What you'll do

We will challenge ourselves by hiking a rocky mountain, enjoy the fresh mountain air and panoramic view of Seoul.

We will hike Dobongsan mountain in the morning. The mountain is known for its beautiful rock formations and is home to Buddhist temples. The mountain is also famous for its rigorous and challenging hiking trails.
We will meet at Dobongsan Station and start our hiking from 'Dobong hiking support center' to conquer Sinseondae peak (726m). Along the way, we will pass by the first historic temple built in Silla dynasty. After hiking for a while (around an hour) we will arrive at the second historic temple-'Cheonchuksa'. As we approach the temple, standing Buddha statues will welcome us to the temple. This place has a beautiful backdrop of rocky formations. We may take a couple of photos while taking some rest.
After this point, the trail is more challenging because of steeper rocks along the trail. However, the panoramic view and fresh air will keep us going toward the peak. The peak side is often breezy with cooler air. Once we arrive at the peak, we will have a beautiful view of Seoul and mountain peaks. We will take a break time at the peak and descend by taking another trail. Descending trail is easier and is greener with many trees along the way. We will pass 'Dobong hiking support center' by 1 p.m and finish our hiking.
Other things to note
This hiking experience on the rocky mountain of Seoul is a chance to challenge yourself and to enjoy nature therapy in the mountain. An appropriate hiking outfit is recommended to enjoy the hiking to the fullest.

Hello adventure lovers!
My name is Zohid.
I am a passionate traveler, mountain lover and an airline marketer. I have been living in Seoul for over 7 years now. I travel frequently because I love traveling, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. Also, I enjoy early morning hiking and spend most of my weekends hiking through challenging mountains in Seoul. I have been hiking since I moved to Seoul, so I know well about most of the hiking trails of Seoul.

An amazing experience! Zohid is a great conversation and hiking partner - exactly who you’d want to take a long and sometimes strenuous hiking trip with. The views are incredible and Zohid is great to talk to as you go. He even helped me practice my Korean when I wanted to, though his English is obviously fantastic. Great time overall!

Great experience with Zohid, he made our group feel like we could reach the summit without issue, taking the expert Route was difficult and challenging for us non experts but so worth it once we reached the summit with a spectacular panoramic view that I will never forget!!

It was a great hike and I had a great time. It’s amazing that you can go to the mountains via metro. The teams are very well maintained. Zohid was very helpful and friendly.

Such an amazing day! A real highlight of my time in Seoul. Zohid was an amazing host with so much knowledge to share. We chatted about so many things and learned a lot about his life. Due to typhoon Ling Ling we needed to change hiking location on the spot (Bukhansan National Park was closed without notice when we arrived) and Zohid was able to work out an alternative, Suraksan, which was an incredible hike. It was challenging but we made it! The makgeolli and kimchi at the end was the perfect finish to the day. A great memory from our time in Seoul!

So happy we made it to the top!Definitely not a hike for beginners. Haha but Zohid knew what he was doing and was patient and went at our pace. He would notice when we were out of breath and gave is plenty of breaks in between. Thanks for the guidance and patience, Zohid!
