  • Information
    One of the trails on Hallasan Mountain, Yeongsil is known as the best autumn foliage course in Hallasan. The trail is about 3.7 kilometers long, taking 1 hour 40 minutes. It starts from Yeongsil Rest Area and follows a relatively gentle slope lined with beautiful trees and autumn foliage for about a kilometer. After that, an uphill path emerges along steep mountain ridges. The first attraction of Yeongsil is a group of volcanic rocks collectively called Yeongsilgiam. These oddly shaped rocks are situated to the right of a big valley at 1,400 meters to 1,600 meters above sea level, soaring upwards towards the sky. The crater wall of Hallasan Mountain is another attraction of Yeongsil Trail. Pass the Sajebi Hill to get a glass of mineral spring water, and you will reach Eorimok to take the path downwards.
