Climbing In Korea
Let`s go to trek and bike along a gorgeous lake and coastal trail in Gangneung !!
We are planning a special trip for 1 night and 2 days to Gangneung. We will bike the trail which is a human and nature-friendly course.
You can enjoy Geumgang pine trees, the Gyeongpoho Lagoon (which also goes by the name "Lake of Mirror") and visit to Heo Nanseolheon Memorial Park, The Gangneung Local Confucian House, The Ojukheon House etc.
This will be a fun trip combining trekking and bike riding along a route with pine trees, The Gyeongpoho lake and a coastal trail. Because CIK is such a wonderful group we have been personally invited by the Korea Tourism Organization to experience the sights of Gangneung by biking and trekking. Also,we will be staying in a traditional Ondol style pension with 2-4 persons in each room.
