Pop Iwan is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.022m (6,634ft) above the sea level located in Ukraine.
The road to the summit, located within the Chornohora (Czarnohora) range, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. On the peak the Polish government built in the years 1936–1938 an impressive construction - Astronomical and Meteorogical Observatory, which was commonly called "Biały Słoń" ("White Elephant"). Today, the construction is in ruins. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. It’s closed by a barrier next to Maricheika Lake.
