Journey to the highest mountain lake in Ukraine

in #travelfeed8 months ago

When I return to the mountains, I always at the beginning of the trip remember only the incredible atmosphere that prevails there and the beauty of the mountain expanses. The fact that it’s quite difficult to climb until the straps of the backpack find a place on my shoulders and the lungs begin to absorb the necessary amount of oxygen from more rarefied mountain air, I forget, but quickly remember when I again climb up somewhere. But after some time, the initial difficulties are forgotten when you see this pristine beauty, the beauty of the mountains.

The pristine beauty of mountain forests

My new journey, my friends and I started at the end of June. We started the ascent from the foot of Goverla, from the side near the Zaroslyak base. A few hours later we reached the source of the Prut River, which originates from a spring on the slope of Goverla. Behind my back in the photo there is a small cascading waterfall originating from this source.

It was my first (and so far the only) trip to the mountains with my wife. The trip was planned for three days, but the weather prevented us, and I will tell about this a little later.

When we got to the ridge, it was time to admire the mountain scenery. Here I again forgot about all the difficulties of climbing and just enjoyed the indescribable beauty and charged with the incredible energy of the mountains.

Incredible landscape

The clouds hung right over the ridge, sometimes we passed right through them. It was wet and wet, and the sounds of our voices were muffled.

This picture asks for the canvas, but unfortunately, I'm not an artist, so there is only a photo.

The last halt before a longer rest, we plan to spend the night by the lake.

Short halt

Well, we came to the goal - Lake Brebeneskul. The lake lies at the bottom of the glacial kar (a cup-shaped depression formed by the glacier). The shores are high, with stone chips. Lake feeds on precipitation and groundwater. The water is clear, blue, slightly mineralized. The bottom is rocky, rises eastward, covered with gray silt at a depth. The width of the lake is 67 m, the length is 147 m.

The greatest depth is 3.2 m. In the warm season, the water level can vary by several tens of centimeters, depending on the amount of precipitation. The lake does not have a permanent surface leak, but there are signs of water filtering through the ridge on the east side. From it begins the river of the same name (Tysa basin).

This time we were going without tents, but for an emergency we took a tent with us. It seems that we will need it, because such a large number of clouds over the ridge may indicate the proximity of rain at night.

Incredible hike and photos. It feels exhausting going up with a backpack, definitely understand what you are saying!

I'm glad I was able to convey my feelings from my mountain hike

Those really are some beautiful shots and quite a dramatic scenery with the clouds so close to the ridges! Hope you didn't get rained on too much.

The green colour really is incredible! Thanks for sharing your journey with us!

In fact, the next day was a terrible thunderstorm and we were forced to go down, I will write about it

absolutely picture-esque. Picnic here would be awesome

yes, there are very picturesque places

What a beautiful scenery. Great environment is the key. Enjoy your journey.

thanks a lot!
