Top 12 Scenic Hiking Spots & Walking Trails in Korea

Hiking is one of the most popular activities in Korea. On weekends (& even on weekdays), you can spot many brightly-clothed Korean hikers at the popular national parks, mountains and various walking trails.

Unique Holiday Experience - One can truly experience Korea's four seasons hiking at its mountains and fully immerse in its nature beauty. You can choose to have an easy leisure walk around the grounds or climb up to the summits with mesmerising views. There are signs (in English too) along the trails.

Accessibility - Many of the hiking spots in Seoul are just a bus ride or subway station away from the city center and can be completed in just half a day.

Gourmet Surprises - There are generally many hiking shops and restaurants leading to the National Parks or mountain entrances. You will be surprised that one of your best (& affordable) meals in Korea might be found here!

A 'must-do' experience for your holiday in Korea!
