NAEJANGSAN


HOW TO GO

#1 KTX 39500/oneway 
to Jeongeup, continue with local bus No. 171, stop at Naejangsan national park
 ( +point : time spend in Naejangsan unlimited -point : super expensive)
#2 Naejangsan's Shuttle bus + Jeonju village ₩10000 / round trip here
 (+point : cheap - point : time spend in naejangsan only around 2 hours)
#3 Join local tour in google ₩30000 / round trip 
( BEST OPTION : time spend in Naejangsan around 5 hours and price also ok)


BEST TIME TO GO
around early november
this all photos took on November 5, 2016 but still around 60% changed color 
( all depends on the weather, so check the foliage schedule on naver )

HOW LONG TIME YOU NEED THERE
#1 FROM PARKING LOT TO ENTRANCE GATE
you can use shuttle bus for free ( around 10minutes ride) but when peak season, queue is like crazy so you can take a walk for 45 minutes and enjoying the view ESPECIALLY THE MARKET
#2 ENTRANCE GATE TO CABLE CAR AND POND
ENTRANCE FEE : ₩3000
you can (again) use shuttle bus but this time you need tpa₩1000 / person or you can do walk around 45 minutes again but this time better because you can take
alot of photos of foliage for this time
#3 TAKE CABLE CAR AND BACK
CABLE CAR FEE : ₩8000
to be honest, i didnt take cable car because time was not enough. but i think because of long queue you need more than 30 minutes for queue + ride 10 minutes + enjoying up view 30 minutes + go back 30 minutes, so total around 1.5 hours to 2 hours.

hope you can imagine how long you need here HAHA

SUPER PLUS POINT
THE MARKET THE MARKET HIHI for me the main thing of this trip not the foliage but this market HAHA lots of restarurant where ahjumma ahjussi eating Pajeon korea's savory pancake and Makgolli korea's rice alcohol drink after hiking. and you can try eat Fried Ginseng, takoyaki, fresh pomegranate juice and many more!! :3
