Doing hiking is the perfect way to purifying yourself from daily stress. Is also an activity that everyone can enjoy it doesn’t matter the age. Koreans consider this activity as a perfect way to take a rest, doing exercise and spend time with family and friends.
While hiking, you might be able to see in different parts of the mountain a pile of stones, it has a religion meaning about hope and wish. So when people are climbing the mountain they pile a stone over other stones and make a wish, usually a simple wish like health or success in school or work. Of course, passing the years there had been some different meanings like some people say that many years ago in Korea were used as a weapon and a way of protection and in some other cultures they had been doing this as a way to mark the trail.
