Saturday began with a quick stop at GS25 to load up with food and water for the day and then we were on our way to Jirisan. The bus dropped us off at Jungsan-ri leaving us with a 20 minute uphill walk to the base of the park. There we took one last look at the map, confirming our hiking route - we went with the steeper but faster option for a grad total of 5.4km to the peak estimated to take around 5 hours. After that it would be another 1.7km (downhill) to Jangteomok, our home for the night.
