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.

  • Best destination in Seoul ever!! There are many trails that you can take here and most of the trails lead you to amazing destinations. The effort to reach those destinations is high but the panoramic views are well worth every steps you took. We took the hard trail to go to Baekundae peak and it was tough. However, the experience was something that we will never forget!
  • Fabulous! Wonderful and demanding hiking. Lovely greenery and views. Good signage, but be prepared for rocky trails. Many visitors used walking sticks to steady themselves over the many uneven sections. The park information office and a trail start in Jeongneung is a single bus ride from Hongdae to the park office, so use public transport. The helpful park office provide free basic paper maps that show the ease/difficulty of each trail section - very useful.
