The place is considered a real pearl of the Ukrainian Carpathians. Prut Waterfall is often called Hoverla waterfall, and this is no accident. This is due to its location. It is located in the mountains of the Chornohirskyi ridge, one of the slopes of the well-known peak of Hoverla. The waterfall is not a popular tourist attraction, so it is always relatively clean, quiet and peaceful. This is explained, in particular, not by the most convenient approach. Only a trained person who is in good physical shape will be able to get to Prut's "miracle of nature". However, a difficult hike is worth it, because there is incredible beauty ahead.
Description of Prut Waterfall
The object consists of six cascades, with the largest being 12 meters high. It is located in the massif of Chornohora, a picturesque area. It should be noted that the total height difference at the Prut Waterfall reaches 80 meters, which makes it in a sense a record holder. Feeding this "handsome" is carried out by the flow of the Prut River, which begins on the slopes of the highest mountain in Ukraine - Hoverla. Near the waterfall is a trail that leads to its top. Just 2.5 kilometers from it is the base "Zarosliak", which is a favorite destination of many tourists. It is important to note that the Upper Prut Waterfalls are considered a natural monument, which is part of the Carpathian National Natural Park.
