Hallasan National Park

Hallasan National Park Review

A long extinct volcano, Hallasan towers 6,397ft (1,950m) over the island. At its base are forests, fertile fields, tangerine groves, and quaint villages. The hike to the top is challenging but views of the crater lake on a clear day are spectacular. The five most popular hiking trails varying in length and difficulty. The Gwaneumsa course goes all the way to the crater and takes 10 hours. The easiest course, the one-hour Eoseungsaekngak, is a staircase leading to the top of a small oreum (parasitic volcano). Trails open and close at varying times depending on the weather; check local listings for updates. Beware of the strong winds and sudden change in temperature as altitude increases. Hallasan has camping sites, parking, a visitors center, and bathrooms
