Hoverlia [Говерля; Hoverlja]. Map: V-5. The highest mountain in Ukraine (2,061 m); part of the Chornohora mountain group in the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains. The springs from which the Prut River originates are found here.

It is located at the boundary between the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve and Carpathian National Nature Park.
