  • A great hike in the heart of the mountains but pay ATTENTION to the signs! OUR advice: By hiking to the departure of Samleung (or Samneug according to Scripture), it must follow the Geumobong (Peak) then, once arrived at the peak (after ~ 1 hour walk), it must always follow Yongjangmaeul (village), in order to reach the parking lot which is located 2 stops of bus from starting. For hiking, it takes 4 hours to deal with a big climb up to the peak and a good run at the end of the course. Provide water and good shoes. This is a very beautiful ballad in the heart of the forest (refreshing), with magnificent points of view. Plan a picnic for the day :)

Where to stay in Gyeongju

With 6 million tourists per year, Gyeongju offers a wide range of accommodations. The area around the Bomun Lake resort has several luxury hotels catering to the needs of Korean tour groups. 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.
