Requires a certain level of fitness, and the signs get less English the further you venture from the start. The Koreans who were the only ones we saw on the walk roam all over the mountain, so try and remain on the widest most used path. The higher up you go the more spectacular the views become, so if you... More

I like this Mountain. You can choose many different trails, and each trail has its own beauty. Check out some traditional Korean food while you making your way to go down.

We took some time to hiking the trails on our trip to Seoul, and it was well worth it! It is very serene, it is hard to believe you are so close to the city. A must see if you love the outdoors!

Really ice, with great views and photos. The drive up made you feel a bit sick though. I really enjoyed it. I would recommend going there.

This is worth the hike! If you're on the fence about climbing a mountain, I encourage you to go for this one. The only complaint is that I needed to use my inhaler halfway up. :P But that's on me, not the mountain! I met a couple of kindly older gentlemen and we shared a picnic under the trees at... More

If it is your first time here I suggest climbing the tallest peak. Just get on bus 704 from whatever station is closest and walk through main gate, you will see the signs. It is around 4 km to the top. Entrance is free, there is no food or drinks to buy after the road is no longer paved, so... More

Go to gupabal station and take bus 704. Then prepare to spend several hours conquering Bukhansan. The road was long so bring sufficient water; 3-4 Liter should be adequate. The forest walk was uneven and full of rocks and dirts and remember this: climbing is tiring but it is less risky while descending down was easier but more dangerous. The... More

If you aren't so much a city person, you must go here to get away from the hustle and bustle of Seoul. If you are an outdoorsy person, but don't have enough time for one of Korea's many gorgeous national parks, then this is a nice alternative, just a short bus ride from Seoul. From the Bukchon Hanok village, we... More
