The Baekdu-daegan chain of mountains forms the backbone of the Korean Peninsula. It has always occupied a very special place in the hearts of Koreans. More than just a series of rocky ranges, it is the source of the life and dynamic energy of the Korean people  and shelters many of their cultural and historical treasures. The long-distance Baekdu-daegan hiking trail provides a great opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts living in Korea and abroad to hike their way through a 735-kilometer geographical repository of culture and history that continuously yields new discoveries and experiences in what is a still largely unexplored part of a busy peninsula. This guide will get you packed up and ready to hit the road.

 

• Comprehensive and detailed trek-by-trek descriptions of the Baekdu-daegan trail

• Helpful tips to get you ready and confident for hiking

• Detailed maps and transport information

• Cultural and historical background information
