Belongs to the ridge of Montenegro in the Carpathians. The height of the mountain is 2061 m above sea level. From the point of view of mountaineering, only winter ascents are of interest. Most ascents begin from the base of Zaroslyak (1100 m) and the village of Lazeshchyna (Kozmezhchik)

Mount Petros (2020.2 m) is one of the famous two-thousanders of the Ukrainian Carpathians, which is part of the Montenegrin ridge, between the mountains of Goverla, Sheshul. Geographically, this is the Transcarpathian region.

The mountain is called by the Romanians petrós (rocky), therefore its name is not derived from “Peter”, but from the Roman word “stone”. From the point of view of mountaineering, only winter ascents are of interest.
