  • Great view, long track to the peak. Prepare water and meals for break. Better equip with gloves to pull yourself up using the steep rope provided in the park and with good hiking shoes as well. You can choose to take different route up and down the hill. If you require map, cost 1000won.

  • I was visiting this place with some foreigners and local Koreans by a group called climbing in korea in meetup. It took 6+ hours to hike through the mountain and the view was wonderful. You will feel grateful when you will be top at the Mountain.

  • I was scared to piss of climbing the last leg of this hike... so I didn’t. Erin did and got pictures of the top of the mountain on my phone so that I can tell anyone not reading this review that I made it and can show them pictures. Seriously, it was some scary stuff. I was NOT wearing the right shoes and I am TERRIFIED of heights. It didn’t scare the old korean men blazing past us on trail however. They are the real MVPs. Other than the fact that I am a soft-boiled egg and refuse to climb bare faced rocks exposed to the sun (hence the globe of sunscreen on my face), this was a beautiful hike and we had a great time on what was a magnificent day. A word of advice- take a taxi half way up because it takes at least an hour to walk from the metro to the base camp. Yes I said “base camp”. This hike is hardcore.

  • A must visit in Korea. Take the simple rout if you have kids. And it's not that simple

  • It took my breath out but worth it. Be fully equipped.go there by 7:00
