Akajabong Guided Walk Schedule (JANUARY 2017)


Akajabong Guided Walk Schedule (FEBRUARY 2017)


***All walks begin from the route start point at 9:30 a.m. unless otherwise noted – red symbol in brackets (역 ) means the walk will start from the end point. A yellow box indicates no guided walk for that day. Try to arrive before 9:30 a.m. for greetings. Guided walks are in the Korean language with some limited English on occasions depending on the volunteer and are free of charge. Prepare suitable clothing for the weather and some snacks or drink. Walkers usually each lunch together at a restaurant (please pay for this). If you wish to join a guided walk you can just turn up, or pre-register (we prefer this) by sending me an email with the date and route you wish to join.***
