Where you'll be

Mt. Inwang offers hikers 360 view of Seoul & relatively easy night hike. It gives tangible history with its ancient beauty. The bar, a personal discovery from hiking, extends this traditional episode with its Korean liquors. And nothing better to soak up alcohol than savory Korean dishes after.

*on Mondays, we will hike a different mountain, Mt. Ahn. Equally beautiful peak view and it's got a wonderful natural trail.

Rated 4.96 out of 5 from 1,089 reviews.

Incredible experience! Sam was a gracious host who made the trip comfortable and exciting! The mountain was an amazing hike and provided incredible views of the city! The sunset was spectacular as well. I would highly recommend both Sam and this experience to anyone who is visiting Seoul, and looking for a local adventure. You will not be disappointed :)

Sam is a lovely person. We chatted about our mutual love of travel and food. Our group was fun, lively and has great energy. He gave great instructions on what we would need to bring and when/where we would meet. He helped make sure that I had the appropriate clothing and that I'd be comfortable on the hike. He was very quick to respond to any questions I had on the Airbnb message system. The experience was magical from the hike, views, photo opportunities, dinner and drinks. Conversation flowed easily. I highly recommend this experience to first time visitors to Seoul.

The hike was brilliant and only made better by our great host, Sam. The hike itself was paced well and we were able to take breaks going up/down to take in the incredible views. Seeing the sunset from the peak was breath-taking and a unique experience. The drink tasting and meal after was a great way to spend the evening and made travelling alone a lot more fun!

Amazing experience! I definitely recommend giving it a try. The hike itself was a little difficult, but definitely worth the views you will see. Food and drinks at the end were authentic and delicious. I am very satisfied and happy with the experience!
