Hailed as the capital's only natural reserve, Bukhansan National Park shelters a rich biodiversity tucked away amid three granite mountain peaks--Baegunbong, Mangyeongbong, and Insubong. Also known as the Triangle Mountain, the national park boasts more than 1,300 species of animal and plant life, as well as an abundance of cultural and historical sites. As you explore the valleys and ridges, you'll come across many Buddhist temples and hermitages scattered all over the gentle slopes. Each season brings something visually unique to the park, so bring your camera and hiking shoes to experience those moments. Always carry extra water with you, and check the weather conditions in order to dress yourself properly for exploration. Put Bukhansan National Park and other Seoul attractions into our Seoul trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

I had a great time here. Climbing the highest peak was a bit challenging but the view was totally worth it. Make sure to bring gloves with you - there are ropes holding which can be painful. more »
Beautiful park shockingly close to downtown Seoul. Hiking ranges from gentle to fairly extreme with ropes and cables provided to pull yourself up and make descent manageable. The views are surprisingly beautiful for a park so close to the city. We saw only 6 or so people on a 3 hr hike once we left the lower, less steep part of the trail. There are walls, temples and pavilions scattered throughout the park and the ones we visited were beautifully decorated and in good repair. Wear good hiking shoes and bring plenty of water, this is a "real" hike.
Koreans like to hike. They spend their weekend exploring different routes. Come prepared. As some of the routes can be very challenging and will take more than 6 hours to complete. Start your hike earlier and pick the route from the starting point.
