Guide Book to be released April 2009

We are pleased to announce that two books will be published on the Baekdu-daegan. a progressive and establised Korean Publisher are equally excited about the long-term prospects of the great white ridge and have agreed to publish the two books, hopefully by April 2009.

One will be a guide book containing as much information as possible about the ridge and how to hike it. The second book to be written by Prof. David Mason and will be an informative account about the symbolic significance of the Baekdu-daegan and the many interesting ways it represents the people of Korea.

We also plan to launch an interactive website about the Baekdu-daegan sometime later this year, so that hikers can share and update information about the ridge or other long distance hiking locations in Korea. (Pictured left is a 1750 map of Korea highlighting mountain ridges)
