Sivu 26

In the Seoul area there are several Buddhist temples close to hiking routes. If you are up for a longer, more challenging trek, try the Baekundae route. Take metro line 3 to the Gupabal station and from there a bus to the Bukhansanseong bus stop. Nearby are about a dozen signposted trails ranging from nine to 12 kilometres long. Each may take you the better part of a day, but offers exhilarating experiences at the top of the area's highest peak, Baekundae (836 m), which offers an awesome 360-degree panorama over the mountains and Seoul. Nearby Insubong Peak has a vertical granite face that is a mecca for rock climbers. Here, too, there is a surviving section of ancient defensive wall about ten kilometres long. It's unusual because of its 13 gates built in the 18th century, 12 Buddhist temples and many wells. From the summit of Baekundae, you can either retrace your steps or take the Yongammun scenic route, which is three kilometres longer. Many parts of the route are lined with metal railings, as there are large drops. This steep mountain demands reasonable fitness and a sense of adventure. Finnair flies nonstop five times a week to Seoul.
