Without doubt a trip here is unmissable if you like hiking/climbing. We had a complete day here and it is soooooo beautiful. There are multiple sections to the park and you could come here time and time again to complete a different trail. We climbed the highest peak and the view made the climb worth all of the effort!

I have been a Boy Scout leader in Seoul for the last nine years and have hiked Bukhansan dozens of time. This park is in fact my favorite hiking location and is one of the most hiked in Korea. The park is formed by two parallel mountain ridges with a steep valley between them. Hiking starts on paths at bottom... More

Located in the near approximately twenty minutes from Uijeongbu, Bukhansan offers caustic views amongst the wildernesses; a far cry from the bustle of the city. You are greeted by a traditional temple which we were fortunate to visit on a day when monks walk the grounds willing to give a history of the location, a blessing for good health, and... More

This mountain will always be special to me. This is where I've experience my first snowfall. Coming from a tropical country, I've always dreamed of experiencing snow. Went to hike solo Baegundae Peak in the later part of November 2016 and I was not expecting it. It was surreal feeling! haha. Hike is relatively fine for a hiker like me.... More

Lots of paths to take which could take you hours, days, and weeks. Make sure you have some good shoes or walking stick because there are lots of potential chances of slipping

I have hiked 3 different trails in this park area and each time have been inspired and amazed by the beautiful mountain views there. This is a great park to hike for people of any skill level.

Climbed Mt Baegundae the tallest mountain in the park in the afternoon in the snow on the day i arrived in Seoul. The trails were good and well marked but the steep slopes on the last 1km were tough in snowstorm and icy conditions. Ice Cleats (spikes) are needed for the climb - which can be purchased at one of... More

We hiked the summit of Mt. Baegundae: Very recommendable challenge! Cables and stairs help, ice and snow did not, but we made it :-)
