The name of the highest mountain in the Carpathians in Hungarian sounds like Hóvár, which means “Snow Mountain”. This is absolutely true, because even in the warm season you can see snow here.
A small flat area on the top of Hoverla will allow you to enjoy the surrounding landscapes with a completely new look. In clear weather, you can see all the Ukrainian Carpathians and the Montenegrin ridge from here. Kolomyia, Ivano-Frankivsk, Sigetu-Marmatsii (Romania) are visible.

The beauty of the surrounding nature – bright greenery, covering the mountain slopes, beech and pine forests around, mighty century-old trees – delight even the most sophisticated travelers. Trout is found in the lake itself, and the mountain air is crystal clear.
In the middle of the reservoir there is a small island, on one of the banks there is a 30-meter wooden sculpture “Sin and Vir”, immortalizing the lovers of the characters of the old legend, from whose names, as they say, its name comes from. However, scientists have their own opinion about the origin of the lake. It is believed that Synevyr was formed 10 thousand years ago as a result of an earthquake and the movement of rocks.
The lake is located in the territory of the National Park, therefore fishing, hunting and deforestation are prohibited here. Thanks to this, many rare representatives of fauna and flora from the Red Book have the opportunity to freely live here.
