This review will be written from the point of view of a middle aged woman of average fitness, not someone for whom a 20 km trek is a walk in the park. Mount Hallasan is the highest peak in South Korea and if you are...More

Wondered how we would with a Korean map, but no need to worry. The path is crystal clear, bounded by rope all the way, and very clearly signed. Much of the path is either wooden planked or hessian carpeted (I jest not !). Starting at...More

Went in the autumn and was absolutely worth it. I took Gwaneumsa trail up (a bit boring) and Seongpanak trail down (spectacular). Leave early - I went at 6am as summit closes around 11 - 12 depending on the season.

The view is breathtaking. I wish we could spend more time there but it gets dark so you might want to head down before the sunset.
