Amazing escape from the city. Temples, ancient gates and walls and the serenity of nature. Big enough for several days of hiking.

Just 25 min by subway from heart of Seoul. To take to the top of Baekundae it will take about 3,5 h (up only). After hiking there are some nice local restaurants near subway to enjoy Korean barbecue.

Me neither. I think at some parts it is dangerous for adults, too. But there are other nice tracks, which can be done by children :)
