Going up Hallasan

Spring starts earlier in Jeju, so by the time we took the Yeongsil Trail up Hallasan in late Apr, it was already too late to see the pink azaleas that dress the mountain up for spring every year. Still, good exercise we had there!

[Jeju] A spring day at Hallasan

I remember this day. We walked a 2.4km slightly-uphill slope to the start of the 3.7km Yeongsil 영실 mountain trail. We made a new Korean friend who hiked and dinnered with us. We didn’t see the pink azalea flowers we set out to see; perhaps they have withered under the heat.

We walked another 6.1km to get down, and we had very sore feet after the hike.

I crave to return.
