Create an itinerary including Halla Mountain
At the center of Jeju Island lies Halla Mountain, a designated nature reserve which contains hundreds of cone-shaped volcanos surrounding the main mountain. Famous for its diverse ecosystem due to changes in altitude and temperature, the park shelters 1,800 species of identified plant life and 4,000 species of animals. Go on a hiking trip of 10 km (6.2 mi) to explore the natural haven, or you can even head to the mountain top with no terrain difficulties. Bear in mind that the weather unpredictably changes, so make thorough preparations, especially before ascending to the peak. Using our custom trip planner, Seogwipo attractions like Halla Mountain can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Incredible mountain to hike! The trail itself isn’t difficult, but it is very very long, also a lot of staircase and tricky rocky paths. It took us around 7 hours to complete the trail back and forth, which is around 20km total, including breaks and a lunch on top. Definitely brings lots and lots of water! The feeling when you’re on top is amazing! Being 2000 meters high up in the sky in altitude is an incredible feeling! If you have the chance to hike this volcano, it’s something to experience in your lifetime!
  • A great hike with amazing view. It is hard to run the distance but it is a worthy challenge. Be sure to bring enough water
  • An incredible hiking trail! While you can't really explore the park other than the trail to the top, it's still an incredible place to spend a day. Take either trail up and take the other down for a great experience 😁
  • Definitely not for beginners. My legs still hurts but the climb was worth it. The view was amazing
  • As a UNESCO world heritage site, you would expect some kind of tourist office or at least someone that speaks english there. Very few information online on how to register to access the trails and the website kept crashing. We thought we would sort this out directly at the site but no english speaker (or any other language) and we ended up not being able get in!! Sincerely hope serious improvements will be made to welcome tourists. This absolutely ruined our day.
