Plachushchiy (weeping) is a small peculiar spring in the upper part of the Valley of Geysers. It's located on the right bank of Geyzernaya river, approximately 300 meters downstream from Troynoy waterfall, across from the mouth of Zakrytyy stream.
It's been first described by T.I. Ustinova in 1955: "Water splashes and runs down in thin jets from the split on the slope. Water temperature is 97.2° degrees Centigrade. From time to time the intensity rises and jets start to shoot as an angled fountain; at the same time steam clouds are raising from the rock splits higher above."
