Went in the autumn and was absolutely worth it. I took Gwaneumsa trail up (a bit boring) and Seongpanak trail down (spectacular). Leave early - I went at 6am as summit closes around 11 - 12 depending on the season.

With a few different trails to choose from, climbing Hallasan is an experience I'd recommend to anyone visiting Jeju and wanting a close experience with its nature. Careful preparation of equipment is still necessary, as the easy trail was quite slippery even while wearing winter...More
