Briefly about climbing Hoverla and walking to Lake Nesamovyty

Climbing the Hoverla and hacking to Lake Nesamovyte you for two wonderful days in Carpathians get a lot of adventures and pleasant experiences. This programme is designed primarily for beginners. Beginners really like this tour because the route is not difficult to overcome, and most of the way you can walk without heavy backpacks, which can be left at the camp where they will be looked after. We walk to Hoverla and Lake Nesamovyte with light backpacks, taking only the most necessary things with us.

During these two wonderful days, you will get a lot of positive emotions and the necessary experience of mountain hiking with an overnight stay in tents. Experienced team leaders will become your real friends and mentors. They will be happy to teach you useful skills for hiking in the mountains: making a fire, setting up a camp, cooking in the field, etc. In general, you will enrich your knowledge with a large number of necessary tourist life hacks.

The easy and affordable programme of our hike is a great opportunity to reset your mind and have a good active holiday in the company of new friends. A kind of very effective “mountain therapy” can easily overcome stress and depression, which, unfortunately, is very important in our difficult times. You will return from the trip full of positive emotions and charged with the incredible energy of the mountains!

All groups are accompanied by experienced team leaders, as well as assistant cooks who will be on duty in the camp and cooking while the participants are overcoming the mountain peaks. This is the first time we have organised a hike in the Carpathians in this format, and we hope that you will have only positive impressions.

Plan of climbing Hoverla and lake Nesamovyte

Despite the fact that Hoverla is the highest among the two-thousand-metre peaks in Ukraine, climbing it in summer is not difficult even for beginners. Even the elderly and children are quite capable of making the climb. In addition to climbing to the highest point of Ukraine, we will hike along a picturesque trail and get to the shores of the incredible high-mountainous Lake Nesamovyte. It’s also worth noting that the team leader will decide the sequence of visits to the locations based on the weather forecast.

Day 1

Ivano-Frankivsk – the foot of Hoverla – Lake Nesamovyte

The first day of our voyage will begin with a group meeting at the railway station in Ivano-Frankivsk and a pleasant introduction to the team leader. After a brief introduction, without wasting any time, we will board a minibus and quickly drive to the Zaroslyak sports base, which is located in the heart of the Chornohora ridge in the immediate vicinity of Mount Hoverla. It is from the territory of this sports centre that our hike in the mountains will begin. At first, after walking a short distance through the spruce forest and finding a convenient place, we will set up our tents. Here we will make a short stop for repacking and, taking only the most necessary things (the parameters of the necessity of things on the way will be determined by the team leader), we will head towards Lake Nesamovyte. A light backpack behind your back will be an almost imperceptible burden on this wonderful journey. Our path along the trail will pass through the protected spruce forest and high mountain meadows. In clear weather, you will be able to admire the enchanting view of the harsh and steep northern slopes of the Montenegrin ridge. During the Ice Age, these places were covered by a huge glacier, which left marks in the relief in the form of deep glacial cirques and carreras.

Further along the way, we pass near high, sharp cliffs. They are created by the Bolshoi and Malyi Kizly ranges. Along the way, we will be able to enjoy the taste of water from clear mountain streams that will often cross our path. After gaining height and a short steep climb, we will come out of the forest to a place called the Hanging Valley. It is here that we will be able to admire Lake Nesamovyte. This picturesque lake is shrouded in ancient legends, which the team leader will be happy to tell you about 🙂

After an unforgettable holiday on the banks of the Nesamovyty we will go along the already known trail to the camp, where we will satisfy our hunger with a delicious dinner! Around the campfire we will be able to chat in a friendly company, sharing our impressions of the hike and singing songs 🙂 But do not stay too long, because the next day we will climb to the top of the highest mountain in Ukraine.

During the first day of the hike, we will cover as much as 16 km, with an ascent and descent of 600 metres.

Day 2

Climbing Hoverla, returning to Ivano-Frankivsk

The second day, after everyone wakes up, will start with a delicious coffee in the middle of the magical Carpathians. Then everyone will satisfy their hunger with a delicious breakfast cooked over a fire.

Hoping for good, non-capricious weather, taking with us some water, food and the necessary things for the climb, with a light backpack and a good mood, we conquer the highest peak in Ukraine in one breath.

