Vladyslav Terzyul (Ukrainian: Владислав Олександрович Терзиул; 18 June 1953 in Artyom, Primorsky Krai, Russia – 17 May 2004), was an Ukrainian alpinist, one of the world's premier high-altitude climbers.

He is said to be one of the few people to have climbed all eight-thousander peaks[1][2] and the first Ukrainian ever. However this claim is disputed because he did not reach the highest point on Shishapangma (8027m), but instead stopped at Shishapangma Central (8013m).

Vladislav Terzyul died descending from the summit of Makalu on May 17, 2004, at an altitude of about 8300 metres.
