What you'll do

We will challenge ourselves by hiking a rocky mountain, enjoy the fresh mountain air and panoramic view of Seoul. We will hike Dobongsan mountain in the morning. The mountain is known for its beautiful rock formations and is home to Buddhist temples. The mountain is also famous for its rigorous and challenging hiking trails. We will meet at Dobongsan Station and start our hiking from 'Dobong hiking support center' to conquer Sinseondae peak (726m). Along the way, we will pass by the first historic temple built in Silla dynasty. After hiking for a while (around an hour) we will arrive at the second historic temple-'Cheonchuksa'. As we approach the temple, standing Buddha statues will welcome us to the temple. This place has a beautiful backdrop of rocky formations. We may take a couple of photos while taking some rest. After this point, the trail is more challenging because of steeper rocks along the trail. However, the panoramic view and fresh air will keep us going toward the peak. The peak side is often breezy with cooler air. Once we arrive at the peak, we will have a beautiful view of Seoul and mountain peaks. We will take a break time at the peak and descend by taking another trail. Descending trail is easier and is greener with many trees along the way. We will pass 'Dobong hiking support center' by 1 p.m and finish our hiking.
