Full description
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.

    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.

    Good hike but it is difficult near the top of the mountain. Takes some getting on all fours to scramble up. Lots of little water crossings which were nearly flooded (it rained the night before). had to be very careful not to get in the water. Really hot in August, need to bring a large bottle of water.

    Lively and lovely Ms Moon was our guide. She was punctual and spritely, helping us to capture memories by taking photos along the way. Beautiful Summer weather and we were fortunately blessed with clear visibility. I even bumped into a Korean actor I recognised. Lunch and spa - not to be missed! Will sign up again and try a different trail next time. Thanks!
