A four-day hike along the Chornohora – the highest ridge in Ukraine. This area belongs to the Carpathian National Park. You will be given an opportunity to watch marvelous views on the whole Carpathian Mountains, reach the highest peak of Ukraine,  and feel the  unique nature of this region.
The Chornohora is the highest mountain ridge in Ukraine. The length of the ridge is around 40 km. Almost half of the ridge has an average elevation of 2000m.
The first impressive mountain is 2020 meters high Petros. Further to the East, the actual highest summit  Hoverla (2061m) is located. Both peaks appear to be the beginning of the ridge which goes eastern. The most eastern summit of the Chornohora ridge is Pip Ivan Mt. or Black Mountain (2021 m). Actually this peak is the end of the ridge.
For several centuries, the Chornohora ridge was the boundary between two kingdoms – Poland and Hungary. Even nowadays you can watch the small posts – the signs of the former border. Moreover, you can meet the remains of World War I.
Up to the 1300 m, the slopes of the Chornohora ridge are covered with beech and spruce trees. If you reach more than 1300 m hight, you will be up with the humble pine growings. Almost all the peaks of the ridge end with the stone fields. Today the Chornohora ridge is under the protection of the Carpathian National Park.
