Mount Ashibetsu Climbing Notes

    Like2hike from Japan

    There are two trails (the old and the new) which you can do as a loop, or you can just go up and back the same trail. I went up and back the new trail, which is the shorter of the two trails and takes between 8 and 10 hours (round trip) to complete. We did it in 9 hours and 12 minutes including breaks.

    Bears are not uncommon in this area, so making noise or bringing a bear bell is recommended.

    The distance is 12km return with an elevation change of 1500 meters.
