Hi all ~!

ganghwado island is the 5th largest island and well known for the historical remains from all over the ages,from stone-age, bronze-age "Dolmen" is the icon of this island and is a UNESCO world heritage. and fortress,palaces, 100 years ago temple-style church still serving on weekends and DMZ area to look North Korea.

In spring, surprisingly the pink Azelea flower blossoms in Goryo mountain and it makes a stunning sceneries all of sudden! and the color of pink here is the most colorful than any other mountains!

The Scenery draw lots of hikers and tourist from all over korea for its amazing beauty.The hiking to the Azelea fields is only 1.5~2 hour leisurely walk to the top and the sceneries is great with the view of ocean!

And 1,000years ago, temporarily the capital of korea was there and the island is kind of gateway to trade with other countries for long time, there is a church builted like korean traditional house.In somewhat likes like temple.

Ganghwado is the only island that the DMZ does not exist and the Han river itself is a role of DMZ and you can see the North Korea land on your eyes from the observatory!

So,It will be a exciting trip with full of interesting and beautiful sceneries!

It should be great to feel the spring and pleasant full excursion!

Spread the word~! Don't miss it!
