Trekking with the Last Remaining Snow of Mt. Gassan
※Targeted for people with snowy mountain hiking experience and the appropriate equipment.

Hike your way to the 1984m (6509ft) peak of Mt. Gassan from April to June, with the last remaining snow. We will hike step by step through large mountain valleys using ice axes and climbing spikes.

If the sun comes out, you can enjoy a breathtaking view created from the snow contrasting the blue sky. After using the lift to climb to an elevation of 1500m (4900ft), it should take about 3 hours on the snow to reach the summit of Mt. Gassan. The return trek will take about 2 hours.
