  • It looks like a decent place for a visit every once in a while after time. The scenery is great, as you can very well feel free to climb the trail! Sometimes it is useful to a lot of restaurants around meals

  • The entrance is easy to reach by bus, from that point, you can visit different temples and also starts an extensive network of hiking routes. The hiking trails are conditional might not be easy, but very technical mountain climbing is not. From the various tops you have a wonderful view of other mountains and on the city of Gwangju. In the mountains you can hear nothing of the city, but only singing birds and running water, very soothing and a must to go! The road to the temples is wheelchair friendly, the rest of the routes are not.
