Climbing In Korea
IT'S TIME TO PLAY!
Join us a national holiday(Wed) to enjoy beautiful Gangwondo on a relaxing holiday followed by an explorative canoeing paddle on the lake!!
TIME TO COOL OFF with a nice relaxing canoe trip in a jewel-like lake.
Sounds amazing right? One more thing.. FOOD! We plan to visit and take part in the local cuisine at a very famous and delicious Chuncheon Dakgalbi restaurant which has invited us for dinner! See full details below for further descriptions.
Let's go canoeing!!!
Yes! What a great way to make those fun times happen by joining us on national holiday to enjoy the beautiful Chuncheon lakes on a relaxing and fun holiday trip, canoeing and dining with friends.
What's the plan?
Here's the plan! First, get yourself to Namchuncheon stn.
Next, hustle for a seat on the shuttle bus that will take us to our destination and chat with your friends about what a great holiday today is going to be because you are going canoeing with CIK!
When you arrive, get excited as you spot the canoes waiting for you and your friends, rocking gently on the beautiful and tranquil lakes of Chuncheon, beckoning you to climb in and take them on a tour around the lakes.
Once in your canoe, set sail for fun and relaxation! with 2-3 hours of canoeing time that will take you through the islands of Chuncheon lakes.
During your time canoeing, take a break, drink a hot beverage, enjoy some snacks, take in the scenery, visit an animation museum. What! Wait! Hold on! 'animation museum'??? That's right. And why not? There's no reason an animation museum should not be located at Chuncheon lakes for you to take an interesting and insightful stroll around.
Okay, You're still with me? good. I can hear a rumbling in your belly. I reckon it's time to get ourselves to a delicious dakgalbi restaurant nearby and wind down the trip with great food and chat with your CIK friends.
Finally. I know you won't want to leave, but, alas, all good things must come to an end and it's time for you to head back to your cozy warm home and tuck yourself into bed to dream about the great day you just had. Ready for work on Thursday...
