Hallasan Mountain 한라산- Hallasan Mountain, is South Korea’s highest mountain reaching 1,950m and is also considered a representation of Jeju Island. Hallasan Mountain한라산 is also one of the new 7 Natural Wonders of the World. There are 5 trails but only 3 reach the summit – Seongpanak Trail 9.6km, Eorimok Trail 6.8km, Eoseungsaengak Trail 1.3km, Yeongsil Trail 5.8km and Gwaneumsa Trail 8.7km. We took the no.100 bus to the Jeju Bus Terminal and then took the bus no.780 to the entrance of the Seongpanak Trail. Entrance was free. The hike up Seongpanak Trail has 3 stages, Grade A (Difficult), Grade B (Normal) and Grade C (Easy). What’s great about this Trail, is the fact that all difficulty levels are available, if you are a rookie hiker, like us, at the start of the Grade B Trail, you have the opportunity to seek left to Hallasan’s Crater, with an observation point, which totals to a 13km hike. We do suggest that you go with proper hiking shoes, as the route has a lot of rocks that form the path, and the path runs through beautiful scenery.
