Hike Camp and Travel
Bibong Peak - 560m/1837'

How To Get There: I took my wife with me on this hike and scramble, to the southern part of Bukhansan National Park. We took the subway to Dokbawi Station of Seoul Line 6. We then walked to the Bulgwang Ticket Booth and started our ascent there.

These were the other crux. This part was actually more dangerous than the previous ones. The granite wall we had to ascend was wet and what we were stepping on was on an angle, and was also wet.
With the help of old grandmas showing us off, we proceeded with the ascent. We had a heart pounding moment and a few scratches but we managed to pass the crux safely.

(1) This is Bibong Peak (560m/1837'). It took us half an hour from Hyangnobong Peak. We had a good relaxing time here after all the difficult terrain we had to pass.
(3) At Seunggabong Peak. We passed by the Samobawi Rock on our way here and we had to go through more wet slippery granite. It took us 40mins to get here from Bibong Peak.

Seunggasa Temple didn't seem very far from Samobawi Rock but trail led us to a long descent and around the foot of the temple. Since we had to go up again to see the whole temple, we didn't bother going for the full tour.
