A South Korean Mountain Sketchbook

ByJacob Lotinga

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Curious about South Korean culture and society? Transfixed by tales of snowy mountain escapades? Then you could do worse than while away an afternoon with these engaging sketches. This sketchbook features finely-crafted, illustrated accounts of six mesmerising peaks: - Mount Halla (the highest in South Korea, 'catching the Milky Way'); - Mount Naejang (with 'treasure within', a cautionary tale for would-be hikers!); - Mount Taebaek (a prominent shamanist peak); - Mount Wolchul ('moon-rise mountain', with its chasm-spanning Cloud Bridge); - Mount Du-ryun ('wheel-head', rising from the Korean peninsula's southern tip); - Mount Mudeung (supposedly 'unrivalled'). What better way to explore South Korean culture and society than by hiking, in this country dominated by mountains? Jacob Lotinga has previously authored China's Holy Hikes.
