When you visit Gwangju, if you ask me, the one place they really have to go to is Jisan recreation area in Mudeungsan National Park. lt's well worth a visit because of showing a panoramic view of Gwangju. What's more, you can enjoy active activities as Lift and Monorail which can feel the coolness and mystery. But, if you're afraid of heights, you can feel a little scared because lift climbs Mudeungsan Mountain, which is more than 1,000 meters above sea level. But don't be afraid and enjoy the scenery of Gwangju because it's operating safely. You'll feel hollow while you're enjoying it. Let's have fun together.
(여러분들이 광주를 방문할 예정일 때, 저에게 묻는다면, 꼭 가야할 곳은 무등산 국립공원에 있는 지산 유원지입니다. 그곳은 광주의 전경을 볼 수 있는 곳이기 때문에 방문할 가치가 있습니다. 게다가 여러분들은 시원함과 신비스러움을 느낄 수 있는 리프트와 모노레일 같은 액티비티한 활동을 즐길 수 있습니다. 하지만 여러분이 고소공포증이 있다면 리프트는 해발 1000m가 넘는 무등산을 올라가기 때문에 약간의 무서움을 느낄 수 있습니다. 하지만 그것은 안전하게 운영하고 있기 때문에 너무 무서워 하지 말고 광주의 전경을 즐기세요. 여러분들은 그것을 즐길 때 속이 뻥 뚫린 기분을 느낄 수 있을 것 입니다. 같이 즐겨봅시다.)

I was all over the map (literally) until I realized the dotted lines are the park boundaries and the clear lines are the paths. I made a 3 hour hike into a thoroughly enjoyable 7 hour hike!

We took a reasonably strenuous round trip walk through the park. It was a great way to experience a little taste of Korea's extensive forest areas. We were driven to the park entrance by local friends and a cheery park ranger gave us a park map before we started our walk. The forest was diverse and very attractive and we got good views back to the city of Gwangju from the highpoint of our walk. The trails were reasonably well signposted but only in Korean..
We travelled back into Gwangju by bus which only took us about 15 minutes. It was a free ride, as the driver probably thought that was easier than trying to explain the ticketing system to us non Koreans!

Visited with two young kids so only hiked maybe a third of the way up but we had a great time. Park rangers were extremely friendly and one spoke amazing English and was one of the nicest Koreans we met. Trails are well marked and they have an English map at the info stations.

Sujata afterward for a cheap, all-you-can-eat Buddhist temple food vegan meal IS A MUST!! Not for the casual stroller or those with bad knees! Up up up you will go, continuously, to see lovely views at many lookout points. Great shopping at the base of the mountain. The temple is breathtaking!

We went up the mountain by bus and hiked down, it was quite simple and very nice. There were a lot of difficulty level options on the mountain.

Love the place. Worth every bit of the travelling to this place during Autumn. We did not even manage to hike up to far, it was already beautiful. Clean and beautiful.

There are various routes you can choose for the climb up and you really don't need to get to the top because there is beauty every step of the way. Especially in Autumn, it is fabulous. Definitely worth spending a day there.

Drove up Mudeungsan National Park for an early morning hike. The gradual slope makes it an easy climb for all. At the base of the mountain is Jeungsimsa Temple, a car park and terminus for bus No. 9 from Gwangju Bus Terminal (U-Square Terminal). Check-in at the ranger station for maps (English and Chinese available) and recommendations of walking trails. Certainly not as crowded as the more popular Naejangsan yet a great hike to enjoy the autumn foliage at a leisurely pace. The maple tunnels are at its full glory when the trees turn a hue of red, deep yellow and orange for a breathtaking canopy of colourful autumn beauty. The carpet of fallen leaves is also a magical and romantic sight to behold. Very refreshing and crisp air, good trails and friendly local hikers. Best in late October and early November.

I was lived next to this national park since G1, I am strongly recommend this place for hikers who wants to enjoy few different course. There are several ways to climb up to top of the mountain. I had tried all types of them with my family every weekend. This place is the best place for hike with your family. During the Summer, it is hot and humid but you could enjoy it's good views and some flowers with trees. During the Winter, it is cold and hard to hike, but you could see those top view of Gwang-ju from top of the mountain.
I am strongly recommend this place for family and family with young children to teens.
