Bijarim Forest Reviews
마침 비오는 날 방문했는데, 비내리는 숲향을 맡고 싶어서 갔지만 비가 내리기 시작한 즈음에 가서 그런지 제대로된 향은 맡지 못했다. 식사하고 한 번 둘러볼만한 곳은 되지만 입장료가 있어서 ㅎㅎ 다시 갈까 싶다! more »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!
우선 연세가 드신 분들은 산행을 하거나 긴 거리를 걷는 것이 무리가 될 수도 있는데 길도 평탄하고 오르막길 내리막길 없이 천천히 걸으면서 주위를 감상하시 좋다. 어린아이들도 가볍게 걸을 수 있으니 가족 단위로 오기좋다. more »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.
