Climbing In Korea
Let's hike at Songnisan National Park! We will hike up to Daeyasan which is a part of Songnisan National Park. We will first do a round trip hike starting and ending at a famous Yongchu waterfall, passing the most amazing scenery along the Yongchu valley. This is the most spectacular course at Daeyasan and the scenery here is really breathtaking, especially at this time of year. Also, the view from the top of Daeyasan is so marvelous that you can completely forget the hard walk up to the summit.
Daeya Mountain holds naturally blessed land in the hill of Sobaek mountain range and Ambong. This land, which displays a variety of strangely shaped rocks, is surrounded by grass to provide a majestic view. It is commonly compared to a mountain which combines Bukhansan and Dobongsan, and clear water flows down the valley throughout the four seasons. There are numerous areas of astonishing beauty around Daeyasan, but the two-tiered Yongchu Waterfalls are considered the best of the best.
We are estimating the hike to be about 10km and should take around 6 hours to complete. The course is moderately easy, so beginners are welcome to join us! We hope that many people will join us and take advantage of this opportunity to see a very special part of Korea. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to spend a fantastic day with friends both new and old as you trek through the wonderful Daeyasan and Yongchu Valley and take in the breathtaking scenery. The scenery in this area is very beautiful, so please come along for a great relaxing day. You don’t want to miss out on this trip!
