Mt. Bukhan Hike & Korean-Style Spa with Full Body Treatment

1. Mt. Bukhan Hike & Korean-Style Spa with Full Body Treatment

Take a break and get some fresh air by climbing Mount Bukhan and having a Korean-style sauna experience. Meet at your hotel in Seoul between 8:00AM and 9:20AM, then transfer to Mount Bukhan, Seoul’s highest mountain designated as a national park in 1983. Starting from the main entrance of Mt. Bukhan, you will stop by Seunggasa Temple and climb up to Samo Rock which takes around 2.5 hours. At the end of your hiking experience, enjoy delicious Korean food for lunch. After lunch, relax your muscles at a Korean traditional sauna, similar to Jjimjilbang (if option selected). It’s a Korean-style sauna which is an indoor bathhouse separated by gender. Start with seshin, a Korean body cleansing service, with a rub-down by a ddemiri or "scrub practitioner" who sloughs away layers of dead skin from your entire body using a thin tower. All services, including scrubbing, a body oil treatment, face pack and shampoo, will be provided by an expert and will take around 1.5 hours. Your hotel drop off will be around 5:00PM.

Super well organized from beginning to end. The tour was fantastic! Mira, our tour guide, was spectacularly accomodating and responsive to any inquiries. Seoraksan was beautiful, if only we could have stayes longer than 3.5hours! Naksansa Temple had a lovely view of the East Sea. All around, I would recommend this tour package!

It was a great experience and the guide was very kind und professional

It was gerat, hiking or rather climbing was quite hard but the view was worth it. I enjoyed the Temple the most when we where hiking down, the architecture and the female monchs where beautiful. Also the tour guide was super nice and well informed, very professionel. I recommed this tour if you like hiking.

The mountain was amazing! Had many hours to spend there. The temple was a little lack-lustre as we were tired out from hours of hiking. If you enjoy hiking this is a trip for you! I will definitely need to go back to Mt Seoraksan! Our guide, Hakim, was very attentive to any issues we had along the way.

The day with Seo was awesome! Seoraksan is very beautiful during fall season and the Naksansa temple by the sea worth a trip. Would definitely go there again, preferably with the same guide!

Guid was super sweet and could tell us a lot about the area. Unfortunately it was raining all the time but despite that we got some magical views of the mountains.
