We will hike Soorakasan one of 4 most beautiful mountains in and near Seoul!
As you can imagine from the names of the some of rocks, it's just so amazing to find interesting shapes of rock formation!
Helmet rock, backpack rock, tank rock, elephant rock, eagle rock, skirt rock and penis rock,...
And especially on our descending, the famous train rock(30 meter steep rock,it can ascend or descend with the help of giant ropes, also there is a detour trail for the fainted heart) let you test how brave you are. don't worry, while you are descending the rock with two hands holding ropes, some ajumma(old lady) will descend without help of rope as if she walk on the flat!

Along with the other great mountains near Seoul, Suraksan Mountain has its own unique beauty throughout the year. Its cluster of small peaks is reminiscent of Seorak or Wolchul mountains and among its valleys and peaks, a number of treasures unfold. As you explore the mountain and the surrounding area, you’ll discover Geunnyu, Eunnyu, and Ongnyu waterfalls, Heungguksa Temple (Silla Kingdom), Seongnimsa Temples (Joseon Dynasty), and Gwesanjeong Pavillion.
One of the most popular hiking courses on Suraksan Mt. is the one that starts from Danggogae Station (Subway Line 4) and passes Hangnimsa Temple and Yongguram. In the springtime, the ridge between Suraksan Mt. and Buramsan Mt. is covered with gorgeous royal azalea blossoms.
Suraksan Mountain is located on the border of Seoul, Eujeongbu-si and Byeolnae-myeon, Namyangju-si.
