New Zealander hikes North, South Korea

Roger Shepherd is an avid outdoorsman who has hiked the length of the Korean Peninsula, both North and South. Hiking the length of Korea consists, essentially, of hiking the Baekdudaegan.

The Baekdudaegan (백두대간, 白頭大幹, or “Great White-Topped Mountain Range”) is the heart of the Korean Peninsula. It is an unbroken chain of mountains that runs from the Chinese-North Korean border all the way to Jirisan Mountain in the south.
