Carpathian Hike. Kukul – in Search of Snow

The Kukul Range isn’t very high, so the ascent to its peaks is achievable even for an inexperienced tourist. Polonynas – alpine meadows – of Kukul are fabulously beautiful, especially in winter. Winter seldom visits cities nowadays; but it still reigns in the mountains, covering their slopes with diamond carpets.

The Kukul Range is situated in the very heart of the Carpathians. From it, you may enjoy the views of winter Chornohora, Svydovets, a big part of the Gorgany, the Carpathians of Pokuttia; stretch your hand – and it seems you may touch Hoverla or Petros; villages Vorokhta and Mykulychyn are down there, under your feet.

A Carpathian Hike in winter is unforgettable. A special place in your memory will be occupied by contrasts of the night view from the peaks of Kukul – dark sky with glimmering stars, and under it, like costly jewels, lights and fires of Bukovel and Dragobrat.

Day 1: A trip by train from Lviv or Ivano-Frankivsk to Vorokhta. From there we will go to Voronenka by bus. Ascent on one of the ranges of Kukul through the forest and small alpine meadows. Here we will encounter summer houses from time to time. From there we will come to one of the big polonynas with a view on Hoverla and Petros. Farther the way will lead us across an open range to Serednia Polonyna, where we will spend a night in a shepherd’s house.

Day 2: We will travel without our backpacks across Polonynas Labeska, Ozirna, Kukul and Zakukul. There we will see houses where shepherds stay in summer, and sheepfolds near them. Here you may see the equipment for making cheese. Then we will return to the shepherd’s house, where we left our backpacks, and spend one more night there.

Day 3: Descend through the spruce forests covered with snow back to Vorokhta. We will see an old railway bridge on our way. It is interesting because of its shape – an arc, and was built in times of the Austro-Hungarian reign. We will return from Vorokhta to Lviv or Ivano-Frankivsk by train.
