Seoul Hiking Group! Open Horizons to Korea~!

Far from the domineering skyscrapers of South Korea’s capital, along the southern coast, is a small island called Saryangdo. Mountain hikes in the city can get crowded with people, and there’s nothing worse than being smothered by other bodies when trying to scale a peak.









97,000won includes all above

Trip leader is Mike still

Hi all~!

The 2nd weekend of May,SHG will go on a trip to the beautiful island of Saryangdo, in Hanryeohaesang National Park ~!

Hiking outdoors has plenty of perks: nice views, fresh air, and the sounds and smells of nature.

"Being in nature is ingrained in o

ur DNA, and we sometimes forget that."

On the way back, we will visit myterious Maisan when cherry blossoms full.

Come join the SHG as we go to explore the beautiful island of Saryangdo~!


5AM Watch the sun rise at Goseong Dino foot-print seacoast park, chill on the seacoast, walk along to see the foot prints but depending on the tides it may not be visible.

7AM departs for ferry terminal,10 min by bus. (DON'T MISS FERRY!!!)

840AM ferry to Saryangdo

dinner party


730~830AM Breakfast

10AM ferry (DON'T MISS FERRY, be there 930AM!)

11AM departs for Maisan,

4PM Departs for Seoul



Friday Night Departure, April, 17th


~11 PM Pick up from diverse places

We will take the midnight bus down to the ferry down south in Tongyeong, Gyeongsang Namdo! Doing so will make this a memorable Friday night because you will finish work, meet some friends for this trip, have some dinner, and grab beer. We can shut our eyes on the bus and wake up to a picturesque ocean and fresh seaside aroma, it will feel like it’s a dream or surreal!

And we will walk the seacoast to find mysterious dinosaur foot print.

If tide is too high to see, then we will try when we depart from island, and then drop by again


Saturday Morning/Afternoon/Evening


~7:30 AM Ferry ride across Hanryeohaesang National Park to Sayrangdo

As the sun is coming up, we can see more of the vivid port and ocean, then we will take the ferry for 40 minutes to Saryangdo Island. When the ferry passes so many islands in Dadohae Marine National Park, you can't stop taking pictures of so many islands on the ocean ~! This entire process of getting to the island is like a real journey to escape from the “same same”, hustle and bustle of the city!

~ 9 AM

So, we will arrive at the island, check into our pension around 9AM with a warm welcoming from local dogs and local people. You can enjoy hiking the mountain or walking around the pension area, playing some soccer, walking to the beach or you can just get some more sleep as we will chill and relax all day on the island! And the best part of Saryangdo, very well reserved nature, we can see so many beautiful islands, and the hike is stunning with its diverse trails and it's enough to make serious hikers happy. Even some parts of the trails are adventurous, there are almost vertical ladders that look impossible to walk down, but some ajumma- old lady will walk down as if it is very natural and you yourself will follow them.

HIKING INFO- the hike is approx a 6 hour hike with spectacular views. It is a 360 view after a steepish 40 min hike up to the ridge. After that first short climb, it's rocky ridge and many small peaks. If you have never hiked in Korea before, you may find it slightly challenging. But it's a hike that anyone can do. Also, be prepared to have to use your hands to get yourself up and down some awkward rocks along the ridge. There are detours for people not feeling like scaling the jagged ridge rocks, so don't worry!!

*****Also, if people are interested in fishing, then we can just go to fisher shop to rent fishing poles and try to catch for our dinner to BBQ!

And there will be SHG trademark dinner party, making cheeseburgers for dinner! Definitely we will make abonfire to enjoy the warm fire and have fun!


Sunday Morning


~ 8:30 AM Ferry ride back to Tongyeong ferry terminal

The next day, some of us will hike up to see the sunrise, and most of us will enjoy the scenery as we make some good homey breakfast; bacon, potato, eggs, and bananas!

After we enjoy breakfast we will head to the mainland around 8:30 AM and continue our adventure before our departure for Seoul.

~~ From the Ferry terminal we will head to a must-see Dinosaur Park in Goseong. The park has the largest dinosaur foot print area, the foot prints are so clear that it makes people feel like the dinosaur just walked there. Also, you can see the stunning layers of layers of strata on the cliff holding hundreds of millions of years of geological history walking the path along the ocean!

~10:30 AM departure from the Dino Park and on to Jeonju to Maisan. Approx a two hour drive

~12:30 ish

We will stop in Jeonju to see the mysterious Maisan Peaks. The mountain itself is unique and worth exploring. We will hike for about 2 hours around the park and explore its many attractions. The mountain’s name translates to “Horse Ear Mountain” because of its two pillars of sedimentary rock that were thrust up 600 meters into the sky from an ancient lake bed. The sight is reminiscent of animal ears, hence the name. Today it is a must see in Jeonju. It is also home to Tapas Temple, famous for its rock pagodas. One man spent decades building over 100 stone towers for his own self cultivation. The temple is also home to mysterious ice formations “ice spikes” in winter, so hopefully we can catch a glimpse.

~ 3 PM We will head back to Seoul after lunch somewhere, arrival would be 8 PM.

So, let's get some energy from the island in the south and our own spring started! Spread the word! Bring friends~!
