MT. FUJI CLIMB EXPEDITION - 7 days/ 5 nights (JMF)

 

Tour operates between July 13 - August 26

 

Those who have not conquered it dream about it -- those who have are forever inspired by it. Mount Fuji, that is -- the highest mountain in Japan that measures over 12,000 ft. situated at the border of southeastern Yamanashi and Shizuoka. With its unrivaled magnificence and beautiful conic shape, Mt. Fuji is prominently the symbol of Japan -- and Explorient is proud to take you on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure to experience nature at its finest. 

 

This unforgettable voyage begins with touching down on the planet's most vibrant and ultra-modern city -- Tokyo, a sanctuary of untold natural beauty, magnificent history and bustling city life. Its contrasts between the old and the new, the traditional and modern makes Tokyo an exciting place for travelers to visit the world over. Staying at the Hyatt Regency Tokyo you will enjoy lavish comfort in the very heart of Japan's thriving capital. After a couple of days of remarkable sights, vivacious entertainment, and just pure excitement, it's time to get physical...  

 

Your quest for Fuji San begins at the 5th Station, the very point where the adventurer is unmistakably separated from the common tourist. Divided into three phases, you first embark on a 6-hour ascend to the 8th station, where you're joined by great camaraderie with like-minded active enthusiasts from around the globe. After a short rest in a rustic mountain hut, you advance in darkness on an overnight trek to the summit.  It is here where you witness the most spectacular sunrise of a lifetime. After your "breakfast over sunrise" followed by a challenging 4-hour descend to 5th Station, you are graciously rewarded to an Onsen experience at the Yamanakako Spa before returning to the Big City.

 

Get ready for the Adventure of a Lifetime!
