The mountain range is made up of two groups of northern and southern volcanic mountains. Enjoy the abundant mountain plants and flowers as they change with the seasons; bursting into life when the snow melts, changing colors in the autumn, and become frosted with snow and ice in the winter. You reach these mountains by ropeway. There are hiking trails through alpine plants and around marshlands, as well as ski and snowboarding slopes through frosted trees.
