In order to watch movies in BANFF Mountain Film Festival, we went to Norikura-kogen.
Our movie shows you the situation in the event hall.Most impressive piece in this fes. is "Split of a Second" that is a film about wingsuit flying.Very crazy and cool piece!
After the day of the film fes. we hiked Mt. Norikura.Popular route starts from Tatami-daira(畳平)(2702m) where can be accessed by bus.But we hiked from Norikura-kogen(1453m) to the summit(3026) by foot.The difference in altitude is approx. 1600m.So under forest limit we enjoyed places filled with natural beauty such as lush greenery and pure streams.And the places above forest limit commanded an extensive view of Japan north alps.Its diversified scenery was very interesting.
We saw a bear from a distance.. This happening made us a strong impression.
