The researchers who found this volcano in 1971 suggest that the approximate height of Ignoilsky Volcano was 3 km. All that is left of it today is the feeding channel, a section of which can be seen in the bed of the Shuya River before the 9 m high concrete wall of the dam of the Ignoilsky water power plant, which is also one of the places of interest here. The building of the power plant, completed in 1937, was an accidental cause for the future scientific discovery. The signs of previous activity by the Ignoilsky paleo-volcano can be discovered in an area covering approximately 30 sq km around the village of Ignoila. If not for the Karelian marshes hiding the underlying bedrock, this number could be bigger.
