Introduction


The source of Yongchu Falls, Mount Yeoninsan (연인산) stands at 1,068 meters
above sea level and features soft terrain and beautiful scenery. Local folklore
has it that those coming to the mountain wishing for true love will have their
dreams come true.


The soil of Mount Yeoninsan is fertile, offering a
great natural environment for a variety of flowers and trees. Numerous types of
wild flowers thrive from early spring to late autumn. The trail connecting Mount

Yeoninsan with mounts Myeongjisan, Cheonggyesan, and Gwimokbong remains
relatively unspoiled by human influence: cooking and camping in the area is
strictly forbidden. All the mountains in the trail are over 1,000 meters high. A
defining feature of Mount Yeoninsan is the royal azaleas that bloom in late May.


The County of Gapyeong celebrates the royal azalea by hosting the Mount
Yeoninsan (Natural Ecology) Festival in May of each year.


Also ideal for
hiking, Mount Yeoninsan offers a number of trails: one starts from Buk-myeon in
Baekdun-ri, one from Mail-ri, and one from Yongchu Valley. With a minimum of
climbing, hikers can take in a variety of scenic views, ranging from the bloom
of the royal azaleas in the spring to the beauty of the changing leaves in the
fall.

    Hi, I am very excited to join you this weekend! I will have two friends coming with me. Should we just bring the fee or transfer the money to an account?

    The Subway Station,Gangnamgucheong's number is 730. You can't miss it . Exit #1 outside. On coming out , you can easily find KFC on the right side ( 10m from the exit #1). We will meet in front of KFC at 9:00

    Dear Friends, I and Richard are going to go there by cars, if attendees are not over 10 guys. In that case , the meeting place will be changed to Subway Line 7. The station is Gangnamgucheong. I'll check the station number this weekend.

      If we would, I will donate Gasoline :)

      Thank for your kindness, but it is quite natural to charge 5000 krw for transportation. " Free" is not good at any time
