At the center of Jeju Island lies Halla Mountain, a designated nature reserve which contains hundreds of cone-shaped volcanos surrounding the main mountain. Famous for its diverse ecosystem due to changes in altitude and temperature, the park shelters 1,800 species of identified plant life and 4,000 species of animals. Go on a hiking trip of 10 km (6.2 mi) to explore the natural haven, or you can even head to the mountain top with no terrain difficulties. Bear in mind that the weather unpredictably changes, so make thorough preparations, especially before ascending to the peak.

  • I flow to Jeju just to walk up this mountain. You have to apply to the Hallasan National Park visitor management system for the QR code admission ticket. My ticket was for the Gwaneumsa Course...

  • Make sure you go early enough. Koreans are extremely cautious and the trials close far earlier than necessary so we did not make it to the summit. It is quite a nice trail and I highly recommend it.

  • Absolutely stunning. The journey path consists of three types of difficulty level easy, type A difficulty and normal difficulty), still the 9.6 km (~ 5 hour) was enjoyable. There are two shelters over the whole route. Before the summit one need to book the slot through visithalla.jeju.go.kr website and the certificate of completion can be obtained from the kiosk. Also one need to bring water and food accordingly. The view after reaching the peak heals all hardship and tiredness of climbing. Those refreshing feelings keep you strong while coming back. And the overall experience becomes a wonderful memory for the rest of life ❤️ ❤️.
  • A great hike with amazing view. It is hard to run the distance but it is a worthy challenge. Be sure to bring enough water
