In the Eastern Carpathians there is now the so-called “high tourist season”. Unfortunately, it is often associated with numerous accidents and interventions by mountain rescuers. As reported by the Department of State Emergency Service of Ukraine in Ivano-Frankivsk region, mountain rescuers provide aid to injured and lost tourists almost every day.
Nowadays mobile phone is one of the things that we almost always have in our pocket – also in the wild mountains. Modern phones provide many opportunities, and making phone calls has long ceased to be their main function. We spend more time using different apps. We asked our rescuers from Pip Ivan Mountain Rescue team and Mountain Volunteer Search and Rescue Bieszczady Group to share their favorite outdoor apps and tested them out. Here are the top fifteen useful hiking apps.
Now the building of the observatory is laid-up. On the whole it is closed for visitors since 2016. It has been planned to build shelter on the way to the observatory in the nearest future.
For the present the office of Ukrainian National Authority of Emergency Situations in Ivano-Frankivsk region provides the accommodation for having a short rest in case of a bad weather but only at an urgent necessity tourists can spend the night here.
You should understandan urgent necessity as an inability to get down from a mountain, inability to place a tent, considerable worsening of the weather and other difficult situations. So, if during your walking tour you plan to spend the night on Pip Ivan Chornohirskyi, then first of all you need to rely on your own equipment, especially, on your own tent.
