The route begins in one of the most picturesque and interesting settlements of Zakarpattia region – the village of Dilove. It is located 50 metres from the Ukrainian-Romanian border, and there is a geodetic sign and stele “Geographical Centre of Europe” here.
Then the route goes along the Bilyi Stream, the valley of which is fairly considered one of the most picturesque in the Carpathians: sharp peaks with steep rocky slopes, fast streams and small waterfalls. The landscapes of the Marmaroskyi massif are the result of the activity of ancient glaciers.
Lysychyi Montane Meadow
A dirt track will take you to the Lysychyi Montane Meadow, which is located at the foot of Mount Pip Ivan. To this day, as in ancient times, local shepherds (sheepmen) graze flocks of sheep here and make such traditional dairy products as cheese, vurda (urdă), and bryndzia.
There, through the clouds floating between the picturesque Marmarosy, you can see the highest point of our route – Mount Pop Ivan Marmaroskyi.
