    Why not take a trek through nature together with your family and your loved ones this approaching chilly autumn? Seoul will be operating Seoul Trekking twice in the second half of this year in the Haneul Park (September 28) and the Olympic Park (October 12). Seoul Trekking Program is a hiking program open to everyone who wants to ameliorate their health and enjoy nature-friendly leisure while walking in representative spots of downtown Seoul.

    The Haneul Park will provide a 6.4-km, 2-hour course where walkers can take photos not only against fields of silver grass, but also a variety of autumn flowers including cosmos and pink muhly grass. The Olympic Park will offer a 3.9-km, 1.3-hour course through which hikers can feel the peak of October’s autumn with the changing-colored leaves and waves of orange cosmos.

    In order to foster the growth of trekking culture, Seoul will provide excellent participants of the 2019 Seoul Trekking Program with time for communication and relaxation with their families and friends. The city will select members for a trekking expedition to Jeju Island, the island designated as a world natural heritage. The Jeju Trekking Program will be operated for three days and two nights starting on November 7.
