Beautiful mountain in Seoul City.

This mountain was located in Seoul, and had good accessibility to Seoul resident. The mountain had various course, and good to enjoy climbing to Intermediate level. On the top, there was steep and had good Seoul view. Overall, there was good mountain in city area except overcrowded status. But there was good mountain among capital area.

이곳은 대한민국에서 높은 산입니다.자연과 숲 그리고 전경이 아주 좋습니다.
운동화는 꼭 안전한 걸 들고가세요.어린아이는 올라가기 힘들 수 있습니다.

This is the highest mountain in Korea. The nature, forest and views are very good.
Make sure to go for safe sneakers. Young children can have a hard time climbing.

Must visit if you like nature and hiking

I had a great time here. Climbing the highest peak was a bit challenging but the view was totally worth it. Make sure to bring gloves with you - there are ropes holding which can be painful.

Beautiful!

Its like stepping into a movie and reliving South Korean Joseon Dynasty again. This was so sensational. It is spectacular how this is divided from the modern world. If I were to go back to South Korea, I would visit more of the ''peaceful'' places and visit this one again.

Not only can you relive this, but there was a building right in the mid of the mountain, where you could write your wishes on a roof tile. I also bought a tiny souvenir which I still have hanging after so many years.

Advised: Take some proper mountain hiking equipment with you (especially shoes), if you wish to see the top. Because of the fact that I did not wear mountain shoes, I slided down easily.

Superb! Chose your level

Amazing place we wanted to do it for fun enjoying and we asked at the entrance the forest Guard what to do. I ll add the map and the beautiful pictures of the temple there. A big harder at the end for non sportive but OK. Something to do for the view of the city from there, the rock and the temple. In Feb it was peaceful with a bit of snow there but really something to do.

Easy hike, safe for solo hiker.
Oct 2019
It is a relatively easy hike even for those without hiking experience. The trails is easy to navigate, it should take not more than 6 hours (return trip) for beginners. The only difficult part is near the peak due to steep climb.

Went there in late October when the leaves started to turn red and yellow. It was very windy at the peak, I'd suggest to bring extra layer of cloth for comfort. Although I hiked alone, I wasn't lonely because along the way, there were many people (especially friendly ahjummas) offered me food and started a conversation despite the language barrier.

Well worth checking out

I arrived into Seoul at the New Year celebrations and found that the transport was fully booked and everything in Seoul would be closed. the lady at the hotel recommend this place. I went more for something to do while waiting for my flight the next day but was so pleasantly surprised. Its a beautiful National Park with really really nice hiking. The top rock scrambling is also fun if you aren't afraid of heights. it ended up being one of the highlights of my trip! If you like nature then I really recommend it.

One of best trekking trails
Jan 2020 • Friends
Four of us took subway and continued with bus to the place. We overestimated that it is easy trail but the fact very tough in cold and partly snow which made it slippery. The best trail we had with scenery, stones, frozen rivers and finally we reached Bogungmun gate one of the castle’s gates. Another tough and different going down and took us 5 hours to complete.
