    Great Days Hiking
    Got the 240 bus out to the start of the Eorimok trail which took us two and a half hours to climb up to Witseoreum where we switched to come down on the Yeongsil trail, which took one and three quarter hours down. Glad we did it that way around as the down would have been a harder ascent. Shame that we walked all the way through clouds ha ha

    Hiking three trails in Hallan San
    An enjoyable hike. I made a mistake by hiking up Eoseungsaengak Trail, it’s 1.5 hour, probably the easiest and you can see the jeju city, it’s 1300m, I did hear a deer around when I hiked down but I could not see it. The view is pretty good. I went down quickly after realising that I made a mistake and start hiking up eorimok trails. The 2.5 hour up is 3/5 in terms of difficulties. The starting is easy but there are some path that the stones are uneven, need to be careful on the steps. I then hiked down the Yeongsil trail in 1.5 hour. That is slightly easier than eorimok. Some parts that look scary due to the view of the bottom but the scenery is beautiful. You can see the 500 buddiest rock. I hiked on 27sept, the weather is fantastic, no rain at all, it’s also not hot, however, I don’t see many flowers nor maple leaves Since I got off the bus at eorimok entrance, I did not know where the bus stop in yeongsik trail. I took a very very long walk down. I don’t know if there’s a shorter way. The eorimok entrance is not too far from the bus stop. Note that there’s is no 740 bus anymore . You just have to wait for 240. I stayed in jeju city Highly

    Not easy
    indeed it not easy, it divided to 3 paths in different level, the highest the toughnesses! Prepare hiking stick, that I not, eventually I hardly walk for the next day. I even did it after round island cycling!

    a new challenge
    Following our arrival at the Yeongsil path, we parked at the lower end of the route and then hiked up for thirty minutes to reach the beginning point. Even though we were only a few days away from the height of the foliage, it was still quite fine in several areas. After that, we descended by way of the Eeorimok route. This section is more peaceful and monotonous, yet it presents a new challenge in the volcanic stone sections.

    Hallasan Mountain
    It was the best decision I made to visit Hallasan on December. The trail is easy and the snow spotted all the trail just cuase slippery but still negotiable so please prepare your hiking shoes. It was a good weather and I met amazing people all the hike. We rented a car during our stay in Jeju. And entrence for Hallasan is Free. You just need to pay 1000krw for parking. Definately will come back !

    A great if horrible hike!
    A great if horrible hike! :) We went up Gwaneumsa trail which is indeed challenging - esp. the last couple of kilometers that are very steep - but altogether in fact quite enjoyable! Facing a lot of rain reaching the top we then decided to go down the supposedly « easier » Seongpanak trail which right from the outset felt truly horrible! It is covered for kilometers on end with rocks (which under heavy rain end up being also rather treacherous) - only briefly interrupted with wooden planks that offer a welcome if very short lived relief. In hindsight we should have gone down the Gwaneumsa trail. But in the end absolutely great memories! Would I do it again? Certainly not under the rain!

    A wonderful gift of Mother Nature
    Visiting this mountain and its park easily helps you understand why Jeju Island is included among the "New 7 Wonders of Nature". It immerses you into the beauty of Nature and gives you that much needed respite from your busy daily schedule. There are many spots you can visit on this mountain. We joined a guided tour which took us to the famous "1100 Road" and wetland. We also saw the monument depicting the legendary white deer. Your tour guide should tell you the story behind it. The wooden trail that guides you through the wetland is amazing! It was, indeed, a very relaxing visit. Highly recommended!

It was very very good.
The hike is challenging and you definitely need some level of fitness and balance because there are many stones/rocks on the ground you need to walk/climb on and over.
It is a very well presented hike.
Took 4h35 to do and it was 19km for me.

We went to the Yeongsil trail and park at the lower end before hiking up for 30mins to the starting point. The foliage were still fine at some area though we missed the peak a few days only. Then we came down using Eeorimok trail. This part is quieter and boring but challenging at the volcanic stones areas. My sports shows were dead at the end and had to buy a new pair in Seoul thereafter! We spotted deers eating in this trail. It was 4-5 hours hike in total then took a bus down the hill back to Yeongsil parking lot. Just bring along your T-money card to commute everywhere in Korea and can be purchase from C U convenient stores.

Pretty cool to hike the highest point in Korea! I hiked up the Seongpanak path and down the Gwaneumsa path. It was nice to be able to see both sides. Definitely the highlight of my time in Jeju!
