Hakuba

Hakuba

  • Where: This is in Nagano - not giving map as most of us are using navi now.
  • What: You can do trekking, mountain view and we also saw people doing paragliding.

We started for Hakuba at 7 AM. We took couple of stops at parking areas an reached for breakfast and lunch and reached near mount Iwatate around 1 PM.

You can take gandola to mountain top and a shorter life to watch flowers.
After this we checked-in and just walked around our hotel till it started getting darker.
Next morning we went Happo-ne. This is for mountain view and trekking. You will need to take gandola to first stop [there is restaurant here - and very junior and senior members rested here while we went ahead]. After this we took lift to next stop ... then one more to next. After that trekking for about one and half hours. It's worth it.
Only one complaint: We were kind of disappointed that the pond at the top is not exactly as huge as it looked in pictures.
