If you visit Gwangju, you must go to this national park. From the city center, take the bus 54 (there are many others also). A taxi from the center is only about 5 USD to the main entrance. Dozens of very well maintained trails. Lots of Buddhist temples in the park for a break. Before your hike, you can buy... More

Mudeungsan has seen better days. Hiked it when I lived there. Revisited and took the lift. It wasnt really nice the first time. Only gotten worse since. Wouldn't recommend this.

Love this mountain. Many trails to choose from, but I prefer starting from Wonhyosa on the north side of the mountain. There are less people. The Jeungshimsa entrance can get very crowded. Awesome views across Jeollansmdo and Gwangju on a clear day. Come prepared though. Despite its proximity to downtown Gwangju, it is still a very steep 1187m mountain, with... More

This mountain is very big. It's a good place to hike. You will see many people enjoy hiking even adults, kids, teenager, and the elder. Officers there is very nice and can inform us very well so that you can follow their suggestion. There are different level of peak to hike. I'm sure you will see a good view when... More

Mudeungsan Park, accessible several major bus routes from downtown Gwangju (take the #9 from U-Square / Central Bus Terminal), is a beautiful natural park with well-sign-posted trails and distinctive character in every season. Some trails are easier for beginners, though many meander on and then rise sharply at well-maintained stairways. The park gets VERY BUSY starting around 10:30 / 11:00... More

We came of course for the red leaves. It's getting harder and harder to predict the time as the weather gets more and more strange. Thinking to come in early November will catch the last glimpse, but all the red leaves are still there, half falling, which makes the scene much more beautiful. Unfortunately it's raining. But believe me, it's... More

I went to Mudeungsan National Park with my mom, uncle and auntie. We took bus number 9 (red line) at U-Square terminal and stopped at last station. I was so surprised to see a lot of old folks went for hiking. Hiking equipments can be found at the entrance of the park. There were cafes and restaurants as well. The... More
