MOUNT FUJI, JAPAN (30 June - 3 July 2018)

A spectacular weekend seeing 9 ATC ladies and a 12 year old Junior Trekker take on the challenge to watch the sunrise at the summit of Japan's most celebrated and sacred mountain. All 10 trekkers achieved their summit of Mount Fuji (3776m). 

Kicking off the trekking season, we followed the popular Yoshida Trail, stopping off at a Japanese Tea House at the 8th Station. We starting off walking in the clouds; the views down below obstructed! As we pushed on and ascended, the clouds disappeared and we were rewarded for our hard work, with the beautiful volcanic scenery. 

Watching the night lights of Tokyo from the hut were truly mesmerising. We woke early and followed the challenging trail to the peak, determined to make it for sunrise. It was worth it - simply superb, the volcano showing off the natural beauty of Japan's lush fields, lakes and surrounding mountains. 

This international group of ATC members walked, talked, shared some brilliant moments experiencing the local culture and food, taking on personal challenges and achieving more than thought possible. We are so proud of each and everyone of you! Congratulations on your achievements. 

“Willpower and reflection very often allow us to climb up the highest mountains” Marie du Deffand
