An UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site, the Hallasan National Park is loaded with walking trails and is home to South Korea’s highest mountain named the Shield Volcano Hallasan. You’ll find about 1800 different kinds of plants and a number of alpine animals along the way up. The park is a unique place for nature lovers. Settled right in the heart of Jeju island, this park with high density woods and blooming hillsides is concidered as a treat to be at. Transportation: start with chosing a right trail for you. There many different ways up to the mountain, but only one of them will bring you to the summit. To get to the entrance you’d probably need to take one of the public busses or rent a car. Both options are convenient. Equipment: You’d definitely need to be prepared for a long and tiring walk. All the trails are devided into segments, based on their difficulty. Some of the parts of the trail would be paved, some wouldn’t be equipped at all. You’d be grateful for those parts where you’d be able to walk and step on the wooden bridges and paths. But except those short and the easiest parts of the way, you’d need to climb on the steep and narrow rocks, hop along cobblestones and boulders. Timing: don’t rush, remember when you’re on the top, that was only a half of your journey. There is the same long way down the mountain when you’re on the summit. Tips: be prepared for considerable change of the temperature and other weather conditions. We started in a pleasant sunny day and finished when it was drizzling and the fog was literally embracing us. Add up some wind and decreased temperature and you’re almost in our shoes over there. You’d definetely need to wear tracking boots or something alike, protecting and supporting your feet well. Otherwise you’ll risk hurting your ankles and knees. (as us, cause we were not prepared)You’d also want to change your clothes after 6-7 hours tracking up and down this mountain.
Отличный парк, очень большой, вход бесплатный. Подьем и спуск на вулкан занимает около 7-8 часов, обязательна треккинговая обувь, иначе ноги к клнцу путешествия стопчутся по колено. Пейзажи головокружительные. Озеро на вершине Халласана в сентябре потрясающее (но до этого неделю шли дожди). Единственный минус - лестница на вулкан. От такого подьема сильно болят ноги, а спуск колени убивает совсем.
Hannah Mountain, World Heritage, free of charge. The inquiry office provides a map in Chinese, and a good Chinese elder sister writes the bus information for each section of the road to help her cry on the map. No cable car, it takes 8 hours to climb the top! We can only choose a 4-hour route for 5 hours, climbing from Yulimu (980 meters) to Weishiyue (1700 meters), and then going down the Lingchao route. The scenery is diverse and the plants are diverse. It's amazing and shocking. Be sure to wear thick soles and coats for climbing. There is a place to catch spring water on the way up the mountain. Weishiyue has instant noodles and mineral water at the same price as Yamashita. The RMB is less than 10 yuan, but the garbage has to be carried by itself. Lingwu route terminal is 2.5 kilometers away from the bus station, and it is all very steep downhill Panshan, poor physical strength is best to take a taxi to the station. 740 intervals in more than an hour, it is best to ask the timetable in advance, the last class is currently 17:36.
Korean people like mountain climbing very much. Children as young as 3 or 4 years old and old people with grey hair are all equipped to climb mountains. There are many ways to climb Mount Hannah. We climb the best way. Take 740 Road to the hillside, then walk up from the hillside to have a rest station, which is also the real beginning of climbing. Many black crows can be seen in the rest station. The first time I saw them, I thought they were cute, and they were not afraid of people at all. They would not fly away to their side. The first half of the uphill route is slightly dull. The plants are very flourishing. The sunshine can only be felt through the gap between the leaves in the top layer of the head. So the road is a bit wet. Because of the autumn, there are many maple leaves under the feet, which are very feel. Although this road is a little tired, you will unconsciously strive to climb up as you watch others overtake you little by little. By the way, we should remind you that unlike the tourist attractions in China, there are many places for selling food. So it's better to prepare food and drink for yourself. Don't like us. When you climb down the mountain, your legs are soft with hunger. _________________ In the past, the road to the top of the mountain was full of volcanic rocks. There were many holes on the top. There were also silver firs on both sides. It was a bit of a relic and independent place. Behind it is the vast sea, with mountains and seas, I just want to build a wooden house to live there and never come out of the world. Because of the relationship between time and not moving forward, I feel very sorry, so remind the children to go, if they want to complete the climb in a day, it's better to go earlier, because there are only 740 buses downhill, the latest seems to be around 5 o'clock, so the time of climbing and downhill must be mastered well.
