#Hiking in Korea  

#Travel in Korea  

Dear friends !

We will take you to Mt,Gamaksan, the longest suspension bridge and the closest mountain to the DMZ, view to North Korea territory and Herb Island for its romantic beautiful illumination at night !

We will go joined hiking  with Warrant Kim's Group, and I will mainly take charge of hiking and will take more care of people who sign-in Indigo Hill.  

===♥ Introduction ♥=== 

♣ Gamak-san is a mountain of great prominence. Rising dramatically from the southern plain of the Imjin River right next to DMZ area, its sharp rocky summit watches north over the DMZ, and allows for probably the best available mountain views into North Korea from western Gyeonggi-do.

On a clear day one can trace the mountains of the north stretching toward the city of Gaeseong (free trading city of South Korea and North Korea), among waves of blue ridge folding into the little-known horizon.

This has led to Gamak-san being coined 'Closest mountain to the DMZ', which is not strictly true and draws a large number of its visitors for this reason.


Due to this reason, even the temple on this mountain has a wishing pagoda of peaceful unification and the top of mountain has the statue of The Holy Mother Mary

Gamak-san’s dominance over the landscape is reflected in the 'ak' of its name, suggesting prominence and presence. It's the 5 most beautiful rocky mountain in Gyeonggi-do, and also getting popular for its longest suspension bridge 150 meter.

After hiking on this mountain, we will drop by "Pocheon Herb Island" which is boasting off the beauty of illumination of the garden at night!

Herb Island focuses on growing Mediterranean herbs. The Herb Indoor Botanical Garden offers over 180 different herbs while the Outdoor Botanical Garden showcases a dazzling array of herbs surrounded by nature. Additional attractions include the Herb Museum, Living & Herb Exhibition Hall, Herb Restaurant, Herb Barbecue Restaurant, a café, a bakery, a gift shop, Aroma Therapy Center, Venetia Village, Herb Studio (do-it-yourself crafting), Mini Zoo and an outdoor performance hall.
