The start of the route is located in the residential area of Kolochava village. You can refresh yourself before the trip here – travelers will be greeted with Hutsul Kolyba dishes. The recreational town will always protect travelers from the weather and at night, as well as give them the opportunity to recover their strength to travel.
After passing the village, you will meet beech and spruce forests on your route. And, near the well you can sit and drink delicious spring water, and most importantly – have a little rest.
At this stop you can refresh yourself with clean mountain water, and satisfy your thirst, as well as replenish water supplies to conquer the top.
On the eastern part of Strymba mountain ridge, there is a picturesque lake, actually a bog. It is small, – 8 meters long, and 4 meters wide. The maximum depth of a unique mountain reservoir is more than 1 meter. The water here is quite muddy, and it feeds exclusively on precipitation. It rains often on the mountain, so the bog does not dry out. Of course, fish are not found in this reservoir, but the Carpathian newt is observed here. Mountainous conditions at an altitude of two thousand meters above sea level are good for tail amphibians, so Strymba mountain is not the limit for it.
The top, as well as a mountain of amazing beauty is the main goal of our trip. Its ridge with several hills stretched for more than 3 thousand meters. Rock outcrops and meadows are on the upper limits. Strymba mountain resembles a desert with green stone scatterings. You can see only some mountain pine trees growing in some places here. Incredible beauty appears before the eyes from the top. An oak cross was installed here on August 23, 2008.
