  • Here a templestay done yesterday night. Upon arrival we were welcomed, and you also had to fill out a form to the reason for your arrival and got your clothes: a wide pants that you omknoopt and a yellow vest. The templestay I found some. There was more focus on the sport than the religion. So was briefly and quickly explained how you had to bend, but the why was not important and was not explained. It was a question of you knew how it was supposed to. It was also during the meal plenty of rumored, while in the introduction + on site at the show was that you had to eat in silence. Top was that one of the monks loud phoning entered the dining room. The m.a. lessons have the focus to meditate, not on the sport. On me it came as if the religion side issue was, I had expected more of/gehooopt.

  • It's a wonderful experience, especially if you have some knowledge in Buddhism. The daily program includes sitting and walking meditation, Yoga, Sunmudo training, morning and evening chanting services...  more »
  • It's a little hard to get to, since there is no public transportation that come to us directly: the bus stops about 1 Km from the entrance. Then of course there is the inevitable succession of uphills and stairs in the Woods. We wanted to absolutely get there because we knew every afternoon there is a demonstration of Sumodo: I can say that the fatigue was richly rewarded!

More moderately priced hotels lie in the downtown area, notably in Nodong-Dong and Noseo-Dong quarters. Near the train station, you can find inexpensive guesthouses (yeoinsuk), motels, and hostels. Family-oriented mid-range hotels tend to cluster just east from the lake, but the tourist-friendly city has accommodations well distributed throughout.
