Red carpet in autumn
The season of red leaves is too good to miss. From the end of September, the leaves begin changing color around the top of the mountain, from the beginning of October around the middle of the mountain, and from mid-October around the foot of the mountain. The peak is from the beginning to the end of October. The gorgeous view with red leaves beneath you is one of the enticements.
White and silver view of soft rime
From February to March, soft rime decorates the mountain. The beautiful and mysterious view is like art in white and silver. The big, soft rimes covered completely in snow are called “Snow Monsters.” The landscape covered with soft times as far as the eye can see is overwhelming.
