Fun trail, but there are lots of visitors. There are designated times to get up the trail before closing. You must start no later than 12:00pm and start descending no later than 2:00pm. I recommend checking the weather and cloud ceiling because it will hinder your view at the top of the mountain if the clouds are low.

First winter hike..Rocky trail, icy and slippery in winter advisable to use crampons to provide traction on ice and walking stick for balance. Breathtaking view throughout. Note: need to get to Jindallaebat by 12:30pm so start early if you plan to hike to the top.

Rocks on the trail made it a not so enjoyable and challenging hike. Climbed up Gwaneumsa and down Seyongpanak. Made it to first checkpoint with 30 min to spare and to the top at 1320. Took me 5 hrs. All hikers must start descent at 1330. Took me 4 hrs. I've hiked longer and climbed higher trails before. Some of them I will do it over again. This one I am happy to check it off my list.

We hiked up Seongpanak and down Gwaneumsa, it was a good but not great hike, mostly due to the massive crowds. We arrived at the trailhead at 0900 on the 281 bus from Seogwipo, and the parking lot was already almost full. The trail guide was very helpful in showing us which buses to take back to Seogwipo from gwaneumsa, and told us there’s a checkpoint about 2/3 up that you need to reach by 1230, or else you’ll be turned around! The hike itself is pretty difficult, but does have some good views of pretty much the whole island. I’d do it again, but would go much earlier in the day.

The trail has quite a variation in walking. You walk on stones, stairs and wood boards. It's a hard trail to do, we had all the way up and down rain with clouds surrounding us. So no exceptional views or beautiful natures. But still enjoyable to do! It's quite busy early in the morning, that's because you have to pass the second shelter before 12.30 pm. After that there will be no admission anymore to the summit. Also, everybody need to get down after 14.00 pm.

Good hike, really enjoyable. The hike isn’t too tough as there is a fibre mat down for part of it and a lot of wooden boardwalk towards the top. We had a cloudy day so didn’t take the Gwaneumsa trail down, but would have had it been clear.

Nice trail. Mostly stairs. Intense at times. Very beautiful at summit. Went to the summit and back in 5.5 hours.

I was caught in the rain for about 6 hours, yet it was one of the most exciting hike ever.

Wild. Quite a difficult hike, definitely start early! The trail is "timed"- have to reach certain points by a certain time, otherwise you're forced to turn around. The views were great and there's a photo-op at the summit next to a rock that (probably) says you've reached the summit.

Just did the Gwaneumsa trail up and down, but just that trail isn’t listed on this site. Beautiful, though too misty to see into the crater at the top, definitely a hard and exhausting hike but so worth it.
