This attraction involves lots of walking, hiking and climbing up and going down stairs...if you're up to the challenge, there's a good site of the Hanok Village from here...

A little hike up and away from the Jeonju Hanok Village, you will be rewarded with the nice view over the traditional house dotted downhill.

A short walk leads you to the top of the hill with nice views of the village. It doesn't take long and is fairly easy. Night time allows for some pretty views! Seemed very safe even at night!

We visited Omokdae and Imokdae recently and learned the story behind these two structures. It was interesting to see how each of these came to be. They help reflect a part of the very interesting history of Korea. Next to these attractions are signage that explains, in English, why these structures exist. Take a few minutes while you're in Jeonju... More

We went hiking around the area and the climbing was straight up. We got some good views and the exercise was good. It was difficult (without reading Korean) to follow the maps (and a bit frustrating).

You have to walk some stairs up to the Omokdae but once you reach the peak, all the hard work is worth-ed it. You can watch the whole hanok village from here which is really pretty. Imokdae is the other side from Omokdae, Just ask around if you can't find it. People here are really friendly.

We hiked up Omokdae and from the hill you can view the awesome sight of Jeonju Hanok Village below. Definitely worth it. At Omokdae there is a really nice pavilion. Take a rest and enjoy the scenery there. As for Imokdae, it was rather lackluster. Forgettable. Can be skipped.
