Seocho Tourist Information Center.
I’m going to introduce you
Cheonggyesan where you can take a rest in Seocho-gu
for the spring.
When you get out of the exit 2
of Cheonggyesan Station
there is the entrance to Cheonggyesan Mountain.
As soon as you get out of the exit 2 of Cheonggyesan Station
there are a lot of rape blossoms.
Jeju island is popular for the rape blossoms.
If you don’t have a time to go to Jeju island
Welcome to visit this place
where you can enjoy a lot of rape blossoms.
When you get out of the exit 2 of Cheonggyesan Station
Just keep going forward.
There are some sign.
You can easily arrive at Cheonggyesan.
Last year I went to Cheonggyesan in Seocho-gu
for seeing the autumn foliage.
This year I come to Cheonggyesan in Seocho-gu again
for enjoying the spring’s flowers.
This is a flower called azalea.
When I arrivee at Cheonggyesan’s entrance
Azaleas were in full bloom all over the bank.
There are two course.
First one is the Maebong (582m) course.
Second one is the Oknyeobong (375m) course.
Last year I introduced
about the Maebong (582m) course.
So this year I will introduce
about the Oknyeobong (375m) course.
Now I’m telling you
how to climb up to the Oknyeobong (375m).
Before climbing up,
you should prepare the frozen water in case.
While climbing up
you can often see the sign.
This direction for The Maebong (582m)
That direction for the Oknyeobong
You can see that sign while climbing up.
You can see many flowers
and green trees in the spring season.
Like this picture.
While climbing up the Cheonggyesan in Seocho-gu
the sign indicate you where you are.
Never you get lost in the Cheonggyesan.
In my opinion based on the experience
Oknyeobong (375m) course is
much easier than the Maebong (582m) course.
the reason why is that Oknyeobong (375m) course
doesn’t have a lot of steep slope compared to the Maebong (582m) course.
That sign says that
the Maebong (582m) course takes about two hours
and Oknyeobong (375m) course takes about an hour.
In my opinion,
Oknyeobong (375m) course takes about tow hours and half with a rest time.
Why are we climbing up ?
The answer is maybe taking a rest.
You don’t need to hurry up for climbing.
Just keep your speed.
Sometimes you take a rest.
While going to Oknyeobong
there is the mineral water.
