    Just found this link. I don't remember ever getting an email to rate. I remember this trip fondly. This is an actual hike up the mountain. The large rocks are our stairs. It was strenuous for me. When I got to the Buddha Temple about three fourth way up, I opted to go to the temple instead of hiking up to the summit. The temple was quite a sight! I loved it. The best was yet to come after lunch! I LOVED the Korean style spa! They scrubbed off a layer of my dead skin. My had literally looked younger. Even my husband can tell the difference!

    SAVE YOUR !! Disappointed that our hike destination was certainly not the one featured in the picture!! Hike was one of the shorter and easier routes that ended at the rock that looks like a hat. On the way to the rock, we passed on a lovely stream and a buddhist temple. Our guide was nice however, didn't bother informing us of any details, background, history, etc where we're going or where we're at. Most important, she didn't even check if we had all the proper necessities for the hike and not even offering water! She was on her phone most of the time while hiking ahead of us, not even bothering to look back if we're ok until we asked her to slow down and give us a helping had when necessary. It's more like just hiking with a friend, not a tour guide! Basically she just walked/hiked and led the way..that's it! She didn't even want to stop at the temple saying it's part of another tour but we insisted - how can we not?! Best to save and hike on your own.

    As for the Korean style spa, it's just ok. I've been to several jijimbangs before so I know the drill. This spa only offers 20 minutes of scrub usually 40 mins, barely there cucumber mask left on for 5 minutes and 15 minutes for mud wraps not really a wrap - more like mud thrown from a bucket at you and DIY spread the mud all over your body. We added an hour massage extra which was so-so. The spa is very clean, first steam room is nicely hot but the other two for the mud wraps were not. Pools were warm enough. One wouldn't know any better if you're new to a Korean-style spa. This is a shadow of what it really is..short and very basic. We weren't even offered any kind of fruit, food or drink except water. Usually there's beverage and food for free available at these places.

    It's not that bad if we didn't know any better kind of tour. Such a shame..

    Super fun hike! It definitely raised my heart rate, but was worth the beauty at the top. The spa was a perfect way to end the day after the hike. I added on a massage and it was amazing. The guide was sweet, and oh lunch was delicious.

    Great hike! The tour guide picked us on time at the hotel. From the beginning to the end of the hike was about 3 hrs included one stop at the temple. I wouldn't recommend this tour to children that is 10 yrs old and under. It was very hot and a lot of bugs/misquotes, so don't forget to bring misquotes sprays, sunblocks, a towel, and a least two bottles of water. Our tour guide didn't say much. Lunch was really good. We skipped the Ginseng part since we weren't into ginseng, which now I regretted that we passed on that part. We wanted to have more time at the massage place. I didn't know that the massage people dropping us off at the hotel otherwise I would have gone to the ginseng place. We paid extra hour for the massage and it was ok. And it was not cheap.

    We hiked in the rain. Longer hike than what we expected. Good experience though. We enjoyed the lunch ...

    We always schedule something active for our first day in a country it helps with jet lag and long-haul kinks. This was a great walk with a very pleasant and interesting guide - followed by one of the best lunches of our vacation.

    This was an excellent hike! We enjoyed the representative that guided us. The spa experience was wonderful. . . Especially enjoyed the exfoliation and soaking in the warm water. Great rejuvenation after the hike.

    Great experience! The guide Chance was awesome, the hike was manageable and is rewarded with a beautiful view from Mt. Bukhan. Highly recommend!

    Loved the hike to Mt Bukhan, terrific guide who was very knowledgeable and entertaining!
    We had a delicious lunch at the end of the hike - fabulous day!
    Was not as keen with the Korean spa as it was inside a building - thought mistakenly that it would outdoors.....spa was not really my cup of tea.....next time will try an all-day hike!

    The hike was really good, our guide, chance, was really chatty which made the whole thing more interesting. The top of the mountain has quite a view. The only think i would chance about this tour would be the spa. After the lunch we were taken into this underground foreigner only spa. Included on the tour was body scrub and cucumber facial and sauna, but they will reccommend other more expensive stuff to do it actually amounted to 250 dollars. So i took it. It was a just a massage and face pack. The massage was really painful, and the face pack i didnt enjoy as i just my eyelashes done so i was worried about them breaking it. I wish i didnt take that extra course. Also, they talk in japanese to me. Also, i was naked the entire time in the spa and the staff were just there sitting chatting one was even brushing her teeth. I was walking in between their chairs naked while they were chatting. That ws very awkward for me. I wish they would take the talking
    /meeting/gossiping outside. Also during massage, i was never able to relax as my masseur was talking with someone very loud the entire time. The staffs in the spa need to learn professionalism and customer service.
