Welcome to Songnisan National Park
With forested mountains and rocky granite outcrops, plunging valleys and towering peaks, Songnisan National Park (속리산국립공원) spectacularly ranges across one of central Korea’s finest scenic areas. The area is naturally superb hiking territory, but visitors should stop by the arresting sight of the Buddhist temple complex of Beopju-sa and its superb five-storey wooden pagoda. Spring – with its candy-floss cherry blossoms – and the crisp bronzes of autumn are great times to visit. Check with the tourist information centre about hiking routes and the numerous restricted areas.
