Bukhansan National Park - Review
While visiting Seoul, one has to make sure that the final stop in their travels in this magical city filled with modernist images is amongst nature. Nature in all its splendor is what a visitor will get to see in this national park located in Gyeonggi and Seoul.

Bukhansan National Park, Seoul Reviews
It is a amazing place for climbing in city. I was lucky and weather was not hot. After gym-area not many people there. Some ways are not easy, not always easy understand were are you: on the track or not. This national park is my favorite place in Seoul.
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.
Great day hike + view. I recommend.
Enjoyed hiking close to the summit but unable to climb the summit due to low drinking water reserve and very high humidity and unusual hot weather. We hiked starting at Bukhansanseong information center and ended at Baegundae information center. The trail is for advanced hikers from Bukhansanseong information center to .3km to the peak and .3km is for expert hikers. We took shorter trail on the way down is for intermediate hikers and this trail have shelters to buy water and snacks.
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.
