Yeongsil Trail (hallasan National Park) Reviews & Ratings
Still renovating the shelter...toilet really don't smell that nice...must bring your own wipes and throw all your trash at the foot of the mountain, they have a cut off for hikers to be allowed to proceed at the top of the mountain. If can't be in shelter by 1pm, just don't waste your energy climbing. People are required to start descending by 2:30 pm. Make sure you have enough water. I needed 1.5 L just enough for me to go round trip, and got 3 boiled eggs and banana for lunch and lots of snacks. Salt packs were also helpful. We were not professional hikers, you won't need a guide, there are lots of signages along the way. Also don't be surprised to see a 4 or 5 year old kid and ajuma and ajushis hiking...Koreans really love hiking, rest if you must but don't quit. If you start by 8am you can reach the top but won't have enough time to rest at the peak. I suggest start early around 5am to enjoy the view from the top.
No water, no food for sales at all. Please be fully prepared
Can get an inspiration and a mystique even you should spend to get there for 5-8.5hrs. The height of Mt. Halla is at 1,950 meters. This mountain is highest in South Korea. Need to have the essential gear and to be appropriately dressed. Start early before 7, reach the 2nd mountain shelter before 12pm! There is two different trail to catch up. '성판악(Seoungpanak)' is easier trail than '관음사(Gwaneumsa Temple)'. I recommend to take 'Sungpanak' trail if you have children or you are beginner for climbing or you are not a peson in regular exercise.
Great hiking. Not for beginner though lol
Satisfying destination for hiking lovers
