Last Sunday, on Idependence day, Etos (Jenia), RuslanaTube, Lilja and I went up on Hoverla, the highest mountain of Ukraine (2061 m).









Lilya has to turn back half way, because she wasn't prepared for cold and rainy weather further up.





We walked directly into a big rain cloud hanging on the summit of Hoverla.





Reached the summit! Yiipeehh!











Too much wind.

Down again.





It would have been a really WILD experience on any day, but it was particularly fun on Idependence Day

Great to hearing from you! Wonderful trip you had!

Ruslana ... the best ... in Ukrainian flag ... great idea!

Wild Carpatian mountains! Is windy there? I see that you had great time! I like especially the photos from the peak.

Indeed! Was a lot of people celebrating this day in such a way in the peak?

How did you enjoy your wild trip?

It is very steep, but okay to walk. We needed 5 hours 15 mintues up and down including a picknick and several photo sessiosn with the flag.

Oh yes!

Yes, there were masses of people walking up. I am not sure, if everyone made it to the top. Many seem to have misjudged the weather conditions up there. People were in their normal street clothes and footwear, not suitable for mountian hiking in rainy weather.

How did you enjoy your wild trip?

Very much. Another enjoyable adventure was going swimming in a wild river.

LOL!

Unfortunately I couldn't be on Hoverla and in Kyiv at the same time. I decided to stay in the Carpathians, because it would have been a lot of hazzle to go to Kyiv. I wait for a better opportunity for a concert.

Wild people from the mountains! Yes I can immagine. I experienced the same in our mountains but they're much smaller.

Not really. The air was very warm, so it was a pleasure to dip into the cool river. We used the rapids as a natural jacuzzi whirlpool. Great fun!

I would have join you with pleasure, but Peak Hoverla and the Maramuresh Carpathians don't belong anymore to Romania.

You were really wild here! I'm curious to the similar thing as Nikoleta. How does marks for tourists looks? Are they also similar to ours (red, green, yellow and blue small signs in the trees in the white belts, every 50 - 200 metres of the paths), green means usually light way, red the worst - going to the mountains, hills etc.).

hop

Great photo's and it sounds like a great experience. I wondered if all you have Ukrainian roots in one way or another ?

Most of us only since 2004 :-)
But I have a book her : De Oekraine - het land en zijn bevolking - 1939 Amsterdam - Van Holkema & Warendorf NV and there is a chapter : Nederlandsche invloeden in de Oekraine. (dutch influences in Ukraine).
So we will never be sure we don't have far relatives there. Kutsma sounds very dutch (fries ?) to me :-)

Nice pictures Cora. Indeed a very nice day to climb Hoverla.
And me asking myself where everyone is

Hey Guido,
Mmmmm I would say Gronings and the Kutsmaeee. Maybe Kutsma's greatgreatgreatgrandparents were Groningse potatofarmers who came to Odessa by boat and your right your aren't sure although there are more clues that my ancestors came from Belgium ha, ha.. And eee my Ukranian roots started in februari 2008.

The Ukrainians removed the Romanian flag and the Romanian statue from the peak Hoverla?

I can't believe this! They could construct that Ukrainian symbol near it. Not destorying the Romanian one.

After the USSR stolen that teritory from Romania, now they destory everything Romanian

On that particular day you just had to follow the long queue of people. You don't really see it on the pictures, but on the way up there were really many people. I think that many didn't make to the top because of the weather and their unsuitable clothes. That's why on the way down there were not many people left.

But even without other people you could easily see the path. It was also marked. Etos said that Hoverla is the only clearly marked mountain in the Carpathians. Other mountains are a bit more difficult to climb.

Like on your picture: white and red bars on trees and stones.

What a chance that it's also the highest. It would be not good if the highest mountain could be available only for climbers. I remember what are Carpatians in photos - usually wonderful meadows called "polonina" - at least Ukrainian meadows are called like this in CZ.

Thanks so it's common. I'm pleased that all the countries has got quality signs for tourists.

It was in the exact place where the Ukrainian symbol is now. My grandmother took a photo there in the year 1935.

Isn't Ruslanatube on one of the pics ? Very mysterious person. Some people think he/she's british. But I don't know.
I only know he/she likes Ruslana as much as we do :-)

Wow! What a nice trip to Hoverla summit! Hope you've enjoyed your time very much Btw, where did you climb it from, I mean from which village did you start the walk?

AlexandruRo
Sorry Alex, Hoverla was never in Romania.. It's Northern Maramuresh, It was first on Polish-Czechoslovak border, then it became Polish-Hungarian, then Ruthenia (Zakarpattya)-Ivanofrankivsk oblast border. The parts of today's Ukraine that were Romanian are Tchernivtsi oblast and south part of Odesa oblast.. So you maybe confused with some other mountain, like Southern Pip Ivan (not the one with observatory) or some other mountain...

Maybe you're right. But my grandmother when she talks about the peak where she took the photo calls it "Hovârla".

Ruthen. URGENT! Come on MSN. You have to know something!
