Hi~ all!

Weather is beautiful in May and flowers blossom, leaves are green.What is the best way to enjoy this amazing spring?
Yes, let's conquer the highest peak in mainland~

We go on a trip to hike Jirisan and the highest peak,Cheonwangbong(1,915meter sea level high) in mainland of korea!(highest peak is the volcano peak Hallasan(1,50meter) in Jeju island.

Finally, all the trails in Jirisan National Park are open in May after mountain fire prevention period!
Jirisan national park is the largest and oldest of Korea's national parks.Traditionally, the mountain was thought to be one of the three places in which God dwelled.The name of Jirisan means “the mountain of the odd and wise people.” Perhaps due to this name, many hermits sought for truth, and devoted themselves at jirisan.Fourteen of the highest peaks in Korea are located along the ridge at Jirisan.

We will take you to the southern part of Jirisan which is the shortest trail 3.5 hours to the cheonwangbong peak and very difficult to get there by public bus.
The best part of this trail is there is a shelter on the half way to get water and the highest located temple in Korea where you can have relaxing time.It is mostly trails you can enjoy the stunning sunrise while hiking or on top of the peak if you are available.

And then, someone can extend the hiking along the ridges for couple of more peaks for 3~4 hours and descending for 3 hours, or someone can come down to the trails where we started to enjoy well-deserved delicious local food and chilling time in the river dipping your exhausted body!

Anyone want to make it to the top,don't worry! simply hiking with bunch of nice people you can get great achievement of conquering top and magnificent panoramic view top of earth!

We departs Seoul at 11PM and arrive at the parking lot 3AM.
then walk around 20 minutes to the paved road to entrance of trails~
and someone doesn't feel good on the moment, just can stay in pension and enjoy strolling the valley or hike up the valley as long as you want.
At the entrance,we will have one more time to get briefed about trails and

[ ♣ Cheonghakdong] and Samseonggung.
Cheonghakdong Village maintains the traditional style of daily Korean life. ‘Cheonghak’ means a community where a crane of blue feathers lives.
The southern part of Jirisan is way too deep and isolated,even when Korea War it is not touched and there is a village who live in confucianism and refuse to get the benefit of industrialization and only 20 years ago they get the electric power.We might meet some people who never get hair cut and walking around town with 100 years ago traditional clothes .Recently this place is developed to be a kind of tourist spot.So many of them moved more deep inside of mountain but still the place is worth of visiting to see the unique atmosphere.

[ ♣ Samseonggung]
holy ground to worship Hwanin, Hwanwung, Dangun and a monastery called Samseong-gung. There are about 1,500 various types of stone towers, which took 15 years to finish. These towers are in a restoration process, to pile stones up on the holy ground called Sodo, the place where ceremonies to praise the heavenly god were held during the Three Kingdoms Era. The site is still under construction, and the restoration will continue until 3,333 folk poles are finished. To enter the sanctuary, you must strike the gong at the wooden post three times and wait for an ascetic to guide you. Hats with English writing on it should be taken off, and one person of the party should wear the proper garment on behalf of the group. When the palatial residence is shown, the ascetic solemnly requests to the group to show respect. After the showing of respect, the group can tour freely.
