Exclamation The Greatest Korean Trekking Route

Esteemed fellow climbers and hikers all, lend me your eyes, for I have cut and pasted a very interesting message from the lean mean green snow leopard himeslf, "Hypoxic" (aka Shawn of KML - visit the web-page, it's a great site and group! Bottom any KOTR page link.).
A cou[ple of intrepid Kiwis have done the deed and hiked from Jirisan to Seoraksan whilst mapping, researching and being environmentally groovy blokes. Check this out!
Not sure if I told you about the Baekdu Daegan Expedition Project for which I'm the assistant researcher. In brief, two kiwi guys started trekking from Jirisan on September 2nd and followed the Baekdu Daegan up to its northern border in Seoraksan, and just finished today. About 70 days in all. The four of us (the two trekkers/field researchers, a Kyunghee University professor/chief researcher, and me/assistant researcher) are gather all data regarding environment, culture, and trails for two publications: a trekking guide a la Lonely Planet, and a coffee table style book. As far as our research shows, this is the first time non-Koreans have ever trekked the entire length of the ridge and the first indepth research ever done on the subject for availability in English. You can check out the blog for more: www.baekdudaegan.blogspot.com.
