We drove to Cheonggyesan - in fact Hubby ROCKED it getting there. I knew how to get to the Yangjae subway station by car and then he winged it from there and he drove STRAIGHT to the mountain. (I'm sorry I ever doubted him! :)
This is the route you will go when driving or by subway -
Walk straight, turn right when you get to this underpass.
Take a right at the 1st alley.
(Just follow all the hikers!)
And you are there!
There are tons of trails to choose from....
(These signs crack me up. I can't help but to laugh and take a picture each time I see them!)
and MORE STAIRS!!
They are still smiling...
This hike was super crowded as we continued to go up, up, up....
I was so proud of the kids!
Our GPS told us our stopping time was a little more than our hiking time.
But we didn't care, everyone made it!
I couldn't have been more proud of these kids.
This was their toughest hike to date!
And they are STILL SMILING!
(As they should be!)
Asian Pear ice cream chillers never tasted so good!
The kids (and I) were all experiencing 'wobbly legs'!
And now 3 days later my calves are still aching a bit...
As with all hikes, we ended with a yummy lunch.
This time we took the kids somewhere they have been wanting to go for a while....Brooklyn Burgers!
To get there by subway:
Line 3 to Yangjae Station from there get on the newly opened Shinbundang Line and go to Cheonggyesan Station. Go out exit 2 and follow it to the underpass (in the top picture!)
