Marmarosh Range is a mountain group in the Eastern Carpathians. Its geological structure, and therefore landscape, is quite different from the other parts of the Ukrainian Carpathians. Its characteristic features are drastic height drops, deep valleys, rocky and steep cliffs; hence ‘Hutsul Alps’, the touristic nickname of Marmarosh. The most part of the Marmarosh Range is located in Romania and is called Maramureș in Romanian; its northern and north-western fringes, namely Chyvchyn and Rakhiv mountains, stretch to the Ukrainian territory. The part of the Ukrainian-Romanian border runs through the Marmarosh Range. The main peaks in the Ukrainian part of the Marmarosh Range are Pip Ivan of Marmarosh (1936 m asl), Neniska Mala (1820 m asl), Stig (1653 m asl), and Chyvchyn (1769 m). The area has extremely rich and diverse vegetation, with many rare and protected species.
