Twenty two children from Berezhany and Ternopil state run institutions will remember an unforgettable trip to the Ukrainian Carpathians, thanks to the indifferent 30 kind people. From September 17th to 19th, the children's big dream came true - to conquer the Carpathian Mountains in Western part of Ukraine: Mount Hamster (1542m) and Mount Bukovel (920m).
Frozen, wet, tired, but thirsty for victory over themselves, the children confidently overcame the tops of the mountains. But the most interesting was the lunch on the meadow, which each child managed to carry through all the obstacles while climbing to the top of the mountain. The lunch would not have tasted like here if the children eat it before.
In addition to the mountains, the children were fascinated:
- Yablunytsya pass;
- Trufanetsky waterfall;
- Breakthrough waterfall in Yaremche;
- Cable car at the ski resort "Bukovel";
- Real mineral water in the village of "Kvasy";
- The nature of the Carpathian region;
In addition, children had the opportunity to relax and enjoy the food of the local region, in the hotel "TOGA", which is located in the village of Yablunytsia, Ivano-Frankivsk region.
Here are Children's impressions from the trip:
"I fell three times during the descent from Mount Hamster, I will not forget about it, because it was cool," Sofia
"I want to stay here and live in this area, it's very quiet here," Mikhail G.
"When we go to the Carpathians again, because you can fool around here, and you won't get anything for it," Oleksiy
"Wow, what really are bubbles in water? And also for free? Can I have a lot of such water? ", Vitalik
"The scenery while riding the cable car was incredible, very beautiful, thank you for such trip," Christyna
"Thank you for organizing an unforgettable weekend in the Carpathians, I want more," Mykhailo S.
