Two Biggies in Two Weeks: Seoraksan and Jirisan

My hiking group does these trips identified as overnighters. Don't get the term confused with a weekend trip, say, departing on a nice Saturday afternoon, staying in a hostel/motel/hotel, a brisk hike the next day and then going home in the early evening. No, they are definitely not that. Instead, they entail meeting at a rented bus at 11:30pm on a Friday night (after a full days work), traveling 3-4 hours in the night/"sleeping," and starting a climb up a mountain at 3-4 am in the dark. The hikes will last 12-16 hours and we'll head back for home late in the night.


Busan Daytrippers New Year's Day Hike

This Saturday the Daytrippers will be taking a short hike to the top of Baekyangsan in Busan. We will begin at 10AM at the entrance to Children's Grand Park (a cheap taxi from Seomyeon) and we will finish around 2PM in the same place. It will be cold and windy at the top so wear what you would be comfortable to hike in at the bottom and carry an extra windproof layer. A liter of water and some snacks are also recommended. This is not a technical climb although it is mildly strenuous. Please RSVP and/or contact Joe with any questions at BusanDaytrippers on Facebook.
