Welcome to Chungcheongbuk-do

The province’s charms are better appreciated in its smaller towns and three national parks, which are home to an assortment of intriguing and historic Buddhist sites. You can climb the azalea-covered peaks of Sobaek-san, descend into the otherworldly caverns of Gosu Donggul, or simply savour the views along the river and at nearby Chungju-ho. Then there's Guin-sa, a Buddhist temple ensconced in a steep valley, as imposing as the mountain slopes on either side of it.
