Baegundae in Bukhansan National Park

In this video I am climbing Baegundae (834 m) in international team with Ms. Precious from Korea and Satoru-san from Japan. Mountain is located in Bukhansan National Park, which was very easy to reach by subway. Path is very stony and is like walking on stairs. There were really many people, so sometimes we had to stand and wait before proceeding in some narrow places. Near summit, we also met two students of Buddhism from Israel and Czech Republic. Baegundae is very international mountain indeed.
