The World Heritage Office adjusted the entry time for all courses in Hallasan National Park from 5:00 am to 5:30 am.
The entrance restrictions for each course are from 3:00 pm. to 2:00 pm for the Eorimok and Yeongsil Courses (at the trail entrances), from 2:00 pm to 1:30 pm for the Witse Oreum Shelter, and from 1:00 pm to 12:30 pm for the Seongpanak Course (Jindalaebat Shelter).

Kim Geun-yong, director of Hallasan National Park Management, said, "We recommend that hikers choose a trail appropriate for their physical conditions before leaving, do warm-up exercises such as stretching, and stay safe during the journey." He added, "Since Seongpanak and Gwaneumsa Courses do not have facilities that provide drinking water, please bring enough bottled water with you."
