Any suggestions for approx. 3 day moderately difficult hike in July?
Hi Gary. We would like to do a 3 day (or slightly longer) hike in July. We hike quite a bit in New Zealand, since we live here, and we have done the Annapurna Base Camp, Machu Picchu (Inca trail), and Tour de Mont Blanc. We also plan to do Mt. Fuji while in Japan.
I like a challenge, however am not keen on too much technical hiking. I have looked at the circuit from Kamikochi to Mt. Oku-Hotaka, Karasawa, Tokugawa, and back to Kamikochi. This looks quite tough.
So started looking at Sarukura to Mt. Shirouma, thru the ice valley. This is dangerous as well, due to rockfall.
I am really stuck on ideas. I have the Cicerone book, however the maps are confusing.
What would you recommend? Thank you.
