The highest mt in Ukraine - 2061 m has three tracks of different hardness. We were with 2 kids (8 and 13 y.o.) so we climbed via the green route and descended via the blue one. Breathtaking views not only from the top but through the whole way up and down. About 3 hours with breaks each direction.

A Hoverla Hike is not for the faint hearted. It is 4km up and 4km down, but most of it is almost vertical on rocks, tree roots and soil. You need to be fit and prepared to do this hike. The view is amazing from the top and I would definitely recommend if you can! We caught a bus with other tourists from Vorokhta which was only 200uah and included lunch.

Let's climb Hoverla - she said. There's a path - she said. Ok then - I said. We took a taxi from Vorokhta, 300Uah per person to the climb start point i.e. the end of the road. The journey is around 20km but the second 10km takes around 1 hour because the road is atrocious. We didn't get above 2nd gear! The driver stopped at the checkpoint so we could pay our entrance fee to the National Park, before continuing onward. He grumbled about how they make so much money from tourists yet none of it invested in improving the road! There are two main walking routes to the top. The blue route is slightly shorter (at 3.6km) than the green (4.3km). Blue is classed as 'steep' and green 'gentle'. To be fair, both are steep. There is little to choose between the two. Both are reasonably well marked with the colours sprayed on trees and rocks. The climb begins through the forest but you immediately find yourself negotiating exposed tree roots meaning care must be taken not to trip. Obviously the topsoil had been eroded by the thousands who had walked before us. We followed the blue route up Hoverla and, once out the forest, the climb became much steeper through bushland and eventually up the final section, the hillside covered with loose rocks and tufty grass. By this point the clouds had descended, it was raining but, although visibility had deceased, we could see others around us on the hillside. Eventually we reached the top. It is very exposed and the rain was driving. This made it cold and unpleasant (August 1st!) and the view we'd hoped for didn't materialise. I have admiration for the hawkers who sell medals, canned drinks and snacks. They have no cover from the elements and must hike up and down daily presumably carrying their wares. That wouldn't be my choice of job. A few quick photos and down we went before hypothermia set in. We chose the green route for our descent. In the first 50 metres twice I fell on my behind. It was at this point I realised the importance of appropriate footwear. I had to take extra care from there on as I was only wearing trainers with minimal grip. Worse was to come in the middle section of the descent. It took over an hour to descend through a bushland section. When the route was being cut I guess the bush was cut away to leave a path. Again, the topsoil had been eroded away and the clay and rocks beneath too, so the path was basically a gully down the hillside. We were clambering down this extremely slippery gully climbing over the rocks in the bottom with the ground either side around chest height, such has been the erosion of the path. When wet and with those trainers it was treacherous and dangerous. 100% concentration was required and I felt lucky to return to the woodland section with nothing more than a muddy bum and muddy hands. After another 2km of exposed tree roots and we were sitting back in the taxi. So, we climbed Hoverla. At the bottom I said never again, but would I do it again? With move favourable weather and improved pathways, probably yes. I'd give it another shot.

On the very top you can get yourself a medal! It´s well deserved, believe me. The ascent takes around 3 hours for an untrained person. The descent also takes around 3 hours. (For well-trained people it is 2 hours ascent and 1 hour descent.) The terrain is quite difficult to walk on. The BLUE and GREEN routes are about the same in difficulty of terrain. Group guides run too fast. The views from the summit are amazing. I recommend to plan at least 7 hours in total (ascent, descent, rest for lunch near the summit) Our driver was angry and almost left while waiting for us to come back from the mount.

It was a really fun and relatively challenging climb, since the snow mass in January in the Carpathians huge. But you can still find your way up since the trail is easy to see. If you would like to visit the highest point of Ukraine - feel accomplished- with average strength in your body- this is the way to go!
