Borzhava mountain valley

Borzhava mountain valley in autumn is an extremely impressive sight. Slopes and meadows burn like a huge bonfire and delight the eye with their warm colors. Only a few travelers have a luck to catch such autumn high in the mountains.

On the northern slope of Borzhava mountain valley there is a mountain Velyky Verkh (its altitude is 1598 m). The stream originates there from the large underground source (sometimes called “The Sea Eye”). The waterfall Shypit is situated on this stream at an altitude of 744 m above sea level. Its height is about 12 meters. The gorge of the waterfall is very picturesque. Beech forests together with the everlasting spruces make it attractive for the recreation. Moreover, the slopes with the ski lifts are very close to this place. The surrounding fertile forest are rich of mushrooms, and meadows – of blueberries and cowberries.
