Mount Farcaul and Mount Mihailecul viewed from Mount Pip Ivan summit ridge a few moments before sunrise
Eastern Carpathians - Ukraine/Romania
18th October 2018
spent the night in the border zone? And how about UA border police?
Non problematic procedure with the permit. I received the one down in Dilove, waiting no longer than 10 minutes. I slept in a ruined shepherd shelter below Kvasnychok in gorgeous scenery... ca. 2 hour walk to glorious sunrise on Pip Ivan's summit ridge. UA border policemen sit still in a forest hut below Mount Stih, very friendly encounter and passport control only :) No tourist on my way till Pip Ivan of Chornohora. Dream hike.
Best greets from Rzeszow!
Nice to know, that times they´re a changin...
