Hiking in Seoul, Korea visiting Mount Bukhansan National Park (북한산국립공원) Travel Video Transcript:
We're exploring a part of Seoul (서울) we've never been to before. We've never really been to the north of Seoul (서울) and we've never done a serious hike in Seoul so we're really excited to be going off to Bukhansan Mountain (북한산국립공원) today. Bukhansan (북한산). And we're going to reach it by metro right now. And our metro is here so let's run.
Alright, so we are transferring from line number two, the green line, to line number one, the blue line, and that is going to take us to our final stop. So let's do this.
Alright, so we have arrived at the station. This is Dobongsan (도봉산). And we're actually doing it the shortest loop we can find. I think it is supposed to take an hour and a half.
So what do we have to do before we can hike up the mountain? Um, we're going to get me some pancakes because I'm already grumpy and cold and dreading this so I need food to warm me up.
And what are those pancakes called? Hotteok (호떡). Hotteok (호떡). And they are filled with honey and cinnamon and they're going to be good.
We're just about to go up Bukhansan National Park (북한산국립공원) and what is fascinating about this park here is that it is seventy eight kilometers wide and there is a number of different hiking paths.
Actually if you look over here you can see lots to choose from. Different paths and it shows you the kilometers and the distance it should take in terms of hours. How much time it should take. Yeah.
And so yeah there is a lot to choose from. We're doing an easy route today. Yes, and what does Bukhansan (북한산) mean? It means the mountain north of the Han River.
Last time I swear. So we were thinking of doing this one. Jaunbong (자운봉). But it turns out it is intermediate advanced with expert portions. Originally we were going to do Uiam (우이암) anyways.
Update from the hike. So something we didn't necessarily anticipate is how many cool Buddhist temples we'd be passing by.
So we only have two hundred more meters to go but these are likely going to be the steepest. Let's get at it.
And we're also seeing a lot of mountain kitties nearby temples and also just on random sections of the trail.
So what do you think? We're almost there. Oh man, we've been crawling like on our hands and knees to get up here. Like that last stretch was really rough. Yeah. But the views. Spectacular.
So we've finished the hike. Now we're down at ground level and we're starving. So we're going for the quintessential Korean meal that you always have when you hike. Which is pajeon (파전) haemul pajeon (해물파전) the seafood Korean pancake. So we're just waiting for that to be prepared.
And for dessert we're going in for. We had to get a little more food for the road so we got one more Hotteok (호떡) and this one is a lot different from the one I had in the morning.
Thoughts on the hike? Thoughts on the hike I thought it was a great hike I can see why they would label it as a beginners hike in terms of the actual path. Yeah. But in terms of the hike would you say a return trip it is about a three hour journey? It took us three hours. It took us about three hours. You're looking at more of a full day outing. More videos from Korea soon. Every Monday. Bye.
This is part of our Travel in South Korea video series showcasing Korean food, Korean culture and Korean cuisine.

Hiking Bukhansan National Park 북한산국립공원
My best friend Josh and I hiked one of the most popular mountains and national parks in Korea. Bukhansan National Park attracts around 5 million visitors each year. But please be careful because the routes can be slippery and dangerous, however, the view is spectacular and worth it! If I remember correctly, the whole journey took us nearly 8 hours to complete so be prepared emotionally and physically to endure some pain. I will include a link to the official website. Also, if you have any questions regarding about this place or any place I have visited, leave me a comment below. Thanks guys!
