Day 1

Detailed itinerary

At 7 am you will meet your guides and the rest of your group at the railway station (main entrance) in Ivano-Frankivsk. There we will get a shuttle bus to the starting point of our hike – mountain village Tatariv. We start our trip by hiking the old serpentine trail that leads us up to the summit of Khomyak Mountain. The reward for this 3 hours workout is an eye-popping panorama of Ukrainian Carpathians. In a good weather you will enjoy the view of Chornohora mountain range and Hoverla, rocky summits of Gorgans and picturesque valley of mountain river Prut. Our path leads down to the lovely alpine meadow Khomyakiv where the group will stop for the lunch break. Here, from local shepherds, you can buy ecologically clean milk products such as traditional Bryndza or Vurda cheese. From the alpine meadow we hike down to the mountain river Zhenets, where we will visit Huk waterfall. The water is falling down from the rock 11 meters high into the small and deep canyon, which was created by the river during millions of years. Our final stop is village Mykulychyn, which is the biggest one in Ukraine. Here we will get a shuttle back to Ivano-Frankivsk.
