One of the most popular pastimes in Seoul is hiking and this stunning national park just outside the city is a local favorite. Aside from a variety of hiking trails for every skill level, you’ll also see lots of flora and fauna, temples and ancient fortresses.

I looked for an accurate time for the hike to baegundae peak and found conflicting reports. I am a steady but not serious walker and it took me 2.5 hours up and 1.5 hours down. The signs can be a big misleading as lots seem...More

Especially beautiful in the Autumn, though there are crowds, everyone is pleasant and it's a really nice way to enjoy the space a little outside Seoul. Just beware of American and Chinese tourists, they're the only rude ones and they will embarrass you by playing...More

We chose BUKHANSANSUNG course and it took us roughly 5 hours to complete the hike (round trip). Do bring food and plenty of water as there is no food/water once you start the hike. Also bring along mosquito repellant as there are many mosquitos at...More

Absolutely amazing views. We went on a Monday, since other landmarks tend to be closed this day. Though the hike was by no mean easy (and I hike regularly!) the views at the top were amazing. To get the full view, you'll need to go...More

It is a good and fun hike. Unfortunatly the route is not that exciting as I hoped it to be. Furthermore, the hike was not that difficult either. At the end it becomes a big challenging, in sense of steepness. Therefor, I would not recommend...More

I would say April or May would be a good time to go as the temperatures are more moderate between 15-28 degrees C. Don't try it in July or August because it will be in the mid to high 30's.
