ALL TRIPS AT: 

https://www.facebook....




Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a giant water park that uses hot water for their entire facilities for the winter? We know of such a place. For one day we won’t know it’s winter. Water slides and all kinds of pools and waterfalls and sauna and spa facilities. And rather than getting early up at dawn to go on the trip, let’s leave in the evening and hike a small mountain in the morning. A great way to get in shape and take in the beauty of nature. The mountain has an amazing suspension bridge right above a lake and a small park with interesting totem poles we can finish the hike at.




The waters used by this resort come from the 600-year-old De

oksan Hot Springs. These waters are known for being good to skin and relieving muscular pains, as well as good for skin rejuvenation. So not only is this spa fun and relaxing with the water at 49C degrees, but it also comes with actual health benefits! A great way to spend a cold winter’s day! 


RESOM SPA CASTLE HOT SPRING WATER PARK
This huge spa has many different kinds of water activities that has 49C hot spring water used on their entire water park facilities to make it the ideal fun destination during winter.
There are 3 kinds of hot water slides. Two kinds of Tube Slides and one high speed water slide. 
Also there is Torrent River wave pool that is similar to a river with large water waves and hot water waterfalls. In addition you can also find Japanese Hinoki hot tubs and Korean style hot tub with Korean rice liquor which provides health benefits as well as foot pressure massage pool. Also there is a Grotto (Cave) Bath and an Aqua Bar where you can have drinks and snacks. 
Also, there are various things indoors to explore. There’s a big pool with 10 different jet spots covering different areas of your body. You can also find a neon-lighted waterfall, sun tan zone, foot spa with jets to massage your feet, and thai massage as well a private pool which you can use for 1 hour with extra charge. Also there is Kayakum Pool which plays Korean traditional music as well as Jazz Pool which plays Jazz Music and a Classic Pool which plays Classic music. There is also Korean clay hot sauna room (황토) as well as Oxygen Room and other several other sauna rooms like dry sauna and wet sauna and aroma wet sauna and a jjimjilbang as well as pools like Dr Fish pool. In addition, there are different massage treatments to choose from, with European and Asian interior to fit the theme.


CHILGAPSAN MOUNTAIN
Located in the South Chungcheong Province, Chilgapsan is a fun and not overly difficult mountain to hike with an elevation of 561 meters. The mountain comprises of a lavish forest as well as several peaks and valleys, with lakes on both sides. An especially nice points of visiting the Chilgapsan Provincial Park are crossing the Cheonjangho Lake on the suspension bridge and the totem pole park at the base of the mountain on the opposite side from the lake. The song made of the mountain is famous, too! 
If you are not much of a hiker you could stay on the bus and enter the mountain from the end point so you can turn around at any time.


JANGSEUNG PARK
Right at the base of the Chilgapsan mountain is this largest preservation area for the ancient wooden or stone totem poles, known as jangseungs, which have usually been placed by the entrance of a village in the old times to scare off evil spirits. Some of the tallest jangseungs in all of Korea are located in this park as well as replicas of indigenous totem poles from all over the world. 


LUNCH
We will have lunch at a Korean restaurant right by the spa. On the menu they have grilled pork, other kinds of pork dishes, and a delicious duck dish, but the real kicker is their lunch offering of ssambab (쌈밥, rice and lots of vegetables with a type of meat) for just 6,500won! It’s a very healthy option, and you’ll also love its taste! 


JJIMJILBANG OR MOTEL
Since we depart at night to skip the traffic and the pain of having to wake up even as early as 4 or 5am, we get to crash a few hours at a jjimjilbang or a motel prior to starting the hike. Jjimjilbang is the cheaper option, with various saunas and other similar facilities to choose to use from. Meanwhile motel is the more comfortable option with private showers, but comes with a larger cost.
