The trail is relatively easy and is one of the shorter trails that takes you up Hallasan. The views along the trail are amazing and very well maintained. There are plentiful rest stops along the trail with excellent views of the surroundings. There are 2 carparks here. Do wait a little or arrive early to gain access to the car park nearer to the trail. The outer carpark requires a 2 km walk. Parking is very limited and controlled vehicle entrance to the car park near to the trail. Cater around 4 to 5 hours for a return trip from the nearer car park. Definitely worth a visit.

This was one of the shorter trails (5.8 km) of Hallasan which brings you to Witae Oreum Shelter. But after the first section which is through a forested area, the trail gets rather steep and rocky. It can be challenging for those who are not used to such steep ascent. With frequent stops along the way, it took us almost 3 hours to reach the flat area which leads to Witae Oreum Shelter. From there, you get an excellent view of the summit of Hallasan. Scenery along the trail was amazing and highly recommended.

The descent is along the same path and less exhausting. Wear good hiking shoes and bring ample food and water along as there is no food at the top. Best to start the hike early say 8 am as the carpark (next to the trail entrance) fills up quickly.

Good, peaceful trail, starts slowly, then is quite steep for a while, then flattens out, nice views of a dome on its side. The path is well maintained, steps or planks lead almost all the way to the top. How to get there? By a taxi from Jungmun Beach (approx. 30,0000 Won). There also is a public bus. We went up on an overcast day, it was quite windy and chilly on top.

We went in winter with 2 young kids (6 & 8) and it was easy going but cold. Lots of locals ply this route and it’s 5km to the witsoreoum rest area where you can transfer to other trails or have a nice pit stop. Trekking poles and good shoes would be a good idea. The scenery is marvelous with very nice panaromic vistas all round

we brought our 2 kids up : 4 years and 10 years old. Our 10 year old was a champ and walked all the way up to the Witsaeoreum shelter - but it was very tiring for him on the way down.

Our 4 year old needed a lot of carrying up & down the track, which strengthened and tire-d out our quads/calves!

i would do this trail again but will stop at the top of the stairs overlooking the mountains' scenic views. Going through the plains was just alright and i felt there was no 'reward' to go further.

The spring water was amazing - cold and fresh!

would love to try this trail again in autumn!

For a beginner hiker like me, this trail is acceptable, mostly stairs without much of stone paths. The view of the mountain is captivating. Hiking sticks would provide some help during the hike. I try to hike down through Donnaeko trail, it has more stone path comparing Yeongsil trail. In the end I turn back to Yeongsil trail.

You can get to the beginning of the trail by bus 240 from Jeju or Jungmun (bus schedule is attached). From the Yengosil Ticket Office stop it takes about 40 minutes to walk to the trailhead.
Entrance for pedestrians is free (parking is paid).
To climb in winter you need crampons; you can buy them in the shop at the beginning of the trek.
The whole journey from the bus stop to the Witse Oreum shelter and back the same way took me 5.5 hours (including rest and snack at the top). You need to take food and water with you; there is nowhere to buy it at the top. There is a toilet in the shelter.
Allowable start times for ascent and descent for different trails and seasons are shown in the attached table.
