  • Mt. Bukhan Hike & Korean-Style Spa with Full Body Treatment

    1. Mt. Bukhan Hike & Korean-Style Spa with Full Body Treatment

    Take a break and get some fresh air by climbing Mount Bukhan and having a Korean-style sauna experience. Meet at your hotel in Seoul between 8:00AM and 9:20AM, then transfer to Mount Bukhan, Seoul’s highest mountain designated as a national park in 1983. Starting from the main entrance of Mt. Bukhan, you will stop by Seunggasa Temple and climb up to Samo Rock which takes around 2.5 hours. At the end of your hiking experience, enjoy delicious Korean food for lunch. After lunch, relax your muscles at a Korean traditional sauna, similar to Jjimjilbang (if option selected). It’s a Korean-style sauna which is an indoor bathhouse separated by gender. Start with seshin, a Korean body cleansing service, with a rub-down by a ddemiri or "scrub practitioner" who sloughs away layers of dead skin from your entire body using a thin tower. All services, including scrubbing, a body oil...

    It was gerat, hiking or rather climbing was quite hard but the view was worth it. I enjoyed the Temple the most when we where hiking down, the architecture and the female monchs where beautiful. Also the tour guide was super nice and well informed, very professionel. I recommed this tour if you like hiking.

Invigorating

Lively and lovely Ms Moon was our guide. She was punctual and spritely, helping us to capture memories by taking photos along the way. Beautiful Summer weather and we were fortunately blessed with clear visibility. I even bumped into a Korean actor I recognised. Lunch and spa - not to be missed! Will sign up again and try a different trail next time. Thanks!

It was a great experience and the guide was very kind und professional

Very nice place, only we could hardly grab the cable car as the guide told us about the weather, after being there we saw that it was already working and we could climb the mountain that is the most impressive part of the tour if not It would not have been so good.

Very nice discovery of another side of Korea. Beautiful ride with cable car climb with beautiful view of the summits of the Séorak park. The fish market and the view of the East Sea

Very convenient, beautiful places, and friendly tour guide.
