Kurama - 鞍馬 - Kibune - Kibuneyama - Ninose 2018-08-09 9:39
(catalan - english)

The Kurama-Kibune trek is a classic. By train from Kyoto you arrive very easily. If you do it in this way, from Kurama you can get to eat on the Kibune terraces that have on the river (really original) and if you do the other way around, from Kibune you can go for a bath in the Onsen called Kurama Hot. Spring (you need to wear spare clothes, because after walking in this heat, you're all soaked).

I had an interest in not only doing the tourist part, but also climbing the mountains. Having made the stretch from Kurama to Kibune, seeing temples, monumental trees, restaurants with terraces and the last Shinto temple of Kibune, I continued on the paved road (without a car) until the beginning of the turning path that runs over a stream. .

This path is signposted (although all indications are in Japanese), but it must be said that it has strings, many fallen trees, and some missing paths probably due to recent landslides. In this ascent you need to have a certain sense of orientation and not slip between so much rock and water. Just thinking of this ascent, I have classified this route as "difficult", the rest of the way is very easy. Above all the path becomes more evident and easier to follow, you go ridge. In all this second part of the road, from Kibune, I only greeted another walker, already almost reaching Ninose. Finally you arrive at the village of Ninose where you can take the train again (paying at the end of the journey).

I have encountered a lot of frogs, one hundred feet really big black and red (I had caught something to eat), a snake that crossed me (I'd say it wasn't a viper), dragonflies, giant butterflies ( they look like birds) ...

If you want to take a family hike you can take the Kurama - Kibune stretch, if you want to get lost in the woods, just continue on to Ninose.

Health and Legs !!

    Molt difícil trobar restes arqueològics a Japó ;-) montagut, aquí ho reconstrueixen tot. Al ser de fusta hi han temples que porten desenes de reconstruccions.
    Salut i Cames!!

    Randonnée assez sympa mais c'est un vrais challenge pour les non initiés, le chemin est très escarpé à cause des typhon et la route est souvent totalement détruite, n'hésitez pas à contourner, des cordes sont présentes sur place pour vous aider.
    Une fois arrivé en haut après 8km env à l'intersection la plus au nord, n'hésitez pas à continuer à un peu plus loin et monter en direction de la lumière, vous atterrirez sur un flanc de la montagne avec une superbe vue

    Very good experience, the beginning is not that hard, we just need to follow the road (even if some trees fell on it ahah)
    But the end, when we need to go down, it's another story... I did it a day after a rainy day, everything was still humid. I don't know if it was rly dangerous or not but I don't advise to do it if the weather is not perfect.
    Also, about ropes along the path, there are some, but some are cut because of fallen trees, so be careful.

    Thank you for this one!

    I certainly see that they have not conditioned the path yet ... it has no loss, but surely you have to walk carefully.
    Thanks for sharing your comment Cédric de Ceuyper.
