glad to see lots of people taking on mad hikes. I hiked Jirisan, Nogodan to Daewonsa (bout 40km) last friday. Terrific in the snow.

2 weeks ago did Rotari-Nogodan in a day. 3-4 feet of snow in some places. great scenery!

I started the nakdong jeongmaek last feb, but it was too cold, all the water in the mountains was frozen, couldnt find anything to drink, had to come down after 5 days.

keep on trucking

This is incredible! On the website/blog it said that the books should be published already. Is this the case and if so, anybody know where I could get my hands on them?

Also, I'm living in Hwamyeong, Busan, right beside the Nakdong river. I've already explored a good deal of the trails in Guemjeongsan and would love to get my hands on some maps to be able to explore more of it, as well as the mountain on the other side of the Nakdong river which tantalizes me with her sunsets. I've heard rumors that it's possible to get lost for a couple days over in them mountains and would love to do so. Maps would be helpful though. So again, if anyone knows where I could get my hands on some, please let me know.

Cheers and happy trails

Canadian Grizzly, i live in haeundae, im in vietnam right now. when i get back in a couple weeks, i have a cd of korean mountain mapps compiled by a korean friend of mine. can make a copy.
also, try searching in naver of daum.
name of mountain in korean + "jido" (in korean, no korean on this keyboard, sorry). do an "I-mi-ji" search that often works for me.

for national park maps, google "korea in the clouds"

They haven't been published yet. There's been some delay for various reasons. As it is, though, the guide book will be published before the culture guide. The guide book will likely (or better, hopefully) be published in March. Don't expect the culture guide before summer.

The Baekdu Daegan guide book has been officially released, today July 2.

They can be purchased at the Seoul Selection book store (SS is the publisher) or ordered via David Mason's site (paypal or bank transfer): http://www.san-shin.org/order6.html
