This Wikiexpedition was held on 22-28 of January at Marmaros reserve area, which is the part of the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve (CBR). Number of participants - 7 people (3 environmentalists and 4 photographers, who specialize on the wild nature): Василюк Олексій, BioDasha, Nataliia Shevchenko, Bogomaz Mykhayilo, Konung Yaropolk, Marushchak Oleksii.

The expedition had 6 members and 5 volunteers, who joined the expedition at their own expense. Previously it was planned that 7 members would go, but, the disease of one of them and work of another one had not allowed their plans to happen. Therefore, the expedition had some changes.

Descriptive report[ред.]

The first day[ред.]

Marmaros range is the border territory with Romania and being there must be necessarily agreed with border guards. The expedition was based in the alpine shelter, located at an altitude of 1540 m a.s.l. The first lifting day was the most difficult. Although a part of the way to the shelter from village Dilove was overcome by the GAZ-66 (we were brought to the Jalyn tract), the group managed to get to a tourist hut only in the night.

The second day[ред.]

During the preparation process wikiexpedition group planned to visit several peaks of Marmaros massif: Berlebashk, Menchul, Petros Marmarosky, Pip Ivan, trying to take photos of golden eagles, visit Yalynskii waterfall and marble quarry. However, the weather had made adjustments in most of these plans. Because of the dense sky golden eagle could not be shot at all. We were unable to get to the most of the peaks’ tops because of the ice crust, strong winds and lack of climbing equipment. So on the second day part of the group went towards Petros Marmaroskii crossing Berlebashka mountain. However, in 4 hours we had only reached the top Berlebeshka (1733.9 m a.s.l.) mountain, and its valley was covered with dense firn. The other part of our group was taking photos of surroundings near the shelter (base camp), experimenting with techniques of photo and video shooting in bad weather, in conditions of the full moon and timelapses. It was filmed Berlebashka’s top, the top of Pip Ivan Marmaroskii, a gorge near the tourist shelter.

The third day[ред.]

On the third day the group with two experienced guides, tried to climb the Pip Ivan, but, because of the strong wind and dense firn (snow and ice pressed together) we hadn’t overcome 200 meters to the top. There was filmed the process of raising on Pip Ivan and formation called kukhta, about which an article in Ukrainian Wikipedia was later complemented and illustrated, as by 2011 there had been only a list of people with the surname “Kukhta” without explanation the content of this word.

The fourth day[ред.]

On the fourth day the weather became better. This made it possible to take photos of rare lichens, White Stream, and climb to the Yalynskii waterfall. Before going to the village Dilove for the next day the group spent one night at the turn to the waterfall. To get here from the shelter on the foot of Pip Ivan we had to come down to about 900 meters and after that regain 700 meters. We should also mention waterfall - the highest fountain in the Carpathians. Unlike well-known Shipot and Hooke, Yalynskii waterfall is relatively inaccessible, that allows him to keep its original appearance. In this case, shooting videos and photos of this unique tract is the most interesting thing especially in winter, when a thin stream turns into massive accumulation of ice-buds. Also, in the valley of river Bilyy there were found specimens of endangered lichen Lobaria pulmonaria, listed in the Red Book of Ukraine.

Лист про те що вся інформація про заповідні території публічна

Expedition participants consider it to be necessary to significantly develop wikiinformation about national parks, biospheral and natural reserves. To reach this goal, we offer:

To develop content structure of each of the following articles modeled on article Dunai Biosphere Reserve, which is currently the most complete and extensive. To connect pages contently confined to each specific reserve or national park (towns, mountains, hotels and camp sites, touristic routes, place names, endemic species of flora and fauna, etc.) among themselves and with the article about protected areas. To ask the Nature Reserve Fund to provide information about their institution (for example - the first volume chronicle of national park or nature reserve that contains all the basic information) for placing it on the wiki *. To translate articles about reserves and national parks of Ukraine in other languages. To conduct wikiexpeditions, theme weeks and other incentives aimed at filling Ukrainian Wikipedia with thematic information about protected areas.

Members of the expedition received a letter from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, from which it follows that all the information on the Nature Reserve Fund is open.
