border of Ivano-Frankivsk and Transcarpathian regions

Hoverla Mountain is located on the Chornohora range that divides Ivano-Frankivsk and Transcarpathian regions.

One part of its territory belongs to the Carpathian National Nature Park, another part - to the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve. You can climb to its top from both sides using different routes. The name of the top, most probably, originates from the Romanian language, meaning "hard to climb mountain" or from Hungarian - "Snow Mountain". Every year, especially on national holidays, thousands of people are climbing Hoverla. The Prut River rises from its top.
