Travel Photo| Mt. Fuji descent Fujiyoshida, Japan


Snapped this pic while descending Mount Fuji in the off season – Fujiyoshida, Japan

Descending Mt. Fuji:

You don’t get much luckier than a pic like this.  At  more than 3700m above sea level, hiking Mt. Fuji is not easy task.  The unpredictable weather makes this active volcano a difficult one to photograph.

Destined to make the climb my friends and I attempted the ascent during Mt. Fuji’s off season when everything is closed.  Luckily, we made it to the top with some amazing weather, but not without some mishaps.

If you’re interested in climbing Mount Fuji in the off-season then you’ve come to the right place.
