Climbing In Korea
Hello CIK members!
Let's hike at Daedunsan Provincial Park in fall! This mountain, located between the cities of Daejeon and Jeonju, is one of the most spectacular mountains in Korea. The scenery here is breathtaking.
This park is famous for its 50 meter suspension bridge over a deep ravine and its steep red staircase leading up the mountain. An incredible 360 degree view makes it all worth it! The hike up and down takes 5 fun hours. There are the great variety of things to see and the scenic views. The long, beautiful yet steep hike includes crossing two hair-raising suspension bridges over deep cliffs. The trail is rocky and has steep sections, so wear shoes appropriate for hiking. There is a cable car which goes halfway up the mountain for those who wish to reduce their hiking time.
The hike is only moderately difficult, with only a few steep and rocky areas. So, beginners are welcome to join us! Don't miss out; reserve your seat now! It should be a great autumn hike!
You have to sign up and pay to reserve your spot. We need your deposits to reserve the bus. First paid, first served.
Finally, please arrive early. 7:30am is the departure time so plan your travel time accordingly.