After only two or three hours of climbing the mountain, which most people can do, we will get incredibly positive emotions from being under the flags at the very top of Hoverla. In clear, good weather, from the highest point of Ukraine, we will admire the majestic Chornohora ridge, the rocky Marmaros and even the Romanian peaks. The joy of these moments of happiness is a real reward for a successful ascent to Hoverla. First of all, after the ascent, you should hold an unforgettable photo shoot to catch this moment of happiness and keep it as a souvenir. After that, you should immediately call your family and friends to tell them about your great achievement. After enjoying the scenery around Mount Hoverla, we will begin a leisurely descent, looking at the Carpathian landscapes along the way. At the same time, to avoid injury, do not forget to look at your feet 🙂 Trekking poles and comfortable trekking shoes will make the journey much easier.

After returning to the forest camp, we quickly pack up our tents and continue the descent to our transport, which will take us to Ivano-Frankivsk to celebrate our small victory 🙂 Along the way, if we have time to spare, which depends on your organisation in the campaign, we will have time to visit the souvenir market in Yaremche and make a photo shoot near the Probiy waterfall.

At the end of the day, you will be sitting on the train and remembering the positive moments of this trip with a pleasant fatigue. It will be the most memorable weekend of your life, and you will have a lot of photos to remember it by. And don’t forget to share them with your new friends who have travelled with you to Mount Hoverla and Lake Nesamovyte.

After rebooting your mind in the Carpathians, you will be able to start a new working week with great inspiration and efficiency. You will immediately want to return to the magical mountains and this will encourage you to plan your next hike 🙂 So, we will be waiting for you on new trips to the mountains!

Please note

Changes to the programme

The team leader has the right to make changes to the route based on weather conditions, condition and wishes of the group.

Weather conditions

It often rains in the Carpathians during the warm season, including on the territory of our route. Therefore, you should always be prepared for the vagaries of the weather and take a raincoat with you. In addition, strong winds often rise in the mountainous areas and there are sharp temperature changes from heat to significant coolness during the day. Most of the rest stops and stops along the route are at a considerable altitude. Therefore, in the evening and at night it can be quite cool even in the middle of summer. So don’t forget to pack a hat and gloves for your trip!

In addition, do not forget about your health. To avoid problems during the hike, remember that you should not have any diseases that are incompatible with hiking in the mountains.

Equipment required

Dear tourists, when reading our list of equipment, please keep in mind that it is compiled taking into account the fact that we will go on a hike in the summer. If you book a tour in spring or autumn, you should pack more warm clothes. In this case, you should consult your manager.

In case of a first trip to the mountains, it is better to borrow equipment from friends or use our rental service in Ivano-Frankivsk. It is after the first hike that you will be able to understand whether the mountains will become your new exciting hobby. And after communicating with experienced tourists and a team leader, you will become more informed about the peculiarities of choosing equipment and learn how to choose it according to your own needs.

When you pack your backpack, keep in mind that at the beginning of your trip in Ivano-Frankivsk the team leader will distribute food for the trip, approximately several kilograms per person. Practice proves that the normal filling of a backpack for a hike lasting from 3 to 6 days is from 12 to 17 kilograms.

More information about what equipment you should take with you on a hike can be found in the video below.

If the tourist’s equipment does not comply with the recommendations on the website, the team leader has the right to refuse to allow him/her to participate in the hike. This can happen if you take sneakers or rubber boots instead of the recommended hiking boots.

You should take the choice of equipment with maximum responsibility. Your attitude to this important aspect of hiking preparation affects both your personal health and the comfort of the trip for the whole group!

In order to protect against moisture (rain, snow), the items you pack in your backpack should be placed in plastic bags (including garbage bags).

When packing warm clothes (primarily down) and a sleeping bag, you need to be as responsible as possible. When dry, they can keep you warm even in the worst weather.

