Hailed as the capital's only natural reserve, Bukhansan National Park shelters a rich biodiversity tucked away amid three granite mountain peaks--Baegunbong, Mangyeongbong, and Insubong. Also known as the Triangle Mountain, the national park boasts more than 1,300 species of animal and plant life, as well as an abundance of cultural and historical sites. As you explore the valleys and ridges, you'll come across many Buddhist temples and hermitages scattered all over the gentle slopes. Each season brings something visually unique to the park, so bring your camera and hiking shoes to experience those moments. Always carry extra water with you, and check the weather conditions in order to dress yourself properly for exploration.

  • Good place to clear the mind. I took the hard route up which was the fastest. Lots of climbing so a good hiking pole is needed if you wanna save your knees going up and especially on the way down...

  • My partner and I did the hike to the peak and back down again via the same route. I recommend using the Koreatodo website, as we found this super useful. We did the moderate rated route to Baegundae.....  more

  • Best destination in Seoul ever!! There are many trails that you can take here and most of the trails lead you to amazing destinations. The effort to reach those destinations is high but the panoramic views are well worth every steps you took. We took the hard trail to go to Baekundae peak and it was tough. However, the experience was something that we will never forget!
  • The best views of Seoul you can get. The foliage was gorgeous during autumn. The walkways are well kept and you can get an English map from the visitors centre. There are intermittent first aid kits on the trail but minimal access to water.
