Conquering Suraksan

Have you ever hiked a mountain here in South Korea before? Well if you haven’t, I highly recommend you to get your lazy ass up and go hike one! It’s a really thrilling experience to sit on the edge of the cliffs for a cool photo, or to jump over ledges to reach places people don’t go to. Do I even have to talk about the scenery? Simply breathtaking ๐Ÿ™‚

I just recently hiked Suraksan with my friends, Rory, Marcus, and Monica. Suraksan is a 638 meter high mountain located on the northeast side of Seoul. I was surprised that we didn’t bump into that many people, but then Suraksan is not as popular as the other mountains such as Bukhansan so i can see why. We got there from the Suraksan station which is located on Line 7. It’s very quiet, serene, and peaceful up in the mountains. This feels amazing compared to the hectic pace in the streets of Seoul.

Enjoy the photos!
