The Goodbye Valley is a crater remnant of Hokkaido, adjacent to Lake Toya. After the eruption of the volcano, a strange and strange valley formed by the melting rock; gray and brown rock layers plus a lot of geothermal heat from the ground to form a special volcanic landscape. Therefore, it has created the special hot spring resources of Noboribetsu. Some of them are hydrogen sulfide water, some are salt water, and some contain iron. Soaking them is beneficial to the human body.
Hell Valley is truly worthy of the name, so nature is the most powerful workmanship, as if the master paintings are generally far from the atmosphere of hell. Walking along the boardwalk to the center of the scenic spot, I smelled a sulphur smell from the air. The hot air of the smoke rushed out from the ground. It is actually a crater. It can be seen that the surrounding stones are eroded into A variety of colors, really is not like the human scene.
Transportation: Take the bus from the gate of the No. 2 JR station to the Noboribetsu hot spring town for about 20 minutes. In addition to the traditional ticket vending machine, you can now buy the ticket on the WeChat scan code, great!
October Maple Leaf Tour, boarding the Hell Valley.
It took about an hour or so from the Sapporo chartered car. It is said that it used to be a crater, so there are red leaves around the mountain pit. But the mountain crater is a layer of ash that is steaming. The air is filled with a strong smell of sulfur. It feels suffocating for a long time. The sight of the ancient Japanese who saw it here is the legendary hell scene, so it is called Hell Valley.
The entrance to Hell Valley has a wooden path to the center of the valley, which is about a few minutes away. There is a beautiful observation platform and an iron spring pool in the valley. The pool water continuously absorbs the geothermal energy. If there is time, you can stand still and watch the pool water from calm to slowly boiling, even with a temperature of more than 80 degrees. Out, be careful not to burn it.
I like nature and peace of life. The name of the farewell comes from the ancient Ainu word "", meaning white turbid river; Hell Valley is the source of the Noboribetsu hot spring, and is also the most famous attraction of Noboribetsu Onsen. The volcanic landscape is extremely spectacular.
Hell Valley is a volcanic eruption site where volcanic gases eject from the surface of the gray-yellow rock, and the surrounding air is filled with strong sulfur odors, and the grass is not born here, hence the name Hell Valley. Surrounded by mountains, the smoke is lingering, and the devils and ghosts of the local specialty holding the mace are placed in it, as if they have entered the ear and nose.
The local area has also specially developed a summer night tour route - the WISP Road, with small lights on both sides of the plank road in Hell Valley, looking from afar, winding around, the lights flickering.
The end of Hell Valley has a geyser. Every once in a while, spring water will erupt, and the temperature of the spring here can be 80 degrees. Below the Hell Valley is a hot spring street with all the hotels and restaurants on the street. If the itinerary and time are relatively generous, it is best to stay here for one night, soak up a hot spring and enjoy it.
The best time to visit the Hell Valley in Noboribetsu is 6am every day. Team visitors will not appear. Most of the ordinary tourists are still asleep. The entire Hell Valley is empty. You can see the life in the rising sun. Purple smoke effect. The big soup marsh continues to go deep, there is a natural foot bath, and it is very refreshing to get tired.
Hell Valley is the main source of Noboribetsu's hot spring waters and also an iconic hot spring in Hokkaido. The so-called "Hell Valley" is, in fact, a remnant of a crater, pervaded all year long by volcanic gas spewing from the surface of the gray and yellow rocks. The surrounding air is filled with a strong smell of sulfur, and the place is thought to resemble a scene of hell. The main attraction is the eerie volcanic valley, the center of which can be accessed by a walkway specially built for tourists.
