A day In Serpent’s tail trail in Gapyeong

Written by Paul Hoffmann

On June 3, 2024, Team AK headed to Gapyeong to venture into the famous Serpent’s tail trail for canyoning. Canyoning is an adventure sport that involves navigating through canyons using a variety of techniques such as hiking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling (rappelling), and swimming. It often takes place in remote and rugged natural settings, requiring participants to traverse waterfalls, rock formations, and water-filled gorges.

The Serpent’s Tail Trail in Gapyeong, South Korea, is a renowned hiking route celebrated for its challenging terrain and stunning vistas. Named for its winding, serpentine path, this trail offers a mix of steep climbs and descents, making it a favorite among seasoned hikers and adventure seekers.

This route starts with a 40-minute hike, continues with zip-lining that makes you feel light as if you were flying, and then continues with rock climbing where all your strength and balance are needed. Finally, it’s time to have some fun with the natural water slide, which guarantees a thrilling experience. Participants were also able to take a refreshing dip in one of the small pools, allowing everyone to unwind from their exertions.

This activity is a unique opportunity to challenge yourself and face your fears. But it’s also a great way to get in touch with nature, and discover beautiful landscapes you’re not used to seeing. Moreover, an experience of this kind is sure to create countless unforgettable memories, as well as strengthening team spirit and friendship.

If you like sensations and physical effort, this is the activity for you, and you’re guaranteed to have a great time, just like the AK team did. It allowed everyone to relax and de-stress.
