Myeongsang-gil Section

Jeongneung Parking Lot – Hyeongjebong Peak Entrance

Set off from the information center through Bukhansan National Park and head for Cheongsusa Temple, then you will find yourself on the Myeongsang-gil section. The path will take you along the valley between Bukhansan Mountain’s main hiking course, Daeseong Ridge and Hyeongjebong Ridge, which are sure to present quite a challenging climb, but once the path starts to descend you will be greeted by a grove of dense oak trees. The moment the cool breeze brushes across your sweat-covered face, you will know the tough climb was worth it.
This section is connected to the entrance of Bukhansan Haneul-gil, which used to be a military zone and hence closed to public access. However, the path was opened to the public due to popular demand. Myeongsang-gil is located where Baekdudaegan Ridge, the single largest mountain range and considered the backbone of Korea meets with Hanbuk Ridge. Taking the Bugaksan-gil will lead you directly to Gwanghwamun Gate and Cheonggyecheon Stream in the heart of the capital.
As soon as the path escapes Jeongneung-dong Village you will be greeted by the Bukhansan Mountain Information Center and a full view of clear waters pouring down the valley. Hikers are sure to feel peace of mind while taking in the tranquil scene where an old tavern once opened its doors to weary travelers. The Bukhansan Mountain Center, built on the former site of the old tavern, is as an educational facility offering comprehensive information on the national park and its role.
