I am a male who has been living in Seoul for 30 years. I teach history at private academy and work as a travel guide.
On my day off, I often go for a walk in Ansan which is located behind my house. Of course, I know all over the place because it is my hometown. I can also give information about what tourists want to know because I'm a tour guide.
In Korea, usually when peopl hike, bring a gimbap.
Fortunately, There's a great gimbap restaurant in my neighborhood.

Where you'll be

Ansan - Not too rigorous and not too far from central Seoul, it is ideal for those looking for a nice hike within the city limits.
Ansan attracts fewer hikers than the big draws like Bukhansan and Namsan, yet it still offers a great view of Seoul. You rarely have to stand along a throng of hikers to savor the skyline of Seoul from the top of Ansan.

It was a very well planned hike. We were told about the history of the mountain and the animals that once inhabited the area. The view at the top was amazing. Well worth the trip to the top. We were lucky enough to see snow.

We had a great time walking up to the mountain. Despite the fact that it was extremely cold in that morning but worth it! The top of the mountain and the view along the way was extremely beautiful. Wooyong made us choose which passes we preferred to walk so we can see different view and he also shared related stories and experience along the way. We did laugh a lot. Worth to try!

Wooyong was really expert and friendly, he made us know all the secrets of the place where we were doing hiking. The activity was fun and the level of climb was ok for beginners. What surprised me is to know Ansan mt is still an important strategic point for the Korean army. The Gimbap was delicious, and the view fully worth the hike!

I had a great time with Wooyong! He's very friendly, funny, and communicative. Our group went up Ansan Mountain which was very doable for a beginner and also very beautiful. Along the way, he told us stories about the area, nature, and history. It feels like being shown around by a friend. I would highly recommend this experience with him :) p.s., even if you don't like hiking, I'd recommend going just for the kimbap! Completely worth it.

It was a fun morning hike with Wooyong. Though the weather condition wasn't ideal, I still enjoyed the hike with Wooyong and a new friend made during the trip. Wooyong is friendly and he knows the mountain very well. He was able to share with us knowledge of the mountain and anything we asked him. The kimbap he bought for us was really delicious too! Good time!
