Whether you view it as a way to socialise, a way to keep fit, a way of seeing nature or perhaps a mix of all three, the Wednesday morning Bass Walkie Talkie is a great way to explore the fascinating surrounds of Seoul.We tackle everything from short urban strolls in the depths of winter to 2–4 hour hikes along the 18.6 km Seoul City Wall Trail, which runs around the centre of the city, and the 157km long Seoul Dulle-Gil, which surrounds Seoul, and all day Super Walkie Talkies such as around Namhansanseong, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and hikes to the top of the granite peaks in the Bukhansan National Park. As you can see, there is something for everyone!
The details of each hike – the venue, the start time, the meeting place and some information about the walk itself – are posted on the calendar in Events and also on the Bass Facebook page. Each walk is given a grading from easy to very difficult and everything in between so that you know exactly what you are letting yourself in for. At the end of each hike we generally stop for coffee (or tea or lemonade) at one of the many specialty coffee shops in Seoul.You don’t need any special clothing but we do recommend that you wear hiking boots that have a good grip and are designed to protect your feet and ankles and always bring along something to eat and drink.
We are a very friendly and welcoming walking group so pull on your boots and come hiking with us as we discover the fascinating trails, amazing temples and fantastic views around Seoul. Walkie Talkies are free for members or 10,000W for non-members, with all proceeds going to the charities that we support.
