♣ tranquil seaside escape.Tongyeong,Italian port city of Naples.
The scenery made up of many islands spread out on the ocean and the buildings of varying heights located along the port often elicit a flattering comparison to the beautiful Italian port city of Naples. Perhaps because Tongyeong is so beautiful, the city has produced many historical and literary figures.
♣ Hallyeosudo Viewing Ropeway or Rouge (optional, not included)
* Rouge is now open , first time in korea! 500meter, 3 times, 16,000 won
Located on Mireuksan Mountain, one of Korea’s top 100 mountains, Hallyeosudo Viewing Ropeway is the only dual-cable automatic circulating gondola system in Korea. At 1,975 meters long, it is the longest tourist ropeway in the nation. The ropeway is made up of 47 gondolas and one freight unit. Traveling at an average of 4m/sec, it takes approximately 9 minutes to reach the summit station from the ground station.
From the top of Mireuksan Mountain, one can see the historical venue for the Great Battle of Hansan below and even see as far Hallyeohaesang National Park (from Hansando Island to Yeosu), Japan’s Daemado Island, Jirisan National Park’s Cheonwangbong Peak, and Dolsando Island.
♣ Gangguan (강구안) Harbor
Most of the picturesque sights are in and around, a pretty harbour just made for sunset strolls. Visiting Tongyeong’s truly spectacular sights – any one of the 190 or so islands dotting the coastline
♣ Dongpirang Wall Painting Village
Dongpirang Village, meaning “cliff in the east,” features colorful wall paintings, which were created to help save the village from being demolished. The walls have since become a popular tourist attraction. Dongpirang is also a must-visit place for those coming to Tongyeong, as it was featured in Korean dramas No Such Thing as Nice Guys (2012, KBS drama) starring Song Joong-ki and Moon Chae-won and Padam Padam… The Sound of His and Her Heartbeats (2011-2012 JTBC drama) starring Jung Woo-sung and Han Ji-min. The path to the village summit is a steep hill, but it only takes about five to ten minutes on foot. The summit has an incredible view of Tongyeong, including Mireuksan Mountain and Gangguan Port.
♣ HIking Information
The hiking will be challenging, but if you have ever hiked in Korea, or if you are able to walk for an hour without stopping then, you can definitely give it your all and make it to the top!!
We will see layers of mountains and a sea of clouds touching the sunrise!
Then, we will hike down to the temple or shelter to enjoy more autumn weather. Even though we can feel Autumn’s crispy chilly weather, it will still be warm when it’s sunny in the afternoon.It may feel like two different seasons in the same day!
It will be very peaceful at the highest temple in Korea and we will have a great view. It will be the most natural way to enjoy the temple, we won’t stay long but we will enjoy the full ambiance of the temple.
Or we can go to the shelter where we can enjoy cooking, drinking, chatting with friends!
Then, we will go down to the starting point of the hiking where we can get some more fresh meals. Pajeon and the local Makgeolri will be a well-deserved lunch!
