If you are an adventure seeker, here's a program you should never miss. Do you know that 70% of the Korean Peninsula is mountainous?
The quintessential leisure activity in Korea is hiking. It’s because of the optimal natural environment that can restore daily vitality by interacting with nature through visiting 18 mountain national parks. Famous temples are located inside the national park, so you can hike and visit temples, which is why the national park is full of visitors throughout the four seasons.
After completing a two-day temple stay at Beopjusa Buddhist temple on Mt. Songni, you can hike Mt. Jiri, nicknamed “Mt. Mother”, feeling its spirit and warmth.
The program’s entire itinerary is to travel on your own using public transportation. But, don’t worry. We provide all the traveling tips. And at any time, our friendly staff is waiting to respond to your requests for assistance.
