I went to Gyeryongsan at the beginning of July on a somewhat rainy day. It's been a mild summer, so the weather was great. Once we got up into the mountain it was very cool along the river. We took the 107 to the 711 outside the entrance of the park. It's the last stop on the bus and it's a ten minute walk past some restaurants to get to the park. It's a 2,000 entrance fee, they only accept cash. There's a visitor's center along the way, you can get a map there and fill up your water bottles. I would recommend bringing at least two liters if you're going on a long hike in the summer. I didn't see any place to refill along the way. My friend and I hiked up to Gwaneumbong past the Dhonghaksan temple and Eunseon Pokpo (waterfall). The temple was under construction and the waterfall was tall but small. Great view at the waterfall. Past the waterfall it was switchbacks on slippery rocks all the way up to the peak. Do not wear choco's like I did. I recommend hiking shoes and even trekking poles if you have them. They're not necessary but would have been nice to have. The view at the top was amazing. I would have gone on but was out of shape, so I had to turn back the way I came. I plan to go back in September and do the entire loop. There was no bathroom anywhere on the mountain and it can be crowded be warned. Also, there's a lot of restaurants by the river for when you finish your hike. My friend and I ate at a restaurant that had the tables in the river. It felt amazing to stick our feet in while we ate. And the food was good.
