We should not ignore a very beautiful object, which is located in one of the mountains of the Ukrainian Carpathians. Unfortunately, little is known about this extraordinary record holder. Until recently, only the inhabitants of the village of Dilove knew about its existence. Probably that is why the place today does not give the impression of a "trampled" attraction, it is clean and quiet. The location is recommended for tourists who plan to climb Mount Pip Ivan, the geographical center of Europe.

Description of the waterfall

We’re talking about the largest mountainous "beauty" in Ukraine. The height of the miracle Yalynskyi reaches 26 meters, and it is located on the slope of the Mandesh ridge, in the Carpathians, above sea level at 1050 meters. The place impresses with its beauty and fantastic beauty of the canyon. The waterfall is formed by streams of the mountain river Yalyn, descending from the majestic rock to the massive ledges. Falling down, the water forms a huge number of drops. Many people compare such a spectacle, which you want to watch eternity, with the birth of countless crystal fragments shimmering with precious sparks.

It is interesting to note that people, although there were few of them at first, knew about the existence of Yalynskyi waterfall for a long time. Evidence of this is the carved inscription on the stone left by members of the family of the Hungarian nobility in the late 19th century. This is due to the fact that getting to the waterfall is very difficult. A narrow path leads to it, which is easy to get out of the way. It is best to go to the waterfall with an experienced guide. Under his guidance, you will not only reach your destination safely, but also learn about the existence of a number of interesting stories related to the Yalyn miracle.
