  • An awesome hike where me and my friend found a restaurant on the way that had a canopy for a cieling (amazing leek pancakes). At the end of the hike you'll find an astounding view as well as Buddhas carved into the wall. Its a world heritage site worth trekking to, and i couldn't believe that many Koreans living in the area didn't know it existed. Anywhere you go in Korea = take toilet paper with you! Almost never seen toilet paper in public toilets.
  • The temple is nice, but is REALLY hard to reach: either you go through a 4km hiking trail or up 2km from the subway station. Go prepared, there is barely any vending machine or places to get water on the way.
