Mount Hoverla at 2061m, is the highest mountain in Ukraine and part of the Carpathian Mountains. The mountain is located in the Eastern Beskides, in the Chornohora region. The slopes are covered with beech and spruce forests, above which there is a belt of sub-alpine meadows called polonyna in Ukrainian. At the eastern slope there is the main spring of the Prut River. The name is of Old Hungarian origin and means 'snow mountain'. Hoverla is composed of sandstone, a sedimentary rock type.The date of the first ascent is unknown. In late 19th century the mountain became a notable tourist attraction, especially among tourists from nearby cities of Galicia. In 1880 the first tourist route between the peak of Hoverla and Krasny Luh was marked by Leopold Wajgel of the Galician Tatra Society. The following year the first tourist shelter was founded there.In the 20th century the mountain increasingly gained popularity as an extreme sports site. Some routes are classified as 1A in the winter period, according to the USSR grading system. Nowadays because of its prominence too many unskilled extreme-lovers are taking attempts to climb it in winter, resulting in regular frostbite or even deaths. The most popular approach to the summit starts from the tour-basa Zaroslyak on the mountain's east face and gains more than 3,600 vertical feet along a steep path with few switchbacks. There is a steeper route and a more gentle one but a lengthier one .Add Hoverla to your Yaremche travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Yaremche holiday builder .

Two times my wife and I have already visited the "roof of Ukraine"-at its highest peak, mountain Goverle (height 2060 m 80 cm, if it is very accurate!).

It occupies an area of almost 60000 hectares.
