This national park based on Mt. Bukhansan makes for a picturesque and serene day trip and is a highly rated activity in Seoul.
Mt Bukhansan was declared a national park in 1983 and has a range of activities for the visitors. It is extremely famous among hikers and trekkers due to it's trails, such as to the peaks of Baegundae and Insubong. The park is a heavily forested area and it is maintained by rotating the access to the hiking trails to preserve the natural environment. There are also many temples dotted around the park. The park is actually so famous that it is mentioned in the Guinness Book of World Records for most visitors per square foot. The Bukhansanseong Fortress is another major feature of the park. It was built back in the 2nd century and extended over the years to protect Seoul from invaders. The hiking trail to the Fortress is frequented by thousands every day. It changes it's beauty with the seasons, with the spring and summers being colourful and lush, the autumns providing a enchanting red colour to the entire scenery and of course the snow capped mountains during the winters. Bukhansan National Park is a scenic location, with green and rocky mountains, combined with valleys and rivers. A great excursion!
