Spring / Fall
Mt. Ontake Trekking
Welcome to 216WORKS’ home mountain!
Trail up to the top of Mt. Ontake,
one of the 3 sacred mountains in Japan
【From the trailhead of Hida-Osaka 】
The peak area of Mt. Ontake spreads 4 km / 2.5 mi from the south to the north and 2 km / 1.2 mi from the east to the west. That's said, Mt. Ontake is the mountain of which peak area is the biggest of all mountains in Japan. There are several trailheads scattered around the foot of the mountain, and one of them is at Nigorigo hot spring area in Hida-Osaka.
216WORKS, as the professional guide office originated in Hida-Osaka, we proudly make your trekking trip up to our Mother mountain safe, educational and, more importantly, fun.
The tour will be carried with multiple groups up to 5 people. Don't miss this chance of the annual tour especially to the shining blue crater pond with ice in June and the comfortable late summer mountain in September.
For those who are not used to the high-altitude trekking, we will set up an online pre-check meeting on Zoom to give you some tips for the trekking and make sure we have all gear and clothing ready for the day.
