Pikuy mountain is the highest peak of the Beskyd Watershed Ridge and the highest geographical point of Lviv region (1408 m asl). The peak is covered with picturesque rocks and steep cliffs. The views from the mountain peak offer the best panoramas in the Lviv region.
The Main Carpathian Watershed is a part of the Great European Watershed, which divides the basins of Black and Baltic seas. The largest rivers of the region, such as Dniester, Syan, Uzh, Latorytsya, Stryy, Rika, originate here. The ridge has few accessible passages, such as Uzhotsky, Veretsky, and the oldest one, Ruska Put (in Ukrainian, Rus way), known since neolithic times. This route was widely used in the Medieval period by the Rus kings for trade and wars.
Virgin beech forests cover the southern part of the Watershed Range; further to the South-West, the beech forests are listed as a part of the trans-border UNESCO World Natural Heritage site. Ukraine has one of the biggest populations of the untouched forests of beech trees, which once used to cover most parts of Europe.
