|Day 1||Nakabusa Mt. Tsubakuro Trail Head ~ Enzansou Mountain Hut ~ Mt. Tsubakuro (roundtrip to summit)||5hr|
|Day 2||Enzansou Mountain Lodge ~ Nakabusa Mt. Tsubakuro Trail Head||2hr 40min|
From the trailhead, the Kassen Ridge trail ascends 1250m up to the hut and is considered one of the three steepest ascents in the Alps. The trail is long and steep but is well maintained making it a good introductory course to the Northern Alps for beginner to intermediate hikers. Stop by Benches No 1, 2,3 and Fujimi bench to rest along the way as well as the Kassen Hut which although it doesn’t have accommodations, offers food including a local “mountain” specialty – watermelon! Upon reaching Enzansou, check-in and make one more push up to the summit and back.
