directly to the volcano may be very dirty and impassable for regular cars. wikipedia:Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk
