Spring in the Carpathians – is a special season. In the mountains the snow can stay till May, in some places even longer. As it has been accumulated during the whole winter, it melts for several months. During that period all the rivers fed by melted snow flow their rapid streams widening downward from the sources. At that period, at the end of April and beginning of May, all the funs of exciting rafting gather on the Black Cheremosh banks in the deep Carpathians.
