“don't underestimate the difficulty of the track”
Review of Mt. Miyanouradake

Mt. Miyanouradake
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 April 2015

Well worth the effort we were extremely lucky to have mostly fine weather and stunning views which included Tanegashima. The marsh area is reminiscent of the walls of Jerusalem walk in Tasmania. Simply beautiful and atmospheric with swirling mists. We've done a reasonable amount of walking but the progress on this walk was slower than I've experienced. You had to carefully consider every step - lots of rock hopping, walking down granite boulders, tree roots etc. The second day out after the hut walking past jomonsgi is much easier. Be warned you need an early start. We started 8am and got to the hut at 6pm. Everyone went to sleep by 7pm and woke about 5am or earlier. Totally different to Australia.

I did a lot of hiking. But Yakushima mountains give lots of water stream at high elevation. The rocks near the peaks are very impressive.

I went at the beginning of March 2014. I did this over two days, staying in one of the mountain huts overnight. It was still quite cold and snow covered a lot of the path the last 2 hours up to the top. Certainly worth the extra effort to make it to the top although be wary of the time. I got here for the sunrise and it was absolutely spectacular.

We took one of the small hiking trails from the rainforest up the mountain, it was very nice and a little bit exhausting :)
