  A full-day hiking of Mt. Hallasan. Mt. Hallasan National Park stands tall in the middle of Jejudo Island. This mountain is the island of Jejudo. Mt. Hallasan is one of the 3 main mountains of Korean peninsular. Mt. Hallasan, standing 1,950m above sea level as the highest mountain in South Korea, is a dormant volcano with a lake crater at its summit. Every season at Mt. Hallasan presents a different and spectacular view, but it is most renowned for its springtime beauty, when the azaleas are in full bloom. Mt. Hallasan is located in the southernmost part of Korea, on Jejudo Island. Clouds ring the summit, and snow covers its peaks during winter, bringing to mind a snowy kingdom. The first glimpse of a beautiful scarlet sun rising in the east can be caught from here, and the blazing sunsets are likewise spectacular. A crater tops the mountain. The crater is “lake”, Bangnokdam (White Deer Lake), expands when the rains fall, and disappears during the drier autumn and winter. Folklore had it that benevolent wizards existed on the mountain, and that they entertained themselves at the lake crater while riding on white deer. That is why the lake is
 

called “Baengnokdam” (White Deer Lake). Running along the south central coast of the island is a semi-tropical climatic zone. From its warm climate to the cold climate areas, Mt. Hallasan is famous for its vertical ecosystem of plants. 1,800 kinds of plants and 4,000 species of animals (3,300 species of insects) inhabit here, and due to the well-developed climbing course, you can carefully observe the surroundings. Mt. Hallasan is a short climbing course. Less than 10km in length, it is possible to reach the peak and come back down in one day. But the weather conditions often change and there is a lot of wind, so you must be well prepared before going up the mountain. Lunch is on your own (You can prepare a carrying lunch such as sandwich, etc. at bakery in advance). Overnight in Jeju city. Accommodations at Yeogwan.
