Hiking routes in Yaremche region

Marking of walking routes situated in the region was started in 2002 by the regional foundation “Carpathian Paths”. Since 2005, the Program for development of walking routes in Ivano-Frankivsk region called “On a Common Path to the United Europe” (restoring the Eastern-Carpathian Tourist Path) has been implemented, together with the Department of Tourism of Ivano-Frankivsk Regional State Administration.

The concept of ECTP envisages the creation of the network of interconnected routes united around the main one, where tourist refuges and resting places are to be built. For more information, please visit the website of the foundation at www.stezhky.org.ua

In 2009-14, the Foundation marked about 300 km of walking routes for tourists on the territory of Yaremche region.

Besides these, some educational paths, as well as resting areas and places, were created on Carpathian National Natural Park’s territory. For more information, please visit the Reserve’s web-site www.cnnp.yaremcha.com.ua

All walking routes are planned in such a way as to make it possible for a traveler to leave one settlement and return either there or to some other convenient place. The list of walking routes together with their short description is given below.

Rules

• Walk on the marked path, do not step aside. You may accidentally scare a bird in its nest or step on some kind of beetle and thus destroy the balance of the ancient eco-system. The only exception is in case of emergency.

• Do not litter the routes. Do not dump or throw anything into natural water basins. Nature will repay for doing so.

• Do not make a fire or new resting places. By doing so, you harm the Earth and its inhabitants suffer from pain. Rest only in specially designated places.

• Do not cut down trees or bushes, even if they seem dead. Their trunks and roots are important elements of the eco-system.

• Do not carve inscription on stones and trees. One should not leave this kind of destructive memory.

• Respect all the animals. Do not startle them with loud noises, never chase or catch them. Remember, the wildlife reserve is their territory, not yours.

• Do not pick herbs or flowers, even for your herbarium. Let them grow and bung joy not only to you, but also, to others.

• Do not take anything as a souvenir but your photographs and memories. These are the most precious gifts from nature.
