1. Bukhansan mountain walk
What is it? This walk offers a rare chance to see the mountain range in the centre of a capital city. Bukhansan is in the southern part of Seoul, while Dobongsan covers the north; and from anywhere in the city you can reach the mountains within 40 minutes at most.
Why go? Bukhansan mountain trails are probably the best choice if you’d like to start from anywhere in the city centre. Even after the first half an hour of trekking, you can get a sense of what makes the Korean mountains so appealing for both locals and tourists. You can choose various walking routes from 2-3 hour to 4-5 hour courses, depending on how fit you’d like to be.
