The Nimchych mountain pass connects Vyzhnytsia and Putyla Districts going from Vizhenka settlement to Roztoky village. The pass is 586m high. In the summer this place serves as a leisure and hiking center, and in the winter it tuns into a ski resort.

 

Still, for a true nature fan Nimchych means unique panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and the Cheremosh valley. You’ll see the Verkhorichya mountain (834m) in the North, Prosichka (913m) in the South, the Bankiv mountain range (870.7 at the highest point) in the East and wonderful hutsul Roztoky village hidden in the narrow Cheremosh valley in the West.

 

Nimchych is also on the path to the Protyate Kaminnya rocks, a very impressing natural monument.
