Pylypets - here, from a height of 15 meters, bewitching cascades between andesite rocks, the Shipit waterfall drops water into the picturesque mountain valley. The waterfall originates from a large underground spring, the so-called "Sea Eye", in one of the most beautiful places in the Ukrainian Carpathians - the Borzhava meadow.
