Mt. Kiso Komagatake stands at an elevation of 2,956 meters, the tallest peak in the Central Alps. While there is a steep Hacchozaka hill at the beginning of the trail from the hotel, if you stay at the hotel you can leave before the first ropeway arrival, providing a quite and relaxed hike. Once you climb the steep hill and make it to the ridgeline the view opens up and all that is left is a gently sloping trail to the peak. This trail is not overly physically demanding, so most people can easily complete it in half a day. If you do decide to climb Mt. Kiso Komagatake, be sure to bring the proper clothing and gear.