We went there in February. There was snow at the foot of the mountain. We could see how thick the snow was on the mountain. Choose the Chengbanyue route, 9.6 km one way, we arrive at the starting point of the route at about 8:30. According to the internet, there are many ice claws, climbing rods, climbing shoes and gloves. We also wear knee pads in advance, and after finishing equipment and taking photos, we begin to climb at about 8:50. I have to say that Koreans are walking at a very fast pace. I feel that I can't walk with these equipments. I can only walk at my own speed. Fortunately, they will take a break after a short walk, and we have been walking unnoticed at the beginning, so the time to arrive at the first rest point is similar. The first section is 4.1 km. It took more than an hour because of its gentleness. The next 3.2 km immediately showed the colours, all slopes. It took about an hour and a half to reach the second rest point at 11:30. This is the place where you are required to arrive before 12 o'clock. After a short rest, the more terrible thing is the third paragraph. Although only 2.3 km is left, I feel that I have been walking for a long time, but I only walked several hundred meters. At the end of the 500 meters, I went crazy. Without the barrier of trees, the wind suddenly became so big that I could blow people down and even stop and wait on the side railings. Behind it is even more absolute, even the railings are gone, beside it is the cliff, but the wind direction is crosswind, even if it falls down, it is also inside. People who have returned to the opposite side or who have the same climbing behind have the courage to go down. Because of poor visibility, people will disappear in a twinkling of an eye, accompanied by only the manic wind and the unknown road ahead, such embarrassment and inner struggle can only be seen in person. Only in the field can we experience this unforgettable experience for a lifetime. Such weather conditions can not see anything when we reach the top of the mountain. We should return with a little bit left. It's still important to have our own lives. The return journey is no longer repeated, and the wind will be much less if it goes down a little. After replenishing food at the second rest station, it continues down the mountain and finally returns to its starting point at 4:30. Although I didn't see any special scenery, the experience is enough to recall
a must visit place if you are in Jeju,all the trails are good and the scenic beauty is great
Tickets are free. I started from Chengbanyue. I climbed for four hours, rested for one hour after climbing, and went down for another four hours. Notes: Take two breaks along the way, not more than 10 minutes, afraid of delay, a total of nine hours. Attentions, we must take lunch, eat at rest after climbing, otherwise we will not have physical strength to go downhill; we must bring our own garbage bags, there are no garbage cans on the mountain, along the way we see several mineral water bottles, I hope not lost by our people; at least two bottles of water, one bottle up the mountain, one bottle down the mountain, along the way there is a local water supply, but also the mountain water; take windbreak, the mountain top wind is very strong, especially. After climbing the mountain, the body is sweaty, easy to blow a cold; high multiple sunscreen; climbing early and not late, preferably before 9 o'clock, Chengbanyue route at the latest not later than 9:30;... That's all. I hope it's helpful to my friends. Look at the pictures.
We hiked in the winter! It was fairly cold, but the trail was not as difficult as we imagined. There were wooden steps and platforms along the way, handropes to guide you and wide paths that won't obstruct oncoming traffic if you need a rest. The view was awesome, and the flora and fauna were interesting to admire. So don't forget to take a breather to look around!
At the entrance of Hannah Mountain Hospital, sit 740, you can reach Yuli Mushan Mountain Pass. The earliest bus is 6:30, the next one is 8 o'clock, and the next one is an hour. The last time to climb a mountain in winter is 10 a.m. If you want to catch the bus on your way back, you should catch the bus at 8:00 a.m. In winter, climbing a mountain must take ice claws, otherwise it is easy to slip.
