Mount Kostel (Horgan Burachkivskyi)

Among the mountain peaks around Mykulychyn, the first one worth climbing is the majestic Mount Kostel (also known as Horhan Burachkivskyi), which is 1049 metres high. This peak is part of the Gorgan system and is located just 4.5 km east of the village of Mykulychyn.

The path to Mount Kostel should start near the road bridge over the Prutets-Chemehivskyi River. Following the canyon of this river through the forest, you can get to the very top. The top of this mountain is a 45-metre-high flat-topped rock. It is a wonderful natural observation deck with incredible views. From here, in good clear weather, you can enjoy the fabulous scenery created by the Horgan, Petros and Hoverla.

How do I get to the Kostel (Horhan) rock?

You can climb to the top of Mount Kostel on foot without climbing equipment, or you can take a tour and get as close as possible to the top with an off-road vehicle. From the jeep stop to the summit, you will have to walk 300 metres along the trail. These jeep tours are available for booking at many hotels and manors in Mykulychyn.

If you decide to climb on foot, there are three different routes to the top of Mount Kostel.

 On Mount Kostel from the Great Carpathian Swing

The first of them starts from the Great Carpathian Swing. The way to the mountain from here is along a path near private manors through green thickets and coniferous and deciduous forest. In summer, you can enjoy blueberries along the way, which dot the slopes of this mountain. The closer you get to the top of Mount Kostel, the more often you see huge stone caverns of bizarre shapes and the steeper the ascent becomes. Rumour has it that Oleksa Dovbush used to hold tests of courage and prudence for his Oprishkos recruits in these stone caverns.

🚶 Walking distance About 3.5 km
🕒 Approximate time 2 hours
⬆ Rise From 686 to 1049 m

On Horgan Burachkivskyi from Kosmonavtiv street

The second hiking route to Mount Kostel goes along Kosmonavtiv Street next to the Prutets-Chemehivskyi River. After walking for 2.5 km alongside the river, you should cross the water body on a suspension bridge. Then you should move north-west along a winding street with mini-hotels and mansions. The gathering place for tourist groups for this route is a well-equipped and consecrated water source with a sculpture of the Mother of God and gazebos. From there, you should follow the marked path and be guided by the markings on trees and stones.

🚶 Walking distance About 4.5 km
🕒 Approximate time 3 hours
⬆ Rise From 641 to 1049 m

 To Mount Horgan from the holy spring and the sculpture of the Mother of God

The third route to Mount Kostel begins near the spring and the sculpture of the Virgin Mary. It is located to the north of the first route, is longer, but runs not along a path in the middle of the bushes, but along a rocky road with a great opportunity to explore the mountain scenery, breathe the healing mountain air filled with the scents of flowers in the warm season. On the way up the mountain, the road zigzags several times, and then slowly rises to the west along a wide clearing. This path to Mount Kostel is equipped with gazebos where you can rest and route signs every 1-1.5 km. The starting point of the final stage of this route is a tourist parking lot (coordinates 48°24’18 “N 24°39’39 “E), from which you can already see Mount Kostel itself in the south. At this car park, there are signs with the direction and distance to Rokyta Velyka and Kostel mountains. Then you have to walk south-west for only 600 metres to reach Mount Kostel itself.

🔰 Start Sculpture of the Virgin Mary at the holy spring
🚶 Walking distance About 6.5 km
🕒 Approximate time 4 hours
⬆ Rise From 579 to 1049 m
