At 800 years old and reaching 25 m (82 ft), the world's oldest nutmeg tree--“Ancestor tree of the Bija trees”--grows in the green oasis of Bijarim Forest. The evergreen forest contains around 2800 nutmeg trees between 500-800 years old, with their nutmeg known for its beneficial effect on the immune system. Walk around the picturesque pathways and breathe the fresh air, or sit on the park's benches and large rocks, enjoying the vista of rich treetops spreading like spider's webs. Feel the soothing ambiance and energizing power of the beautiful forest.

Bijarim Forest reviews
One of the most relaxing forests I have ever visited in Korea. Even though there were quite a lot of people around the entrance, once you go in, you feel isolated and alone surrounded by nature. The..... more »
There are some forests that are a bit more special on the island in my opinion. But this was a lovely hourlong walk that was easy and perfect for my five year old. more »
I really liked this forest because it's a nice, relaxing walk in a beautiful surrounding among trees that are hundreds of years old. It's very cheap admission (I think around 2,000 won for adults) and takes about an hour to an hour and a half to walk through. The total course is 3.2km if you walk the whole route. It's a very easy walk, but some parts are loose rocks, so wear appropriate foot wear.
Love the trails here, flat and good footpath. It takes about an hour to walk the entire forest path at a leisure pace. Entry for adult is 3000 KRW.
