Comment from locals

We found horse on your way and extremely wanted to ride them on our way back. The trip was very harder than expected. Riding horse is very expensive but wanted to be on.
Bring warm you need warm jacket otherwise it is very very cold at the summit
Do not underestimate.
You will find “Torii” that seems like we have reached the final destination but it is not. The feeling, unforgettable but great experience.
Many people in weekends, recommended to go there during weekdays.
