The combination of Black and White Cheremoshes is the most appropriate option for the raftsmen. The Cheremosh and its tributary usually have short turbulent floods with rapid changes in water level. The Black Cheremosh is more affluent than the White Cheremosh. The route passes by Ivano-Frankivsk and Chernivtsi towns. Cheremosh is a right-hand tributary of the Prut river – formed by the confluence of the Black and White Cheremoshes. The total length of the Cheremosh river is 80 km, Black Cheremosh – 87 km, White Cheremosh – 50 km. These are typically mountain rivers with a slight incline and rapid race (from 8 to 20 km/h).
