Soak in the sun on Seonunsan!!

Hello CIK members!!

It's Spring!! It is time to soak in the panoramic wonders of Seonunsan Provincial Park. This mountain is known for its beautiful natural plant life  such as camellia, maple trees and cluster-amaryllis all setteled around fantastically shaped stones. Seonunsan consists of low hills that stand about 400m above sea level. This mountain, although not so high in altitude, is well known for its eye catching rock formations. Nature lovers will agree, this mountain is a must see in Korea! Don't miss your chance to walk through the wonderful flowers and take in the excellent scenery.

This will be an easy hike that should take around 4 hours to cross from one side to the other. It will take about 3 1/2 hours to get there by bus from Seoul. At the end of our hike we will be well rewarded with a one thousand year old Seonunsa(temple) and the 500-year old camellia forest flouring during mid April !!

After the hike, we will get a chance to walk through The Green Barley Field(Chungbori) nearby .Walking in the vast and beautiful barley field, we can take some time to relax and enjoy at our leisure, just let the beautiful landscape be your guide!!

Also, we can have various experiences including walking in the barley field, making traditional food with barley, making barley flute and folk play such as walking on a rope, tuho and Korean jumping and taste barley-based boiled rice, rice cake, traditional snack and pepper paste and enjoy various cultural performances and traditional performances.

This will surely be a lot of fun and it is also a great chance to see the beautiful scenery. It will be a fantastic day! So come and join us!
