Happy holidays and a wonderful new year.
This Saturday December 25, 2010, the Seoul International Hikers' Club will go for a hike on Baegundae, literally, White Cloud Platform, the highest peak of Bukhansan via Doseonsa (temple) in north of Seoul. This is a fairly challenging trail.
We will take a bus (# 1217) to its last stop and, if available, take a shuttle bus up to the temple, the highest point on Bukhansan that is reachable by transportation. The temple, Doseonsa was established by Greast Monk Doseon during the Silla era in 862, and is the main temple that represents north of Seoul (Bongeunsa, the south of Seoul). If you feel you cannot hike this Saturday morning, you can alternatively decide to take a rest at and look around the temple for a couple of hours till the rest of the group returns from hiking.
Where we meet: Just outside Exit #4 of Suyu subway station (Line 4, stn. #414)
When: 11:00 a.m., Saturday, December 26, 2010
What we will do: Hike to Baegundae (or visit Doseonsa), and have a meal somewhere in the neighbourhood afterwards
Cost : 20,000won, Each person will pay for their own meal.
Duration: 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
