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.

  • I was visiting a rainy day, but I was eager to take the rain of the forest, but when the rain began to fall, I was not taken to the right scent. It is a place where you can eat and take a tour, but ㅎ ㅎ again!

  • First of all, those who enjoy hiking or walking through long distances may be able to take a flat path and walk slowly without going downhill. Small children can walk lightly, so it is good to come to family units.

  • 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.
  • This was one of the highlights of our Jeju visit. Lots of greenery and you could feel the fresh air in your lungs. Admittedly the walk isn't that long (maybe an hour or so? We do like to walk at a steady pace) however it's a lovely atmosphere. We were behind a group of older Koreans following some sort of guide. It looked like they would be stopping at a number of trees on the route which might be interesting to some however they were nice enough to insist we bypass as they would be taking their time.
