What you'll do

We will meet at subway station first and then have time to introduce ourselves to each other.
And then leaving for Gwanaksan Mountain(629 meters above sea level).
During the climb, you will meet a small quiet temple and animal-like rocks.
At the Gwanaksan observatory, you will meet the most beautiful view in Seoul.
Walking, breathing, healing, enjoy the silence and embrace nature in your heart.

We have two sessions.

The morning session will depart for Nakseongdae trail of Mt. Gwanak at 10:00 am. from Nakseongdae station.
We will climb mountains, have a vegetarian meal at a temple in the mountains, and experience Buddhist culture.

The evening session will depart for sadang trail of Mt. Gwanak at 08:00 pm. from Sadang station.
We will climb mountains, enjoy the night view of Seoul at the observatory and eat some food at a restaurant under the mountain.

Both sessions have completely defferent trail , defferent view.
If you have enough time in Korea, I suggest you try both trails.
You won't regret it!!

Some parts are steep, some are slippery rocks, some are stairs.
Mountain hiking may be a little hard, but it will be a good exercise and show you a nice view in seoul.
We will be friends beyond age, race and gender while climbing mountain.
Why don't you enjoy the morning and night view of seoul with new good frie

Min Young is a very friendly host and he is well prepared for the night hike. I would not be able to do the night hike on my own, it felt like an adventure! The night view was the most stunning view I've seen, after going to Namsan, Lotte tower, i liked this the best. Min Young brought us to pizza and beer after the tour. Overall it was an awesome evening.

This experience was totally worth the money! It was an incredible evening and we actually climbed more than I expected. When I booked this experience I was expecting just walking up the mountain on trails but we really climbed on quite steep stone walls, so be sure not to be afraid of heights. Also, the host was so nice and friendly to us and even treated us with warm food after the hike. I highly recommend this experience if you like hiking and as long as you‘re not afraid of climbing.

We had an incredible experience with Min and the others in our group. We definitely would not have been able to navigate this extraordinary experience on our own and Min was the perfect guide. As others have said, we are pretty in-shape and have hiking experience and did find portions of the hike challenging, although it never was too difficult and Min was very encouraging and helpful. Would definitely recommend to other travelers especially those seeking the best view in Seoul and a most friendly and gracious guide.

너무 재미있는 체험이었습니다. 등산 자체도 재미있었지만 등산 후에 산 위에서 보는 서울 야경이 너무 아름다웠습니다. 그리고 호스트분이 치킨과 약간의 술도 준비해주셔서 감사했습니다. 생각보다 등산이 아주 쉬운 곳은 아니었지만 재미있게 등산할 수 있었습니다. 강력 추천합니다! 감사합니다.

Great tour with an extraordinary view over Seoul in the end-destination! The participants should have comfortable shoes, and be ready for an exhausting walk up the hill, at some points even climbing up rocks, which was for me quite scary.
