Animal trail walking

This tour takes you on a walking tour along an "Animal trail", which was created by the trampling of wild animals such as antelopes, hares, foxes and wild boars. While walking along the roadless path, we will observe the remains of food, feces, and markings on trees caused by rubbing/sharpening of horns and antlers. By straying from the "human path," we can see the world of wildlife, which exists like a parallel universe. This interesting experience will take you into a world that you have never seen before. The world before you will look completely different.

Plan Contents

During the snowy season

Winter is the easiest season of the year to look for animals and their tracks because the leaves have fallen off the trees and visibility is good. During the snowless season, you can see various tracks accumulated during the summer and autumn seasons. During the snowy season, it is fun to deduce the behavior of animals based on the footprints left clearly in the snow.

The air is thick with the presence of animals

The forest, where the tour takes place, is usually closed to people and frequented by wild animals. You will find traces of animals digging holes, eating buds, drinking water, and rubbing their bodies against the bark of trees. Here and there, you can also find droppings that have different characteristics for each animal. The air is thick with the presence of animals.
