Great & a Never Bored Experience
Olivia_P, 11-10-2022
Had a great time with Chance for this mountain hike. It was actually my second time after 3years since the last trip with him and i was never bored during the entire trip as we chatted alot on politics, culture and many other topics. During the hike, he ensures to keep pace with me and along the way he explains the history of the monuments/temples we walked passed. I would highly recommend to engage him as your guide !
Amazing Tour!

I’d originally booked the other course (Daechangbong) but got a call from Chance Kim (the guide for this tour) to find out more about our hiking experience and fitness level. He recommended that we switch to the Ulsanbawi course, which I appreciated because I had no idea what to expect regarding the difficulty level of hiking in Seoraksan.

First of all regarding the hike itself - the climb up is about 2.4km in distance (excluding the walk from the entrance of the park). We climbed up rock steps followed by an actual staircase - imagine living on the top floor of an apartment block and having the lift break down, with the difficulty/duration ramped up! However, combined with amazing views on the way up and at the top, the challenge is very worth it. I did the climb in May when all the trees are green and imagine it would be breathtaking in autumn.

Chance himself is a very experienced professional hiker and you can be assured you are in good hands signing up for his outdoor tours. He is knowledgeable about Korean history, politics and even flora/fauna which makes the trip even more interesting and enriching. I also need to mention that he’s a great driver - I get car sick easily especially when going through multiple mountain bends, but not in his car. He was also punctual and picked us up directly from our hotel in Seoul.

He also offers customised tours, and we were happy to engage him the following day especially after our good experience at Seoraksan. We weren’t able to make it to one place on the itinerary due to unforeseen circumstances, but he was able to quickly and flexibly suggest an alternative for us.

All in all, highly recommended! Go for this hike, you won’t regret it. We are glad we signed up.
A lovely day outside of the city

I had an amazing time with Chance. The drive to the mountain was so entertaining. We talked a lot about South Korea and travels in general. And the whole walk up to the mountain was lovely. The weather was perfect.

And after our hike we went to the beach side to have lunch and spend some time by the sea. An unforgettable day
