Syvulia Mountain, trekking in the Carpathians, UkraineDay 1
Early departure from Lviv to Stara Huta. Having lunch. Hiking to  the meadow Rushchyna, where we will stay for a night (good place for a camp, water, splendid views).
While hiking, we will observe the work of local loggers. The wood, that the road is going through, is rather old, but it will amaze you with its deep greenness. If our trip is made in July or August, you will have a chance to taste the Carpathian bilberries, as the whole wood is covered with these berries.

As soon as we will reach our final destination for this day, you will enjoy the views on the ridge we will climb next day. Meadow Rushchyna is rather popular point among tourists to stay for a night, as it has water nearby (a mountain spring) and plane surfaces to place the tents. We will make a fire and cook.

Our morning will start rather early as we have to hike a lot this day. But it doesn’t mean that it will be too hard. The hardest section will take us about two hours to climb the main peak of a ridge – Velyka Syvulia Mountain.
