South Korea is the best place to go hiking, did you know that? South Korea is known for its modernity, its palaces, its shopping places or its different events. However, according to me, it should be known for its amazing mountains, landscapes and hiking trails. In Seoul, there are 7 mountains where you can go hiking and the most famous being one of the highest and most breathtaking ones is called Bukhansan.
So now, let me show you why hiking is way better than going shopping! Bukhansan is called the “lungs of Seoul” for the role it plays in helping clear out the city’s CO2. With its 836 meters it offers an amazing view for the braves who reach the top!
But let me tell you, it is not that easy to reach, it takes 3 hours to reach the top and then 3 hours to go down so let me tell you that it is a long journey but it it is worth it! Even if it is long and exhausting it is perfectly doable! If you go there you will even see children and elderlies hiking (faster than you) and reach the top way quicker than you could have expected !
Actually Korean people love hiking as it is good for the health both for the body and the mind!
If you experience such an amazing hiking and enjoy such a breathtaking view take the Wooe-Sinseul Lrt until Bukhansan-Ui and starts climbing up!
- Take some water and snacks with you, there is a restaurant halfway but because of Corona Virus it is closed …
- When the restaurant will re-open if you want to buy something take some cash with you !
- If you are not used to hiking, you can still do it but choose a day when it is not too hot !
- And don’t forget that hiking alone is good but going with friends is funnier and safer !
