The hike to Happo pond from Hakuba
Happo pond was selected as Japan’s 36 most beautiful places by CNN in 2017.
— a village known for its winter skiing amid the mountains of Nagano Prefecture — is a classic trail in the Japanese Alps. Surrounded by the Hakuba Peaks, the pond is 2,060 meters above sea level. What the pond lacks in size, it makes up for in beauty, reflecting the 3,000 meter tall peaks in its quiet waters.
It takes about 5 minutes by car from MAHOROBA to gondra station, 20 minutes by foot.
