[♣ night hike in Seoul]


some people think hiking is just for physical exercise but hiking say much more other things.


To get rid of stress is the key to live in modern society and get some good inspiration is not easy


from busy life. Hiking in mountain implies more about creativities,happiness,cure of mind,etc



the hiking in seoul is very busy in day time,but it is very quiet and peaceful at night!



* sometimes we walk some part of han river, town(Insadong,Hongdae,Myeongdong) together


It feels like real urban hike along the waves of people and crowded street and with nature!



♣ sometimes we walk 2 mountains next to each other,such as


- Achasan and Yongmasan, sometimes till Mang-u san,

♣ night hiking


- Normally, we walk around 2~2.5 hours / 6~8km.We finish around 1030PM, so you will be able to take the subway home since they run until about midnight.

- most of time,we hike with moonlights even without lantern.you can prepare lantern.

[♣ WALKING]


Not only will you benefit your body, but your mind as well.


- See the real world closely.


- Breathe naturally and relaxing on your mind.


- Gain a balance of your body and mind.


- Ready for peaceful soul



Walking has many diverse advantages towards your emotions and imagination as well as to your


mind. Most people only think about the physical benefits of walking and running. However, we need


to walk in order to rid ourselves of stress, gain peace of mind, and be able to see the real society


closely. Walking is the best way to gain balance in life. Drinking can easily relax you, but that can


fade quickly. Walking is a kind of way to meditate and finding yourself.



- There are several different types of walking.


Walk the road that you have never walked before.


Walk the road that you walk almost every day.


Walk the road that you've walked a long time ago, so that you feel at ease.


Walk the road that is not crowded, such as a field at rural cities.


Walk the road that is very crowded and see unexpected and diverse things.


Walk the road in the mountains, so that you can experience the effects of elevations,wonderful fresh air,gorgeous trees,forest,flowers,leaves,birds,stones.


Walk long or short distances.


Walk fast or leisurely.


Walk wide roads together with friends and enjoy talking.


Walk narrow paths alone.



We are all human travelers in this same space and time of our lives~!
