Along the top of the mountain there are bizarre rocks that often resemble animals. On the way to the top of Smotrych there is a mountain meadow, where you can always stop for a while, have some rest, visit the traditional mansion "khata-staya", and, if desired, to buy traditional carpathian cheese: budz, wurda or brynza, drink cool spring water.
