Enjoying mountain hiking anytime and anywhere

Mountain hiking is a popular leisure activity in Korea. About 80% of Korea’s total land area is covered in mountains. It is easy to find a hiking trail in any region, and anyone can enjoy light hiking. To hike on famous hiking trails, one must prepare the necessary personal outdoor gear that suits the season and difficulty level.

The mountains of Korea put on different colors every season. In the spring and summer, nature offers flowers and trees dressed in green, yellow, and pink; in the fall, the mountains change their hues to crimson or yellow. In the winter, the mountains are covered with snow. Some of the most popular mountains are Bukhansan, Jirisan, Hallasan, and Seoraksan.
