About the event
The first 30 minutes of this walk is a leisurely urban walk along Samcheong-dong before we embark on a 30 minute trail uphill, that starts off with "carpet" and then steps. The uphill bit takes 30 or 30+ minutes at a slow pace and we can rest and admire the views along the way. This trail had been off-limits to the public for 54 years, due to security concerns as it is near the Blue House. But since President Yoon has decided to reside elsewhere, the trails have been opened to the public. We will end in Buam-dong, which has many fabulous restaurants, so come hungry and stay for lunch. From Buam-dong, it is a short bus ride to Gyeongbokgung (Line 3) station. Bring plenty of water. BASS and AWC members free, and potential new members free. We ask that out of town visitors donate KW10,000 to support our charitable causes. Our annual membership renewal begins in September.
