Korea Tip of the Day: Hiking this season? Plan your hike with map apps!

Stripes Korea

Whether you’re new to hiking or a master of the trails, figuring out which is the best course in Korea can be a challenge. Use Kakao Map or Naver Map before you hit the trail. Both map apps provide directions and distance in kilometers for most of the hiking trails on the Peninsula. Give them a try before you take a hike!

Kakao Map
Try to search the mountain on the map and zoom in. It automatically shows you all the possible trails with distance and time around the mountains.


Naver Map
First, add “trail” on the setting to see all the possible trail courses of the mountain on the map. To search, input the mountain name and add the word “course.” For instance, try “Jirisan course” if you’re headed for a brisk hike on Jirisan Mountain.
