Rely on your own equipment!

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 understand an 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.
