  • if you like nature you can come here. IN Korea there are a lot of places that you can hike or walk. like walk in the mountains etc. if you want to spend one day in nature I recommend this place  more »
  • If the weather allows, it's a nice walk: with the 500 bus, we stop at the stop "Sanmeung", and we climb to the summit Geumobong through a pine forest. Along the way, you can see Buddha statues or engravings on stones. You can make a stop at a monastery (you can buy water there), before reaching different beautiful views (from the top, you don't see much because of the trees). I then started the descent via the Yongjanggol valley (everything is well indicated on the signs), where the views are more beautiful (but some rocky passages not super easy): we finally arrive at the village of Yongjang where we take the bus. I took 3 hours for this hike, easier than that of the Baegundae in Bukhansan (near Seoul)
