Dai Kiretto is a steep, rocky, scrambling trail which takes 3-4 hours to pass.
In recent years, scaffoldings were set up to decrease the risks of this advanced hike. It is STRONGLY suggested that only expert climbers inquire for Dai Kiretto hike. The sceneries are unparalleled, though with great beauty can come great challenges as serious injuries and even deaths have occurred upon this venture.
This hike is dependent upon weather conditions.
From Yari camp site, walk 2-3 hours to arrive at Minami dake hut.
There will be a, potential, required helmet rental service upon arrival at Minami dake hut. Due to economic reason, I am unable to specify whether a required helmet service will be available.
Minami dake hut is a good resting point to refresh before the challenge of Dai Kiretto.

The finish point of Dai Kiretto is Kita Hotaka hut.
