  • I recommend to anyone who loves climbing. The view from the top is magnificent this time and the two walk on this mountain is a pure pleasure. On your way to the top is very a lot of interesting places to visit. And almost at the very top you can relax in a beautiful cottage:)

  • Gyeongju National Park, also known as Namsan is a mountain South of the city and is a very beautiful place that lends itself well to a wonderful walk "exploratory". You will find temples, pagodas, many stone Buddha and even Royal tombs and ruins of forts and palaces. Take a full day, and don't underestimate the place as we were doing ourselves. The tourist office will provide you with a detailed map. It's an attraction without schedules and costs.
