There is enough trade to satisfy needs. The climate is harsh. And now fasten your seatbelts: the noteworthy features of Chukotka and Kamchatka include Petropavlovsk harbor, the "marvelous" Abachinskaia, Koriatskaia, and Kliusevskaia (Kamchatskaia) peaks. And it gets better. There are volcanoes - or "fire-breathing hills" - and eternally snow-capped mountains. Throw in some hot springs for the win.
