Ukraine Carpathian Mountains 5 Days Enduro

Hi everyone,
Here i im starting planning my small adventure in Carpathian Mountains In Ukraine for june 2013
Plan is me and my 3 mates load 4 bikes in my van 2 Ktm 450 and 2 Honda Crf 450 start our trip from England to Ukraine Mukachevo not far from Hungarian border 1500miles, stop in Mukachevo and have rest day or 2 from trip, after that load our bikes with all our gear tent sleeping bag etc, and in to Carpathian Mountains for 5 days.
The plan is to get to Mountain Goverla Highest Mountain in Ukraine and back to Mukachevo in loop so we don't do the same lanes 2 times we looking to do OFF road 90% if possible, the rest 10% on the road for petrol and food purchases hope to do 600-700 kilometres loop in total in 5 days if possible.
We did similar trip in 2011 but we didnt made it to Goverla as we got lost a lot so much so that when we where in middle of nowhere in deep woods we seen Bear, that was the scariest moment of my life and one bike front bearings broke so we lost lots of time, we didnt prepare the route then we just foloved dirt tracks and some times we got to dead ends, some times we gone in loop, and some times we seen Bear
So this time we looking to go a bit more organised and there for im starting this thread in hope to find some help with Gps tracks, map routes, places to see, any info would be big help, anyone who did this adventure in Carpathian Mountains and can share, and hope i don't need to see that bear again

Here is my small video from our 2011 Adventure in Carpathian Mountains

Thank you Victor

Hey, Ive got the same idea! Although I was thinking sept rather than june. Hopefully some people will chime in with recommendations - might have better luck if this thread was moved to EMEA, rather than asia. MOD help?

That sounds like a great trip, I was born in those mountains. I came to the US while still in diapers, but I did go back in '96. Came home and gave my mother a big hug for getting us out of there.

There is an old decrepit castle up there as well as a series of 3 cool old tanks. I'll try to find out the exact location of both.

Me and another 2 friends are going on our 250/450s this summer to basically the same Ukraine Carpathians. Im wondering if you have some gps tracks to share?
