Kamikochi
Home | Contents | Bay of Bengal Trip

On Sunday the 28th of July, I went trekking with two of my students. They took me to a national park called Kamikochi. We drove for about two hours from Suwa, and then hiked for 6 hours from 4,500 feet up to 7,000 feet, where we camped.

After three hours of hiking, we crossed over this bridge and started up the mountain.

The campground

Once at the top, my tired body was relieved to see the campground. We pitched our tents and headed off for a beer.

A very refreshing beer
