Hiking Gayasan Mountain

I wrote a post last year about the temple stay that we did at Haeinsa temple and how beautiful it was around there and so this year we decided to go back but just for the hike around the area. It took about 4.5 hours in total and it was definitely a workout, although for me that’s not saying much. It was still quite cold that weekend with a little bit of snow still on the ground so we were worried it would be too cold to hike but it turned out to be a little sunny that day and the hike up was pretty decent. However when we arrived at the top the wind was SO strong and icy that we could pretty much just snap some picks and then head down again. So I wouldn’t mind doing it again on a day when the weather is better and we could spend some more time at the top, the view was amazing!
