In Korea, over 70% of the land is mountainous with the eastern regions consisting of mainly rugged mountain ranges and deep valleys. It's not surprising if there are many people enjoy hiking in the foothills and mountains.
One of the most famous mountains that I've climbed was the Mt. Mudeung with 1,186.8 meters high. Located at Iseo-myeon, Hwasun-eup, Hwasun-gun; Dong-gu and Buk-gu in Gwangju; and Nam-myeon in Damyang-gun. Mt. Mudeung has plenty of tourist attractions. The mountain is not sharp to climb so don't be surprise even if you meet the crowd who want to enjoy its scenic beauty on weekend. Most of them usually go up in casual wear.
Would you believe that there's also playground on top of the mountain? This is on top of the mountain and the whole family are now enjoying the nature and beauty of Mt. Mudeung.
You can also take a walk with this flat area on top. There are some benches to relax when you're tired. Or you can sit down and see the wonderful view.
Here's what you can see from the benches.
No need to worry if got thirsty from climbing up the high mountain because there's spring that can obey your thirst. It's cool and taste good. Some are carrying big gallons and get much water from it because they believe that it's good for our health.
There are also resthouses on top of the mountain which is always full of tourists eating and drinking soju (korean alcohol).
