|I love the greens!!|
|What a refreshing walk!|
Its so nice to take a walk here. Mr Kwak, how challenging can it get??
Ahhmmm...the "best" has yet to come...
|Due to my portable handphone charger, majority of my pictures for the day have a "frame" in it..|
|I thought they will grow from the branches above! |
Never knew they could grow from the ground.
|Past by some eating places.|
|The water is so clear!|
|Mr Kwak said a certain angle of this mountain looks like a face but I forgot to observe.|
|I wonder who engraved those words on the rocks..|
|I better don't look down..|
|So I am at Biseondae.|
|Beware of falling rocks!|
|Directions to Geumganggul Cave|
|3.5 Km from here to Yangpok Shelter...|
Errr...I think I better stick to Geumganggul Cave
Many Koreans used hiking sticks in their hiking trips. I think hiking sticks help a lot especially in rocky path where there are no railings to hold on. From the picture, it doesn't look too difficult to walk here. NOOooo..it was really more challenging than Gatbawi.
Ever since my trip up Namsan Park to N'Seoul Tower last year, I told my friends that I could never forget the experience. However, after my hiking trip to Gatbawi, I told 필여 that I have totally forgotten how I made it to Namsan. Mr Kwak said hiking in Seoraksan will be more challenging than hiking at Gatbawi. I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT HE MEANT....
The higher I went, the tougher it gets. The route was rocky and steep. I stopped quite a few times to take a 2 mins rest.
|The two guys in the picture were teachers. |
They were here with their students who were way ahead of them.
The guy in red was panting hard and the students were cheering him on all the way.
|Only 0.2km to go...|
I was constantly on the look out for the little cave up in the mountain top!
|There it is!!|
I saw the little cave!! It looks very near!
|Little cave here I come!|
|How come the distance looks the same??!! I felt I have never move a step nearer to my destination.|

|Continuing my journey to the little cave.|
|The height of each step makes it difficult to go up the mountain.|
I think each step could be about 10 cm of height...
I have reached!!
I thank Buddha that I was able to reach here safely.
May all hikers come and return safe and sound.
May the metal railings and ladder be safe and strong for all to use.
|May all good wishes come true.|
|Looking out from the cave.|
|Time to make my way down..|
I didn't take note of the time taken to get here.
|I almost fainted becos I didn't realised it was so steep when I climbed up just now. |
Chanting my prayers as I made my way down....
I will be more terrified if there were many people walking up and down this ladder at the same time.
|A close up ^^|
|Back at Biseondae 비선대|
|Koreans can picnic anywhere!|
I hope I will have a chance to do so one day ^^
