  • Hallasan is a very beautiful and affordable to climb the volcano. Classic route up a steep trail to Songpanak, down the steep but very scenic trail Gvanymsa. Convenient back and forth to take a taxi (about 15000-18000 out of Jeju Island). Main points:-start early, recovery will take about 3.5 hours, and 12:30 trails on top of close-stock up on drink and food for the whole route-check the weather forecast and be aware that at the top of windy and cool-if you go down the Gvanymsa rather just a couple of days:) feet poboljat Good luck and have a wonderful experience!

  • Excellent hike, all day trip, apx 4hrs up 3 down. Leave early 6-7am, wear solid shoes or hiking boots, the lava rock coming down will tear your ankles apart if you don’t watch your step, plus you will feel the exhaustion kicking in. Take snacks and sambo’s for one lunch break and plenty of water. Zero visibility on our day so it will have to be done again.
  • Highest mountain in Korea, 1950m. Summer is better in my opinion when you can see the lake Baekrokdam. Several things to remember for hiking. 1. You need to get to a point called "Jindalebat Daepiso(진달래밭 대피소, Korean Rosebay Field Refugee Shelter) before 12:30. After that, you are not allowed to go further. 2. There are two points to go to the summit, Seongpanak and Gwaneumsa starting point. Yes, two path to the summit. Around the hallasan there are 4 routes but only 2 routes are available for the summit, the lake baekrokdam. Of course, the route to the summit from other route was available before. But after an accident, it was closed permanently. There was a news about the opening again but it was canceled... 3. From Seongpakak, about 4 ~ 5 hours going up and 3 ~ 4 hours to going down. Prepare enough water. 4. There are so many Korean climbers...(Korean people like hiking) usually. 5. Several toilets on the way.
