3 Days





In the eastern part of the North Japan Alps, lies the deepest and probably most beautiful valley in Japan: Kurobe Valley. 

You may also find this place as 'Kurobe gorge', due the steep cliffs that form a canyon over the Kurobe river. Surrounded by an unspoiled forest, the route towards this place has a limited access. It's open for climbers only one month during autumn.

In this hiking tour, we'll take different mountain trails. One of them will be Shimo-no-Rouka, a very challenging trail with some dangerous sections.

For this trip you must be strong and fit, and be able to walk up to 12 hours a day. Besides, you shouldn't be afraid of heights.

By the end of our traverse, we'll relax in a typical Japanese Onsen. Finally, we'll return at Unazuki-Onsen Station of Toyama Local Railway around 2.30 PM.

Would you like to be one of the few venturing out in this incredible natural setting of the North Japan Alps? Then, come with me for an incredible hiking trip! (you'll find departure dates below).
