Itinerary description

|
Show original
The round trip road is 6.5 km. The road is easy, but although the slope begins loose, then it becomes steeper, with many stairs and the final part is more difficult and you have to take some chains to climb. Along the way we meet groups of Koreans, and we even have a party with dances with them. There are not many views, only at the end when you reach the waterfalls area with some pavilions. The walk is beautiful, but the one in Kumgangsan is better, in any case it is interesting. We arrive at the Sangwon Buddhist hermitage that is at the top and then we return along the same path. The views from the top are beautiful. The road without stops takes 2 h 15 min, but with stops it takes 3 h 15 min.
