The best hiking trails in Busan’s downtown area for city views near the stadium
Fall is a glorious moment of year in Busan, and it’s a great time to put on your hiking shoes and get some dirt on your feet. Hiking not only provides clean, fresh air and stunning scenery, but it has also been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, boost self-esteem and mood, and alleviate depression — not to mention burn calories and improve physical fitness even while traveling.
Baekyangsan Mountain and Hwangnyeongsan Mountain, both near the stadium, have great green forests with thick pine trees and cypresses. When the fall leaves change colors and fall to the ground, these mountains offer an especially easy hike through the woods with well-maintained trail paths, and are regarded as the best quick and easy treks in Busan.
Hwangnyeongsan Mountain is located in the heart of Busan and stretches across the districts of Busanjin-gu, Nam-gu, and Suyeong-gu. With a height of 427 meters, the mountain isn’t very high, so depending on where you start, it only takes one or two hours to get to the top.
Hwangnyeongsan Observatory, located at the summit of the mountain, offers panoramic city views of Haeundae, Gwangalli, Yeonsan-dong, and Dongnae, attracting many photographers.
One of the most popular hiking destinations in Busan is Baegyangsan Mountain, which encompasses Sasang-gu, Buk-gu, and Busanjin-gu. The trails are well-maintained and ideal for everyone. The most popular trail begins at Children’s Grand Park in Busanjin-gu and travels through Seongjigok Reservoir to the peak.
Hiking hilltop trails on Baekyangsan Mountain provide a panoramic view of the city as well. The mountain is 612 meters high, with a 9 km point-to-point trail near Busanjin-gu that is generally considered a moderately challenging route that takes an average of 3 h 57 minutes to complete.
Aejinbong Peak, one of the peaks of Baegyangsan Mountain, is a highly recommended spot from which to enjoy a panoramic view of Busan.
Seonamsa Temple, located at the foot of the mountain below Aejinbong Peak, has a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The Silla Period temple still serves as a rest stop for visitors to Baegyangsan Mountain.
Samgwangsa Temple is a 120,000 square-meter behemoth located halfway up Baegyangsan Mountain. The temple, founded in 1986, is the second of the Cheontae Order in Korean Buddhism. Samgwangsa Temple is known for harmoniously blending contemporary and traditional aspects of Buddhism. As a result, the temple is credited with actively modernizing Korean Buddhism, as well as promoting Buddhism internationally and integrating the religion with popular culture.
Exploring trails in Busan while traveling
Hiking is a popular way to spend time outside. There are trails for all skill levels all over the world, but getting past the first few miles of any hike will often get you out of the tourist zone and into more serious solitude with nature.
Hiking is a great way to reconnect with nature while visiting Busan.
