[KOREA] 괴산문광저수지 GOESAN- MUNGWANGJEOSUJI

Now autumn is on the peak! All trees turn yellow and red on their brightest color. And as look "단풍여행" danpung yohaeng or autumn leaves trip's tag on instagram, i found this hidden beautiful place in Chung-buk provence. Many people asked me where it is and finally i made this post so hope this can give you more recommendation place during autumn ♡

문광저수지
MUNGWANGJEOSUJI

HOW TO GO
Take bus from Dongseoul Terminal (강변 gangbyeon MRT Station exit 4 line 2) to 괴산 goesan
It takes 2 hours drive// Bus interval every 1 hour // ₩10.800
.
And after you arrive at Goesan Bus terminal actually you can take local bus ( but the interval every 2 hours CRAYS RIGHT) so better to take taxi around 15 minutes only around ₩10.000
.
And i suggest you to check bus timetable back to Seoul so you can adjust your time there.

BEST TIME TO GO
these all photos took on 30th october 2017
And when i went there, leaves mostly had falling.
So better come here around 20th~ but then it depends on the weather

Nothing you can see more than a huge lake with beautiful yellow gingko trees and colorful hills around. It can be said as highcost trip since only 1 place to be visited but trust me, if you need healing time, come here and feel the nature. Super love ♡♡
