My Favourite Hike in Japan - Mt Shirouma // 2,932m Nagano

Currently Hannah -- Oct 02
Mt Shirouma absolutely blew me away, from start to finish! This is without a doubt the best hike I've ever been on in my entire life and I'll recommend it forever!
It was a pretty challenging hike though, with endurance being the main challenge but the incredible views made it worth it 1000%.

As mentioned, we started the hike at Tsugaike Central Parking Lot, took a ropeway, then a gondola to the trailhead and began the 8+hr hike to the top (normally takes 6-7hrs).
