Kumano TREK, English Speaking Guides

 Description

It is a two day walk from the Hongu area to Kumano Nachi Taisha and the Nachi falls, Japan’s tallest.  Each goes over a mountain pass: the first day is called Kogumotori-goe, and the second Ogumotori-goe.

The Kogumotori-goe begins near the Ukegawa trail head and finishes in Koguchi, where walkers overnight.

The Ogumotori-goe is the tougher of the two, climbing continuous (almost 800 meters in elevation gain) over the first 4 kilometers. At Funami-toge pass though, walkers are blessed with a panoramic view of the expansive Pacific Ocean for their efforts.

The Nachi falls is believe to be divine and is an inspirational spot to complete the trek.
