Owner description: One of the most popular pastimes in Seoul is hiking and this stunning national park just outside the city is a local favorite. Aside from a variety of hiking trails for every skill level, you’ll also see lots of flora and fauna, temples and ancient fortresses.

For a quick hike up a mountain right within Seoul, Bukhansan would be your option. Weekends tend to get a little packed as the locals also hike the trails to the peak, though the crowds are still manageable as there are many trails.

We hired a private tour guide to be able to drive us to Mt Bukhan and Bukhansan National park- this was really one of the highlights of our trip—we walked a shorter trail up to Harujae ridge that just took ~1.5 hours round trip—nice stone steps looked natural but made it easy to climb- great views. Teenage girls enjoyed it as just a short enough hike. Pretty steep so coming down would be difficult for people with knee problems. Very nice morning outing for the drive and hike and able to get back to Seoul city center in the early afternoon.

Trekking is super popular in Korea, really the national pass time. As such, there are trails for all levels of ability in this national park. Views are stunning. So many temples to visit and paths to get you all over the park. Unfortunately, the hardest part is finding information in English. Blogs help. Public transportation takes you almost anywhere around the perimeter of the park. Well worth the effort!

This was my very first solo hike up a mountain..took the Bugandae trail up to the peak...The hike up was challenging enough especially towards the top where i had to use steel cables to haul myself up...the trail was very scenic during autumn and i was amused to see local hikers much older than I zipping past me with ease while I was trudging slowly trying to catch my breath! The view at the top was breathtaking and there's a flat rock where everyone would sit to have their lunch and njoy the view of Seoul city. Took almost 3 hours to reach the peak from the main entrance with some photo stops along the way and another 3 hours down the same way. On the way down, i slipped a few times as I wasn't wearing proper hiking boots and the rocks were slippery. So anyone who wants to do this, please wear hiking boots for safety. Overall, this was a great experience and the highlight of my trip in Seoul!
