Full description
Go off the beaten path in Kyiv by diving into the legends and myths of the Bald Mountain, also known as Lysa Hora. Follow your guide through a hiking route to the top of the mountain for a thrilling experience. Meet your guide at the hotel and be driven to the foot of the mountain where the hiking starts. The route itself is not complicated. Get ready for a trail with winding paths, scenic hills, and mysterious tunnels. A nature reserve not far from the city center, Lysa Hora is ideal for hiking. It is believed to be a place with a special energy. Some people say that it’s haunted. Moreover, legend says that it is a place of the witches’ Sabbath. In different periods Lysa Hora has served as a fortification complex, a prison, and a pagan temple. Apart from the mysteries of Bald Mountain, enjoy its nature.
