Last week-end, I finally decided to go and check out Mt. Fuji. It was a good occasion for me to go above 4,000 meters before lining up for Mount Rinjani Ultra-Trail in a few days.
Mt. Fuji is an active volcano that last erupted in 1707. It took me about 03:40’00 to reach the summit, which culminates at 3,776 meters making it Japan’s highest mountain.
I started climbing under the sun and with smothering heat. However, I ended up in the clouds with freezing temperatures on the summit. Therefore, I had to hammer down back to the start in just about an hour.
Feel free to watch the following video should you want to have a sense of how was Mt. Fuji.
