The hard hike

Sunday morning, we headed out for a hike on Mt. Bukhan in Korea. We weren’t told how difficult or how long the hike would be, but that it would be a “real hike,” and not a Sunday walk in the park.

For those who had enjoyed the finer points of the Seoul nightlife on Saturday night/Sunday morning, the hike was a bit more challenging. The journey took us up some steep trails, but provided spectacular views.

Surprisingly, we were some of the only foreigners on the mountain, but held our own in terms of pushing through. After our ascension to the top, we scrambled down the mountain, which actually was harder on the knees than going uphill. At the end of the hike, most of us went to a restaurant in the nearby village and enjoyed the traditional fermented wine.
