The Carpathian Mountains are the eastern wing of the great central mountain system of Europe curving 1500 km (~900 miles) along the borders of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Romania, and the Ukraine.
The Carpathians, which only in a few places attain an altitude of over 2500 m, lack the bold peaks, the extensive snow-fields, the large glaciers, the high waterfalls and the numerous large lakes which are found in the Alps.
They are nowhere covered by perpetual snow, and glaciers do not exist, so that the Carpathians, even in their highest altitude, recall the middle region of the Alps, with which, however, they have many points in common as regards appearance, structure and flora.

 Hiking the Ukrainian Carpathians
The first time I went to the Carpathians I was lucky enough to have been invited by the graduating class of School #8, Chervonohrad, Ukraine, some of whose students I taught in 1993 on a summerlong stint as an English teacher with the Ukrainian National Association/Prosvita project "Teaching English in Ukraine".
Although the mountains I saw on that trip were by no means artificial, I was a bit disappointed because I led myself to believe that we would be hiking up mountains with veritable timberlines, and in an alpine setting comparable to the Chornahora.
We camped in a mountain valley, sang songs at night, and essentially went for the social atmosphere, not the mountaineering.

 CER | Carpathian Mountains: Felling our future?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In the Carpathian mountains, the first major change came between the 14th and 17th centuries, when Wallachian shepherds migrated across the ridges from east to west and, with axe and fire, created ridge-top meadows for their flocks.
A mixture of natural factors-extreme mountain weather and insect pests-combined with acid rain triggered a sudden mass dying that literally denuded the ridgetops within a matter of years.
In this sense, the estimated 220 fragments of natural woods covering over 110,000 ha across the Carpathian mountains are a treasure for all of Europe-not least as reminders of what the rest of the continent has lost.
