The route begins with the most picturesque pass of the Ukrainian Carpathians, which is 960 meters above sea level. From the pass, you can see tens of kilometers in different directions, as the mountain ranges overlap, and are covered with blue sky. The trip continues under the protection of the spruce forest until the next stop.
Synevyr Pass is also known throughout Ukraine for the festival called “Bring the Flocks to the Meadows”. This festival is the biggest holiday dedicated to shepherding. It is organized by the National Nature Park. Every year, at the end of May, or at the beginning of June (depending on the weather), a bonfire, sheep milking, various competitions, an exhibition-sale, and mass festivities are held here. Cheese tasting is the raizin of the holiday. However, in 2020 the festival did not take place due to quarantine. Preliminary, in 2021, the celebrations will also be postponed for security reasons.
Before climbing the mountain, you can regain our strength, and satisfy our thirst with cool water from a mountain spring. After having a rest, we will continue our trip.
The high Kamyanka mountain with a 1578-meter peak invites everyone into its embrace. It is of alpine origin, and it is mostly covered with stones. At the very top of Kamianka mountain there is a concrete pillar, where the yellow and blue flag of Ukraine is repeatedly hoisted. There are villages scattered in the valley, where the houses seem very tiny from a height.
This peak is located above the legendary Synevyr Lake. It looks into the lake, like into a mirror, and opens a panorama of the surrounding mountains.
The lake greets guests with its original silence. The source itself is hidden in the arms of “spruce lashes”, but this does not detract from the beauty of the environment, and on the contrary, exacerbates the feeling. It is here that all the feelings and experiences gained during the trip will be forever etched in everyone’s memory.
