VERKHOBUZH – BUSK | 35 km (Ukraine)

Kayaking is possible seasonally on certain parts of this stretch of the river, provided the water level is high. This requires prior experience in overcoming obstacles and readiness for frequent trips to the shore with portage. The main obstacles: beaver dams, buried and low-hanging trees, shallows on the Sasiv-Bilyi Kamin stretch (4–11 km), and a dam just ahead of Bilyi Kamin. The beginning of the route is the source of the river in the village Verkhobuzh.

 The most convenient approach to the water is in the neighbouring village of Ruda Koltivska next to the road. At this point, the depth of the river is 50–70 cm. The best way to cover this segment is in a single-seater kayak (crossover kayak). This route ends in Busk. Access to the transport services for kayakers and kayaks is possible by asphalt roads within the city limits of Busk for 35 km of the route.
