It’s very beautiful park, especially in autumn. A lot of hiking trails which are well managed and clean. Avoid weekend if possible, it’s very crowded.

Once again, in Korea where things are really Cold, nearly Winter, but not quite yet winter. The scene was beautiful with natural and artificial 'decoration'. I'm sure Spring would be just as nice.
