Mountain spiral road
Climbing to Khomyak starts from turn to Bukovel in Tattarov village. The mountain is called so by local residents for its similarity with the back of rodent. Invisible path will lead you to mountain spiral road. Lift is not very difficult and can be easily crossed by tourists. During climbing you will admire with what lies at your feet- interesting tree roots, stones, moss and notice the beauty of pine forest. Your path will be traversed with mountain streams that flow into the river Prut.
Climbing will take near two hours. And here you are at subalpine meadow called polonina. Here you may pitch a tent because water and forest with logs is near. If you are a tourist “with experience”, we will organize you climbing to Hoverlia, the highest mountain in Ukraine!
We suggest you to take trekking poles, a backpack with sandwiches, water, chocolate, thermos of hot tea, small first aid kit and camera. Your equipment should contain windproof jacket with a hood, trekking shoes or sneakers, sunglasses. Light shoes are unacceptable as it can lead to injuries.
Khomyak or Sinyak? Can I visit both
From subalpine meadow you can go either to Khomyak or to Sinyak. Come here for several days if you want to see them both. Sinyak mountain is a little bit further. Walking on a ridge is priceless.
Ascent is pretty rapid, but short, thus many tourists can manage it. After thirty minutes you are on the top. Wonderful! Here you will find the statue of Virgin Mary. Don’t waste a chance to pray her.
You will continue your trips over Gorgona after climbing to Khomyak. Our diversity will satisfy your wishes. Mountains are calling you.
