The view at the top is much better than the view at Hallasan on Jeju Island. Hallasan is a little more difficult, maybe, but this mountain is actually beautiful. The scenery starts to look amazing after climbing maybe 2/3 of the way to the top....More

Great hike up the Bukhan mountain - definitely challenging enough, but not too hard and anyone without serious health issues should be able to do go up in a few hours. The final 300m ascent is something else, but the view and satisfaction is worth...More

I would go early I think the park opens at 6 or 7 am. Take The Girem line 4 exit 3 subway, bus 110b or 143, it takes a few hours to get to the top. If you are in great shape two to three hours to get to the top, if you are... More

If you'd feel better going there with a group of people you could join a meet up. If you check the meetup website there's a group called climbing in Korea. They sometimes have meet ups at Bukhansan and it's free.
