I went there for an afternoon walk with my boyfriend on a Friday and there were barely any people around. It was incredibly peaceful and not that difficult a walk. We took the bus 143 from crown hotel near Itaewon to the end of the line travelling North. It drops you off very close to the National Park building with... More

Hiked this area almost every weekend. There is a wide variety of trails so that you can keep coming up with new routes every time you visit. Great view of Seoul once you get to the peaks as well.

To climb to the top of the mt you might need about 2 hours, and it's definitely worth it. The view was spectacle there on the top, but you probably need a pare of climbing boot to avoid some potential injuries.

You can hike the whole day there if you want. The way to the top is quite difficult. Koreans are very rude on the trail and stupid, they block the way and don't go away. You can visit several temples and Peaks.

Be aware this is a tough walk, have some good mountain shoes (beter then sneakers), a walking stick can really help, and bring enough water. When we reached one of the tops, it was cloudy so the view on Seoul was not very good. The taxi's to go back were difficult. The trick is to have your hotel name and... More

Its lovely here, its amazing that you are so close to 25 million people in Seoul. However getting your bearings here if you don't read Hangul is almost impossible. The basic hiking map provided is just some squiggles on an A4 sheet. If you go do your homework fist and print out ant directions you can find on the web... More

Great way to experience the outdoors when visiting Seoul. Dozens of well maintained trails with varying degrees of difficulty. Peaceful, with great views. On top of that, there are about 20 Buddhist temples throughout the mountain. Makes for a great day of hiking.

The trekking trails are well maintained. Views were great. Baegundae peak is quite challenging. Need strong arms and legs for the last bit to the peak.
