Guided Tour of Jeju Island for special attraction

'SIT' stands for Special Interest Tour, specialized for tourists who'd like to explore special attraction, Halla mountain, the highest mountain in South Korea.
Halla mountain is situated at the middle of the island, so from everywhere you can see this shield volcano from distance.
It has 5 main hiking courses, among which just 2 trails lead you to the top crator, Baeknokdam, taking 7~ 8 hours for round trip.
Though this tour, I'll guide you to Yeongsil hiking trail, the most beaultiful and shortest one for round trip of around 3~4 hours, but not leading to the top of the mountain, as I arrange more sites to look around on the south after hiking.
On Yeongsil trail, you can see amazing panoramic views with legendary rock formations and valuable vegetaion, looking down the half of Jeju island and the ocean. Stepping on rock stairs and wooden stairs on the way will let you get warm hello from locals and other hikers, which enhances your joy of being in Mt. Halla.
More recommended in autumn and winter.

A Recent Review of this tour

We greatly enjoyed our tour of Jeju Island with Lydia. We hiked Hallasan, and she met us with a great lunch of rice and seaweed rolls (kimbap, I believe). We enjoyed the tea plantation and tea house, the lava cliffs and a delicious traditional Korean lunch. We also swung by the seashore as winds picked up, to watch the waves crashing on the basalt rocks on the shore. Lydia's English is excellent, and she has a great sense of humor and is very accommodating. Her vehicle was a very clean, comfy minivan