  • Tent – must be two-layered (with an inner tent and an outer tent), with a tent waterproofness of more than 2000 mm and a floor that has a similar indicator exceeding 5000 mm (or even better, 10,000). If you want to use your own tent, you must send a photo or model to the trekking manager. After receiving this information, he will inform you about the suitability of the tent for this trip. In no case should you bring a fishing or Chinese single-layer tent!
  • Backpack – for a hike, it is optimal to use a frame with a volume of 65 to 80 litres.
  • Sleeping bag you should choose one with a comfort temperature of +2…+5 °C.
  • Rug, mat – When choosing it, you can take the usual classic Izhevsky, but not the thin one used in yoga!
  • Trekking poles – they will provide an opportunity to relieve the knee joints and serve as additional support.
  • Reinkover – is a cape to protect your backpack from precipitation. However, if you have a raincoat, you won’t need a raincoat.
  • Raincoat or poncho. It is essential to be able to use a rain cover. In this case, you should choose a model with dense polyethylene. However, it is better to take two, as any raincoat can tear during intense movements and movements in the mountains. An even better option would be a poncho, which is a rain cape that is worn with a backpack. A poncho will replace a raincoat and a raincoat.
  • Seat – Foam is essential when hiking to keep you warm and dry at rest stops and in camp.
  1. Lightweight headwear – choose a cap, panama hat, buff
  2. A multifunctional headband (buff) is a must-have. It can be used both as a headdress and to protect the neck and ears from the sun.
  3. A hat – in the mountains with their cool microclimate, a hat is a must-have at any time of the year.
  4. Membrane jacket – provides excellent protection against wind and rain. Alternatively, you can also use a windbreaker.
  5. Membrane trousers – worth taking if you have lightweight single-layer trousers.
  6. Fleece. If you really need it, you can take a sweatshirt, but you should take into account the fact that it is heavier.
  7. Lightweight long-sleeved shirt or synthetic raglan. They will provide excellent sun protection and dry quickly.
  8. 2-3 T-shirts. When travelling in the mountains, it is better to wear a synthetic one, and while staying in the camp, a cotton one is a more convenient option.
  9. Trekking trousers for transitions – lightweight and quick-drying.
  10. Shorts.
  11. Socks – 4-5 pairs, it is better not to be stingy and buy trekking socks, but you can also use ordinary ones.
  12. Underwear – several sets.
  13. A set of passive thermal underwear or a raglan with sleeping pants.
  14. A clean T-shirt and shorts/trousers to wear on the way home.
  15. Swimsuit – if possible and if there are places suitable for swimming on the route. Even in their absence, in the summer in the mountains there is almost always an opportunity to sunbathe or wash in spring water.
  16. A lightweight dress is a must-have if you want to take incredible photos #dressinhiking
  17. Flashlights/gaiters/shoe covers are optional, but you should take them if you have them.

It is worth using high trekking boots with thick corrugated soles, and even better, they should be waterproof. In summer, good quality trekking shoes can also be suitable, but this option is more risky because they do not fix the ankle, and therefore you should be very careful.

Lightweight sneakers, crocs or sandals – you should take them as a second pair of shoes so that you have something to walk around the camp in.

  1. MSBK – mug, spoon, bowl, knife. Tableware – do not bring ceramics with you in any case.
  2. Sunglasses.
  3. Sunscreen (optimally 50 SPF).
  4. Hygienic lipstick (men should also take it).
  5. Headlamp.
  6. A 1.5-litre water bottle. You can use a regular mineral water bottle for this purpose
  7. Personal first aid kit.
  8. Hygiene items – soap, shampoo (small jar or bag), toothpaste, toilet paper
  9. Delicacies – you can stock up on nuts, dried goods or sweets to your liking. But do not take too much, because we will feed you well)

  11. Technology – smartphone, power bank, etc..
  12. Documents and money – be sure to pack in a sealed bag.

Local treats – berries and mushrooms

A huge variety of berries and mushrooms grow in the Carpathians. But don’t rush to pick them. Not all of them are edible, so you should be very careful! Before eating berries or mushrooms, you should always show them to a team leader. He will tell you right away if they are edible. Eating blueberries, raspberries, lingonberries, blueberries and blackberries is very beneficial for the body.

Mushrooms will be very useful for your diet. The best option for this is porcini mushrooms. They should be subjected to sufficient heat treatment. If you have problems with the gastrointestinal tract, we do not recommend indulging in mushrooms while hiking. In any case, be sure to keep your team leader informed about mushroom picking and cooking.

In any case, you should arrive at the Ivano-Frankivsk railway station by 10 am on the first day of our tour. Slight delays are allowed.

As for the mechanism of purchase, choose at your discretion: railway station ticket offices or online resources of the Ukrzaliznytsia website.
Where does the group meet?
The meeting point for the tour participants is the waiting room at the Ivano-Frankivsk railway station. The meeting time is usually 10 am. We focus on the last tourist to arrive. Approximately 5-7 days before the trip, you will receive an email with the exact meeting time and team leader's contacts. Do not forget to check your mail, including your spam folder!
What are the climate features?
The weather conditions in the Carpathians are extremely variable. So always be prepared for any quirks and surprises. First of all, you should have everything you need to protect yourself from precipitation in the form of rain (a raincoat, a rain cover for your backpack). Secondly, in the evening, especially at altitude, it is quite cool here, even in the middle of summer, so don't go walrusing and be sure to bring a jacket, gloves and hat.
What is included in the camping menu?
During the hike, you will find simple but extremely healthy and tasty dishes. First of all, we eat cereals and soups.

Be sure to bring some pocket treats with you, such as nuts or sweets. Also keep in mind that the appetite in the mountains is much better than at home.

The stated menu is indicative. Each team leader has their own specialities, from which tourists have only positive impressions.
