Hoverla is the highest mountain in Ukraine, located in the Carpathian Mountains in the west of the country. It stands at 2,061 meters (6,762 feet) tall and is a popular destination for hikers, skiers, and nature enthusiasts. The name "Hoverla" is believed to come from the Hungarian word "Havasok," meaning "mountain of snow."

The mountain is part of the Chornohora range, which includes several other peaks over 2,000 meters in height. The area is known for its rich flora and fauna, including rare species like the Carpathian brown bear and the lynx. In summer, hikers can enjoy the green meadows, fresh air, and stunning views of the surrounding mountains.

In winter, Hoverla and the Carpathians are a popular destination for skiing and snowboarding. There are several ski resorts in the area, including Bukovel, Dragobrat, and Vorokhta.

Climbing Hoverla is a popular activity, and there are several routes to the summit, with varying levels of difficulty. The most popular route starts in the village of Vorokhta and takes around 5-6 hours to complete round trip. At the summit, hikers are rewarded with panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and valleys.
