There is no proper carpark at the entrance to trail of Onamino Pond. Don’t worry, you can still park at the loading bay, along side the road, right next to the entrance. Walking up 1.2 km to Onamino Pond could take an average person more...More

If it is not cloudy, you are in for a nice surprise. Worth walking around the lake if you have time. There are plenty of volcanic rocks.

I expected it to be a fairly leisurely walk up to Unami Pond (as judging from the map it was not far away) but it actually took a good 40 minutes of constant uphill walking to get to the pond! Don't get me wrong, it's...More
