Peaks of the Lviv Region: Parashka Mountain

Peaks of the Lviv Region: Parashka Mountain

Parashka mountain is one of the highest and most picturesque peaks of the Skolivski Beskydy mountain range. The mountain went into history by dramatic events of the Kyiv Rus period, when descendants of Volodymyr the Great were fighting for the throne. According to the legend, Princess Paraska was killed just here, following the battle between two sons of Volodymyr the Great. This historical turmoil echoes in the name of the mountain. It was also the place of fierce battles during World War II. Today it is a favourite destination for many tourists due to amazing landscapes are seen from the ridge of the mountain. A picnic and a photoshoot near Hurkalo waterfall will make a spectacular ending of the tour.

The Mysteries of Skolivski Beskydy: around Lopata Mountain

The Mysteries of Skolivski Beskydy: around Lopata Mountain

Lopata Mountain is a beautiful peak in Skolivski Beskydy, one of the closest Carpathian ranges around Lviv. A walk to Lopata, with a relatively easy ascent and steep descent, is an enjoyable exercise for a day out. The peak used to be the epicenter of military clashes: one can still see the remains of WWI trenches there. Later, during the WWII, these fortifications were used by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) in their victorious battle against the Nazi troops. On the Lopata walk, we will also see two interesting hydrological sites of the Lviv region: Kamyanka waterfall and Zhuravlyne Lake, also known as Dead Lake due to the high levels of hydrogen sulfide in the water.

The Mysteries of Skolivski Beskydy: the ridge of Kliuch Mountain

The Mysteries of Skolivski Beskydy: the ridge of Kliuch Mountain

The ridge of Kliuch mountain is not as high as the other mountain ranges in Skolivski Beskydy, and for that reason it is sometimes considered as not a too attractive destination for the experienced hillwalkers. Which might be true if you don’t know what to look for: the place is full of exciting geological sites. The lengthy but easy walk will lead you to Polyanytske Lake, the picturesque tectonic canyon-like rift, and rocky groups nicknamed Stonehenge and Easter Island. The ridge is also known as a WWI battle place.

Wild Carpathians: discovering Gorgany

Wild Carpathians: discovering Gorgany

Gorgany is one of the wildest and most exotic parts of the Carpathians. There are no green meadows with the flocks of grazing sheep, like everywhere else. Instead, in this desolate corner, you will find stunning summits, covered with vast stone fields. Local people call these formations «gregoty», mimicking the sound of rolling stones; hence the name of the range. This type of terrain is not found anywhere else in the Carpathian mountain system. Gorgany is a challenge for a hill walker, yet it is your choice if you’re looking for dramatic landscapes and want to escape civilization!

Carpathian Two-Thousanders: Pip Ivan of Chornohora

Pip Ivan of Chornohora is the third highest peak in the Ukrainian Carpathians, and a walk to its summit offers the best overview of the mighty Chornohora Range. Another attraction of the location is a deserted astronomic observatory. The iconic Modernist building was built in the end of the 1930s and was later nicknamed the White Elephant. In our days, Pip Ivan is one of the most popular touristic destinations in the Ukrainian Carpathians.

Crocuses on Chorna Klyva

Crocuses on Chorna Klyva

At the time of the massive crocus blooming, snow still covers most of the Carpathian slopes. Purple crocus fields (specifically, their local Carpathian variety Crocus Heuffelianus) cover all the sunny spots, first in the lower altitudes, and then going higher as snow melts. To contemplate the ephemeral beauty of these fragile yet brave early spring flowers, we will go on a 2-day walk to the Chorna Klyva Mountain. It is relatively easy to ascend; tourists can use shepherd summer sheds as shelters during the cold spring nights. The summit of Chorna Klyva offers great vistas of surrounding ridges (Chornohora, Svydovets, and Gorgany) and fantastic sunrises.
