I think everybody of you heard about Mount Everest(or Chomolungma). If you want to know more about it, please read this post.

Mount Everest is a legend. World’s highest mountain with its 8848 meters. Imagine only to run, or to walk, almost 9 km. It means already an effort, and not many people will do this.

Climbing these almost 9 km is much worse! You need equipment, you need oxygen, you need intermediate camps and logistics. But a wider philosophical question emerges: why some people climb mountains? Maybe they seek the Gods. The legends about the Gods on Mount Everest are an explanation for the fact that no local conquered this mountain! The New Zealand born Sir Edmund Hillary was the first to realize it, together with a frightened local sherpa Tensing Norge.

Reinhold Meissner conquered Mt Everest without oxygen mask.

Japan is frequented all-year-round because it has some of the world’s best natural hot springs. The country sits in a hotbed filled with geothermal activity which could be a good thing during volcanic calms, and sadly a bad thing when the neighboring volcano decides to wake up. It’s a good thing volcanoes tend to stay “asleep” for decades, if not centuries. If you’re visiting Japan for its hot springs, you might want to try Gyozanen and Seryo. These resorts are located in Ohara, which is just a stone’s throw away from Kyoto and very close to the Sanzenin Temple.
