    Goverla and neighboring peaks are quite dangerous in winter time due to unpredictable weather conditions of the dividing ridge. Relatively small height and easy walking up are deceptive in case your are caught up by bad weather. A lot of deadly casualties are reported annually.

    Goverla is the highest mountain of Ukraine. It looks like a green or white pyramid You can go to Goverla from 3 sides. The closest is from Zaroslyak parking stop/Hotel. Ascent is around 2-4 h; maximum 45 degrees slope; descent along the same way and it is quite hard. In winter ice axe is needed. Others sides to get to the summit are interesting for those who hike for several days. Western side from Mount Petros and South Eastern side from Nesamovite lake. Distance from Zaroslyak to Ivano-Frankivsk (the regional center with train station and airport) is around 100 km away. Public transportation is available in Vorokhta 22km from Zaroslyak
