In seoul, coolest hike you can do is night hike in Ansan~!~

We walk through the Ewha University where we can find big tree to hug , we can find best view point to be surrounded with the combinations of classical old buildings with modern architectures
We pass through the univ from the main gate to rear gate to close to mountain.
We will walk quiet road to the temple which has old Hanok neighborhoods where monks live in.
Then, the giant temple with 500 year old trees, ponds, springs where we can get spring water, and hear the sounds of monk chanting or the bells making sounds by the wind.
We walk through the temple to the hiking trails which is mostly soft soils and we walk through the forest that we can be surrounded by trees and can try to walk on bare feet. There are outdoor gyms,we can try stretching and hanging on the bars.
After walking mindfully through the forest, we can sit for short to enjoy the silence and the shapes of trees peacefully! We sometimes try to have a stretching and breathing sesssion.
We sometimes try no-talk meditation walking time!
Then, we find a path to lead us to the peak as we can command great view of cities.
The trails are mostly soil and steps and need to hike up vigorously enough us to warm and sweat.
Finally , on top , there is a smoke signal chimney and has a view to Namsan,
Seoul Fortress, Seoul station, Han river , Bukhansan national park.
On the top, some parts are steep rocks that we can enjoy some walking on the rocks with the help of ropes and poles. It's always with fresh air blowing on the top to cool off the body and makes us to feel some achievement!
We are heading down to Yonsei Univ and finish at Sinchon subway station.line2 most of time. however, sometimes to Ewha Univ. or Seodaemun station(line5) close by Ehwa.
