SUPER WALKIE TALKIE! PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN ALL DAY EVENT

THIS HIKE IS SUITABLE FOR VERY EXPERIENCED HIKERS ONLY.  IT IS A DAY LONG HIKE AND INVOLVES LONG, STEEP CLIMBS AND DESCENTS OVER LOOSE, UNEVEN TERRAIN AND CLIMBING OVER ROCKS USING FIXED METAL RAILS. 

ROUTE GRADING 4 (GRADE 1 = EASY, GRADE 4 = VERY DIFFICULT

Rocky peaks and deep valleys give Gwanaksan a rugged feel as you climb to the peak at 629m.  At the mountain's summit are the Wongaksa Temple and Yeonjuam Hermitage and the view from here is spectacular.  We will follow a different route down and finish at Seoul National University.  This is a challenging climb with a difficult (optional) section at the peak but it is well worth the effort. 

Please bring PLENTY of water, snacks and sun cream!  Hiking boots are advisable.
