Making up some 5% of Ukraine's land are the Carpathian Mountains in the west and the Crimean Mountains in the South. Ukraine's mountain ranges create a wonderful habitat for a variety of fauna and flora, ideal for ecotourism. The highest mountain in Ukraine is Mount Hoverla, part of the Carpathian range, measuring some 2061m high.
Ukraine is a country that is biologically rich in flora and fauna occupying landscapes of varying types, from rocky mass areas to mountainous regions. This has led to large-scale biodiversity conservation in an attempt to preserve natural habitats for future use, unchanged by human destruction and pollution.
