UKMC Korean Mountain Climb 2018

The 32nd UK Club Korean Mountain Climb took place on Saturday 8th September 2018 on Daemosan Mountain, one of the mountains that surround Seoul to the south of the country. The 157km-long Seoul Trail surrounding the city has eight courses running through mountains, forests, streams, and through villages and proves popular as a hiking trail.

Our team of 48 people walked our tailor made trekking route which included passing the Bulguksa Temple, the observatory and helipad before reaching the mountain's peak. From here the hikers enjoyed the breathtaking scenery and panoramic views of Seoul's iconic structures in Gangnam. The well-marked forest trails meant it took less than 3 hours to hike around a total of 4km.

A well-deserved Korean barbeque lunch was held afterwards with some attendees commenting on the 'very well organised event' saying they had 'great fun' and 'would like to join again' next year.
