An hour-long hike to Ulsanbawi Rock gives you the opportunity to feel like you're standing on the edge of a knife. First you need to climb rather steep steel stairs, but after that, take your time and walk on the paved trail. On your way up you'll spot a Buddhist temple, an ideal resting place. Once you've reached the top, you'll see both sides of the steep ridge. Relax on the summit, and watch the mesmerizing landscape until you decide to go back.

  • Its worth the effort.. a long way up the hill but once there the views are amazing and also the path to the top is breathtaking. It is not as long as I thought it would be, I got to the top of the hill in less than 2 hours.
  • This is a pretty tough hike with a steep incline that is made up of rocks and stairs the entire way up. Combine that with the humidity and it makes for a rough one. The topography doesn't lend itself well to walking and the last stretch from the boulder to the top of the mountain gets even steeper since they literally built stairs to reach the summit! All the sights and views made it well worth the effort so great hike !!
