Why Hiking on Hala Mountain is special ?

At 1,950 m (6,400 ft), this is Jeju's most distinctive landmark, and South Korea's highest peak. Furthermore, it is one of Jeju's three UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites. Detailed information in English on the trails and hiking advice is given on the webpage of Hallasan National Park [17]. There are five hiking routes available, only two of which actually goes to Baeknok Lake (Baekrokdam 백록담) at the top. Despite this, the routes terminating at Witse Oreum (윗세오름) are in themselves popular for good reason. Note that the trails are regularly closed and re-opened for conservational reasons. The 1.5 km route linking the trails on the west side and the top of Mt Halla has been closed for some time. Witse Oreum has a manned rest house and a very basic shop that sells coffee and ramen.
