Jeju is famous and ideal for walking, trekking and experiencing the nature. We visited the National Park as well as Mt. Hallasan during our trip to Jeju-do. It is a beautiful park with average to good hiking trails. For those who like to hike, this place is perfect! Make sure you have a proper map of the trails. So all... More

It has always been something i try to do everytime i go for a holiday, is to go trekking in the mountains or forest. I went in late December and took a cab up to the start of yeongsil trail, and went down Eorimok trail. It was near a six hours journey, with a 20 mins lunch break. As i... More

My husband and I consider ourselves pretty fit people, we regularly run and ski seasonally but we were impressed at the older Korean folks who visited the same track we did! We visited the Eorimok Trail which was advertised as a 3 hour walk one way. This time estimate is definitely accurate especially if it's consistent walking (which we did... More

It was winter when we came so most of the trees at the entrance were naked. But people were doing their warm ups for the climb to the crater with the lake. It's the highest peak in Korea so it takes about 4 hours to get to the top. It was advised to bring a packed lunch. I recommend climbing... More

Hallasan is the tallest mountain in South Korea. Your trip to Jeju island is not complete without climbing this mountain. There are several trails that have different difficulty.

The finale of my solo travel in South Korea. I arrived in Jeju in a gloomy weather 2 days before the climb. Thankful that the weather was fine during my climb via Seongpanak Trail. No admission fee only parking fee is required and an optional climb certificate for 1000 won after the climb. Started my trek at 7:30AM and reach... More

yes we took that long but it was definitely a highlight of our trip... start early, 630 to 7am would be good... as it was nov, we ended trekking the last part in the dark... a torchlight would be a good idea... there's a shelter 3/4 up that sells water and instant noodles...still some snacks as you trek might be...

This is purely an activity you should do if you actually enjoy adventures! The guides say to get to the peak it will take 4.5 hours, 8-9.5km depending on which trail you take. We took the popular one, seongpanak because there is a direct bus route from the Jeju intercity terminal (number 781). Here's my itinerary for the day: 08.45:... More

We self drive to the base during winter and it was a peaceful and safe drive. Chose the shorter and easer track since we are with a 7 yr old. Roads are silvery so ensure you have proper hiking gears and boots. There's a small cafe at the base but not much food option.
