  • Breathtaking scenery and landscape , overlooking Mt Yari 槍ヶ岳. It is just so stunning and I spent some more times to have a rest at this point for photo taking . I was taking the 表銀座縦走 route and was starting from 中房溫泉,it took around 5-6 hrs hike from 燕岳登山口. This route to Mount Tsubakuro is a rather easy to hike one with more stairs at the beginning . Quite a many hikers will choose to stay overnight at 燕山莊 while I and my friends continued our trailwalk towards 大天荘 .
  • Beautiful, highly recommended mountain that can be day-climbed by fit hikers. Access to the trailhead is via a winding road, which is very narrow for about 9km and must be hairy if you drive it with weekend-level oncoming traffic. There are huts and benches at multiple points on the climb, but only one free water source which is near the bottom. The climb is mostly steep through woodland with no views, and finally opens into alpine vegetation around 2500m. The final landscape reveal at the top is stunning, great views over the other mountains and the distinctively rounded rock formations on Tsubakuro itself. In terms of difficulty among famous day climbs in the Japan Alps, it's much harder than Karamatsudake, harder than Jiigatake but slightly easier than the snow gorge route up Shiroumadake. This area also gets better weather than the Hakuba region. I saw that Enzan-so, the pretty ridgetop hut does curry rice for 900 or 1100 with a cutlet, cheap enough to not bother carrying lunch up yourself. For cyclists, the road to the trailhead is a really good Cat 1 climb on a road bike. Very steep in parts.
  • 中房温泉登山口から合戦尾根、燕山荘経由で登頂しました。燕山荘で宿泊したのでリュックを部屋に置いてカメラ片手に燕山荘から30分強で行けます。 合戦尾根中は小雨でしたが、燕尾根に出たら晴れて槍ヶ岳も見えました。 燕山荘から燕岳までの間、西からの日光による自分の影が安曇野側のガスがスクリーンとなって映るブロッケン現象と白い虹が現れて貴重な体験と写真が撮れました。 山頂からは360度の素晴らしい展望が望めますが、5、6人位のスペースしか有りませんので登山者が多い時は長居できないかもしれません。 槍ヶ岳の穂先をバックに逆行を活かして感じの良いシルエット写真も撮れました。
  • 登山口からいきなり急登が続きます。登山初心者にはちょっとキツいかもですが、子供も高齢者も元気に登ってますので、無理せずに自分のペースでゆっくり登れば大丈夫です。燕岳はとても美しい山なので是非行ってみてください。燕山荘もとても良い山小屋なので是非宿泊してほしいです。
  • 白い花崗岩が砂のように崩れて雪のような山でした。高山植物も素敵。穂高や槍や錫杖とは違う滑かさが女性的。小学生高学年なら一日でピストン出来ますが、無理せず燕山荘でゆっくりする方がいいと思います。山歩きして後悔しない二百名山です。
