    Chuseok Holiday Hiking in Jirisan National Park

    My first mountain hike in Korea happened to be in Jirisan National Park. It has been quite a while since I last did an uphill hike. I remember how tiring it was to climb the Mount Kinabalu back in 2000 and that was 17 years ago when I was still young! But this mountain wasn’t that high so, it shouldn’t be any problem right 🙂 We started planning our trip two months ago when Adam confirmed his visit to Korea. However, the train tickets were booked one month before the travelling date due to the online booking condition set by Korail. We were quite worried about not getting any ticket…

Find out how to get there and what to expect from Odusan Unification Observatory.
