The Chorny Dyv

Located in Putyla District of Bukovyna, the Chorny Dyv mountain ridge is a true natural miracle. Its rock formations are in the Yalovychory mountains, one of the most beautiful places of the Ukrainian Carpathians. Here, on the border of the Sarata and Perkalab rivers, you’ll see picturesque rocks surrounded by a coniferous forest with steep 50-60m high walls formed by grey and green-grey lime stones of the Jurassic period (aged 210 million years).

 

The stone walls have deep vertical splits where you can find edelweiss alpine flowers which are quite rare for the Carpathians. You can also meet other endemic species here. The rocks provide a wonderful panorama of the surrounding Carpathian ridges.
