OverviewThim mountain is located on Chornohirsky "spine" near Pip Ivan (which is also called by tourists White Elephant or Black Mountain)
In winter this summit is most beautiful with its strange stone sculptures made by nature. Also near Smotrych located the mountain with interesting name "Vyhatuy Cumin (Вухатий камінь)" in translation it means "stone with ears" through their sculptures from stones on top of the mountain.
