  • This is totally worth it, even off the beaten track! Enjoy the drive up, and then walk around this beautiful site. Most people will stop at Woljeongsa, but this is a lovely spot to accompany.  more »
  • A beautiful calm temple located close to the mountain's top. Great view. Beautiful old bell from the Shilla period. Ca. 10km walk or drive from the park's entrance. Keep that in mind if you plan to walk. There's a shuttle bus, too.
  • The place is very nice. I traveled from Seoul to Jimbo terminal in bullet train KTX, took cab to bus stop and then took bus to Sangwonsa temple. You have to walk to reach to temple and from there if you want trekking, then you can climb to Birobong peak. There are many other treks, you can get the information near bus stop. The place is crowded with only old age people. Nice, beautiful colored trees during autumn season can be seen here. The atmosphere is very calm.
