Suchavsky Huk waterfalls

The Suchavsky ("Suceava") Huk are cascade waterfalls in the Ukrainian Carpathians, a geological sanctuary of local significance. The site is located in the Yalovychora Mountains massif within Putyla District of Chernivtsi Oblast, in Shepit village.

 

The protected area totals 0.5 ha. The site is governed by the Shepit Village Council.

 

The total height is over 5 m. The waterfalls formed at the place where the Suceava river (Danube basin) penetrates persistent rocks. Based on the water content, Suchavsky Huk are the mightiest waterfalls in Chernivtsi Oblast; this is especially spectacular during rains and intensive snow melting.

 

Traveling from Chernivtsi by car, the most preferable route would be through Vyzhnytsia and Putyla, however, after Vizhnytsia the road is mostly without asphalt.
