Mount Yudalsan – Hiking in Mokpo [7 Photos]

Mount Yudal hike in Mokpo
On our bus tour back from Jindo to Seoul we had a stop for Hiking in Mokpo and for a quick lunch. Mokpo is located in the southwestern coastal area of South Korea. The city is smaller and full of shipping vessels, mountains, and colorful homes.

Mount Yodal Hike in Mokpo

We only had 2 hours, but it was a great break between being couped up in the bus all day. We hiked up Mount Yudalalsan in the heart of Mokpo. Throughout this quick, beginner hike there are beautiful panoramic views of Mokpo and neighboring islands. We also saw rock carvings and small temples throughout the hike.

After a rough winter, we were happy to have some nice warm weather. Even though it was overcast, we were able to enjoy the quick hike up Mount Yudalsan. We would like to have more time to visit Mokpo, but if you are passing through this is a great, quick way to stretch your legs on a long road trip.
