The Hallasan Trail Reservation System is effective until December 31, 2020. The hike to the peak of Hallasan Mountain was originally open to the public, however due to severe environmental damage, the trail reservation system was temporarily implemented to limit the number of visitors starting October 2019. The reservation system became official and was extended on February 1 in celebration of Hallasan Mountain’s 50th anniversary of its designation as a national park.

There are five hiking trails on Hallasan Mountain: Eorimok Trail, Yeongsil Trail, Seonpanak Trail, Gwaneumsa Trail, and Donnaeko Trail. A total of 1,500 visitors can hike to the peak using the Seongpanak Trail and Gwaneumsa Trail per day, each limited to 1,000 and 500 hikers respectively. Hikers can enter the trails starting from 06:00 and must begin their descent by 13:30. The remaining three trails do not require prior reservation to enter.

Reservations can be made on the official website one month prior to the desired date. In the case that spots do not fill up, visitors may enter without a prior reservation.
