4 Hallasan Trails – Which one is best and how to get there?
There are four Hallasan trails on and around the mountain, but only two of these trails will take you all the way up to the volcano’s crater lip – the Gwaneumsa trail, and the Seongpanak trail:
Gwaneumsa Trail – 8.7km (one-way) and 8-10 hours return hike <– the BEST views!
Seongpanak Trail – 9.6km (one-way) and 7-9 hours return hike <– the EASIEST hike!
Eorimok Trail – 4.7km (one-way) and 2.5 hours return hike
Yeongsil Trail – 3.7km (one-way) and 2 hours return
After the last trip of steep walking up to Aowanda (奧萬大) suspension bridge; Auntie8888 is quite weary of another steep walking up mountain hike. LOL!
So forget about best view!
