Mountain Folklore Hike with Buddhist Temple and Hiker Restaurant

Embark on a small group 6-hour hike up Seoul's most famous mountain with Korean folktales told by an English-speaking expert . Take a unique trail away from the crowds to a hidden temple. Discover the mountain heritage that forms much of Korea's personality, followed by a mountainside meal and well-deserved food and drinks. This is not just a simple empty run up and down the mountain. The tour includes the most breathtaking views, stories and legends of famed Buddhist monks, ghosts, goblins, shamanic traditions, and how Korea's mountains define who Korea is. Hikers return with a deeper understanding of Korea than most tourists receive.
