Takachiho-kyo Gorge

Travel Guide - Takachiho-kyo Gorge


The 7 kilometers long cliffs here, formed through the erosion of lava from Mt. Aso, rise to a height of 80 - 100 meters, and display a magnificent seasonal beauty with fresh greenery in the early summer and brightly colored leaves in the autumn. The Manai Falls, that flow into the Gokase River from 17 meters high, are illuminated in the summer months to create a mystical backdrop. In addition to strolling along the walking trail, visitors can also enjoy taking a boat out on the river to view this spectacular scenery from the water.
