“Great hike or just for enjoying beautiful nature”

Gyeryongsan National Park
Ranked #4 of 20 things to do in Gongju
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 March 2013

I highly recommend visitor to Daejeon area to visit Gyeryongsan National Park. There are many good hiking tracks in Korea, but in my opinion this park is among the best (for 1 day trips). If you like hiking, there are several peaks one may visit, a good option is to hike from Donghaksa to Gapsa - it'll take about 4-5 hours if you're in decent shape. However, be aware that the path can be a bit rough and you should be in decent shape for it, but if you decide it's too tough, you can always turn back.

The park is also good if you just want to have a day outside the noise of Korean cities. Bring a book and a blanket or get your feet wet in the many small streams in the area. The park also has several nice temples (albeit small).

I highly recommend going there on weekdays as you will have the place almost to yourself.

Entrance fee is 2000 won/adult.

My wife and I did the walk from Donghaksa to Gapsa. Just a note of caution. This is a serious hike, it's not just a stroll in the park. You will need above-average fitness, and proper hiking gear (we only had sneakers) It's only about a 5 km walk, we did it in 4.5 hours. It is steep, uneven and quite difficult. We saw a number of injured hikers being helicoptered out. Most enjoyable, though.

I hiked from Gapsa temple to Donghaksa temple. Gapsa is easily accesible from Gongju and then from Donghaksa I took a bus to Daejeon, went to the hot springs there and then returned to Gongju. The temples themselves are also nice and the hike is only a few hours and has nice views at certain points.
