(1) This is back on the main trail to Baegundae Peak. It had a nice "rain forest" surrounding.
(2) Granite comes after the wooden stairs. Some areas have man made steps on the granite but for the most part, you'll find yourself relying on the rail... especially in this weather.
(3) Baegundae Peak (837m/2746'). It took me 20mins to get here from the unknown summit in the previous page. This gentleman is only about ten steps away from me but I could barely see him. I stayed for an hour at the summit, again hoping for a clear view but I just had no luck this day.
(1) This gentleman is taking advantage of something to see.
(2) I descended the summit together with a traveller from New Zealand. He met a Korean at the trailhead and they hiked together the whole time. Koreans are really friendly people.
(3) This is Wimun Castle Gate. I took the hole to my next objective, Mangyeongdae.
(1) The Korean man took the same route as mine and later on warned me about getting to the top of Mangyeongdae. For the most part I believe Korean hikers on what they say about the route and the mountain, but there's still a jackass inside me that doubt them. I believed him about the weather safety on Manjeongdae though so I skipped the ascent and moved on to my next target.
(3) This is the trail to Nojeokbong. I went over the rope and scrambled on granite rocks to claim the summit. The trail to Yonggamun is on the left.
(1) Nojeokbong (716m/2349'). It took me 40mins to get here from from Baegundae Peak. This again was not an easy hike. I found my way up here even more challenging than that of Yeongbong Peak.
(2) Yonggamun Castle Gate. The trail down to Doseonsa Temple is through the hole.
(3) I went straight along the fortress for a last rest stop on Dongjangdae Command Post before proceeding to visit Doseonsa Temple
. It took me 35mins to get here from Nojeokbong.
