Bukhansan National Park - Sumeunbyeok Ridge Hike

  • Apr 19, 2014 · 8:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's spend the day hiking at Bukhansan National Park! We will take a bus to the trailhead and hike along Sumeunbyeok Ridge. The trail will lead us over numerous peaks before bringing us down to Bukhansanseong. The hike will have some challenging, steep sections and will involve a lot of rocky terrain, so footwear appropriate for hiking is a must. The hike will take about five or six hours, and we'll eat lunch somewhere along the trail. There will also be the opportunity to hike to the top of Baekundae for those who wish to. It should be a great hike!



Meeting Place:

Bulgwang Station (불광역)

Lines 3 & 6, Exit #7




Meeting Time:




City bus to/from the trailhead (around 1,200-2,000 won each way) -- Can use T-Money


What to bring:


• Clothing appropriate for the weather

• Appropriate footwear for hiking (hiking boots/sneakers)

• Packed lunch to eat while hiking

• Snacks

• Plenty of water (bring a lot, you will need it!)




8:45am - Meet at Bulgwang Station (불광역) Lines 3 & 6, Exit #7

Take a city bus to the trailhead (takes ~30 mins)

~Hike along the ridge~

4:30pm* - Finish our hike and take a bus back to Yeonsinnae Station (Lines 3 & 6)


(* Depending on how quickly we hike ^_^)


Hike details: 

The hike will take five or six hours round-trip (including time for lunch). The hike is around 10km and will take us over a variety of terrain. The trail will have a lot of rocky sections, some ropes and rails, and some staircases, too. This hike isn't suitable for those who are afraid of heights. Keep in mind that many of the trails at Bukhansan are challenging and rocky, including the one we will hike on during this meetup.

    Hello everyone,

    I cannot attend this meetup due to a sudden, serious problem with one of my eyes. The problem started right before going to bed last night and is still a problem now. I need to go to a hospital this morning. The co-organizer will take me to the hospital (because I don't speak Korean well enough), so the hike will be lead by Richie. He is an experienced hiker who knows Bukhansan very well, so I know you all will have a great hike. Sorry everyone, I hope you have a great hike!
