Hallasan: One of the Mountains where God lives.
Hallasan (or Halla Mountain) is the highest mountain in the republic of Korea, and if i am not mistaken (But probably am, is the second highest, after Baekdusan (Baekdo Mountain) which is now in North Korea. Hallasan stands in the centre of Jeju Do. At Hallasan's summit lies Paeknokdam or "White Deer Lake" which is home to loads of species of plants. If I remember to scan the slides I'll put some Hallasan Forest Pics on this page. Hallasan is also characterised by high peaks, steep slopes, rock-strewn valleys, and omnipresent azalea bushes, all of which provide a feast of the eye.
Anyway, as one of the Sam-shin-san (Three mountains where God lives), Hallasan is one of the most famous mountains in Korea for its scenic beauty. The southern part of the mountain is very steep, contrasting with the northern part which is comparatively easier to hike. The high peaks in the east and west are extensive and excellent places for challenging hikes.
