Hike Korea also publishes English books and photographic essays on Korea's unique mountain culture. As Roger Shepherd of Hike Korea is a highly experienced hiker with two expeditions to the Baekdu-daegan, (including some sections in North Korea) six completed through-hikes of Jeong-maek (subsidiary ridges more than 200kms in length), and numerous other long distant walks on other ridges, Hike Korea therefore conducts its cultural research with the expeditionary study of Korea's mountain-scape and unique arterial-like topography.
