Hike Camp and Travel
Mt. Munhaksan - 213m/699'

How To Get There: Take Incheon Subway Line 1 to Munhak Stadium Station.
First Ascent: The objective here was to walk across the stadium. We didn't take the closest approach to the mountain though so we ended-up walking a fair distance before we could actually start our hike.
Second Ascent (Traverse): After leaving the Munhak Stadium Station, we immediately crossed the highway, passed the pedestrian overpass, then we turned right on a small road towards the mountain.

First Ascent:
The lookout points here are well worth visiting especially the one overlooking the stadium... and there's a bonus treat if you come across some very friendly and very generous Koreans who are willing to feed you lunch on top.

Second Ascent: (East to West Traverse)
This traverse took us 1:45hrs from the east trailhead to the west. It was a very clear and beautiful warm day. The view of the landscape looked really sharp... from the towering buildings in the east to the ports and islands in the west.
