Halla Mountain Sunrise Peak Hiking Reservation System by 2017

This system should be in place by the second part of 2017 and all routes will have controlled access.

A working group of 25 people tasked with examining ways to protect the island’s nature began back in June 2016. This is the group’s first decision after more in-depth discussions throughout September.

This is not the first time such a hiking reservation system has been installed in South Korea. Jirisan’s  Chilseon Valley and Bukhansan’s Wooiryeong Road are just two examples of this.

UNESCO World Heritage site Geomun Oreum on Jeju Island also restricts visitors to 100 per day on weekdays and 200 on vacation days.

Halla Mountain yearly visitor statistics:

2012: 1,134,316 / 2013: 1,207,661 / 2014: 1,66,202 / 2015: 1,255,731

Sunrise Peak yearly visitor statistics:
