If you enjoy mountains and hiking, then Korea will probably suit you. Even though my apartment is in the middle of downtown Cheonan, I can walk a short distance past the highway and busy intersections to Taejosan. There are also awesome people in my apartment building that enjoy being in nature.
The views were the best part of the hike.
I think we walked about 6 miles. The majority was uphill, and towards the end there was a lot of uneven land going downhill but fortunately no ankles were rolled.
And there were little Buddha rock carvings hiding in between the trees.
And we were rewarded with Gakwonsa Temple at the end. Buddha’s birthday is coming up, hence the pretty lanterns.
Next time I’ll have to try another trail, before it gets deathly humid outside.
