Sunchang & Damyang

Posted by cocoinkorea on November 14, 2010

This past weekend I went to Sunchang (Jeollabuk-Do Province) and Damyang (Jeollanam-Do Province) to view the beautiful nature and see the wonderful sights that Korea has to offer in the fall.

The first stop on the trip was to Mt. Gangcheon, where we saw the leaves changing colors. There was a beautiful array of leaves that varied from green to orange to a bright red. Mt. Gangcheon is a very popular mountain where hundreds of people flock to in order to view the scenery. When one first enters the park, there is a beautiful natural waterfall called Byungpung. It is one of the many waterfalls that can be found on the mountain and it is absolutely breathtaking. Walking a little further into the mountain, one can view the Suspension Bridge, which hangs at 50m above the ground. I did not make the trek up the mountain, but I ended my journey at the Suspension Bridge, which is about a 30-40 minute walk into the mountain.

The next stop on the trip was to the Bamboo Forest in Damyang. This was my first trip to a forest filled with bamboo trees. The air surrounding me in the forest was cool and refreshing. The bamboo trees towered high into the sky shading me from all sunlight. The ground was cool and damp. It was a nice place to take a walk and enjoy the beauty of nature. 

(Dinner.. Yum)


The night finished off with a lovely traditional Korean meal… yum 🙂
