Mt. Fuji Yoshida Solo Trek 2nd Part; Stormy Night to Summit

6-days Revisiting Summer Japan for Mt. Fuji (3,776masl) Solo Trek

Mt. Fuji Yoshida Solo Trek 1st Part; from Nagoya to 5th Station

I hiked alone and started my night trek from 2245H at the 6th Station. Though they do not recommend to do it and this was my first time doing it alone, I have gained self-confidence as Fun-hiker in Mt. Pulag 2,922masl (Philippines), Mt. Kinabalu 4,092masl (Malaysia) and Mt. Kilimanjaro 5,895masl (Tanzania). I decided to take the risk to satisfy my urge on embracing the nature adventure. During the ascend and descend, I confirmed it was very, very dangerous if you have not enough confidence to fight for your life against the wrath of nature via heavy rains and strong winds of an almost perfect storm at a high altitude.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS TO REMEMBER DURING MT. KILIMANJARO HIKE

1. There is a high risk involved on hiking at night, so please keep your climbing to the daylight hours as possible.
2. Please refrain from hiking alone; it is all too easy to go fast and make errors in judgement when climbing alone. Also, make sure not to get separated from your companions, as the summit area and descending route can become considerably crowded.
3. Temperature and weather conditions on the mountain is prone to drastic changes. Bring your gear for rain and cold protection and avoid climbing in casual clothing.
4. Follow the designated hiking routes. Straying from the paths and taking a rest is extremely dangerous, you can get lost or can cause falling rocks.
5. Only rest in areas that are safe, do not go where there is caution of falling rocks.
6. Do not continue hiking if you feel symptoms of altitude sickness (headaches, nausea).
7. On the descending route, there are no mountain huts after the Yoshida trail.
8. Take all your trashes when you leave.
