Hallasan National Pa...
Introduction
Hallasan (Halla Mountain) rises up proudly from the center of Jeju Island and is perhaps the island’s most memorable landmarks. Also called Mt. Yeongjusan, meaning “mountain high enough to pull the galaxy,” Hallasan is widely known by scientists for its geological value. Designated as a national park in 1970, there are 368 mountains called Oreums (peaks) around Hallasan Mountain.

Hallasan is famous for its vertical ecosystem of plants that results from the varying temperatures along the mountainside. Over 1,800 kinds of plants and 4,000 species of animals (3,300 species of insects) have been identified; to explore the mountain’s treasures, simply follow one of the well-developed mountain hiking trails.

Hallasan Mountain is relatively easy to hike. With hiking courses less than 10 km in length, it is possible to go to the peak and back in one day. However, the constantly changing weather brings a lot of wind, so make sure that you are well prepared before you start climbing.
