The park rises up high into mountain peaks and dips down into dense woodland valleys. Rapid rivers, beautiful beaches and grand shrines bursting with abundant flora and fauna along the World Heritage Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range make the park a natural playground offering abundant opportunities for wild adventure and spiritual enlightenment.

Protected by canopies of thick forest, centuries of enlightenment seekers have been privy to the spiritual wisdom whispered through trunk, leaf, rock and water drop.
