This stratovolcano two fused with the characteristic features of the structure, morphology and completely independent centers of eruptions.

Flat Tolbachik to about 3000 m altitude differs vast area apex of which is occupied by a shallow caldera 3.7 km in diameter, filled with glaciers. In its western part is an active crater.
In 1975 there was great Tolbachik fissure eruption, ash clouds and volcanic ash covered a huge area of land, with the result that all the vegetation is dead. From earlier forest green and full of life were only bare trunks of trees, yet this area was called «dead wood», which is now fascinates with its languor and silence. Dead wood is a reminder that the power of nature is not only creative, but also destructive.
On the night of November 27, 2012 Flat Tolbachik woke up again, destroying the well-known base Lunohodchik «Leningrad», which in Soviet times was one of the sites for testing and Lunokhod rovers. After this eruption, the surrounding landscape has changed beyond recognition, and before long established roads and trodden routes for climbing buried under layers of lava or volcanic bombs are blocked.
