Scenic rocks and native trees shrouded in cloudy mist create a stunning contrast to the nearby megalopolis of Seoul. Silence and birdsong help accentuate the cool micro-climate of the region.
One of the premiere sites in the area is Bukhansanseong. This fortress is nearly 2000 years old and has been reconstructed several times to weather invasions of the Seoul area for millennia. Several hiking routes such as the Sinseondae and Uiam Courses wind through the forests surrounding Bukhansan and provide varying levels of fitness challenges.
Bukhansan is one of the closest parks and mountain to the pulsing heart of South Korea, Seoul. As one of the largest cities in the world, Seoul caters to every metropolitan taste and is easy to fly into from nearly anywhere in the world. Bukhansan is also the highest mountain in the Seoul metropolitan area, at 837 meters high. If you’re planning on hiking here don’t forget to hire a photographer for Bukhansan in Seoul!
