No words can describe how incredible this place is. Wolmyeongdong is amazing not just because of its beautiful natural scenery, but also because of the intense emotions of happiness and peace that it invokes in you. It is a place of healing; a place of physical and spiritual rejuvenation.
God truly rests in this place - You can feel Him the trees, the rocks, the water, the mountain cliffs... everywhere you go and look, He is there. And it is SUCH an exhilarating experience to feel Him so closely to you.
Things to do (among others):
- hiking! (so many trails to choose from, from beginner to advanced)
- swim in the lake (summer only)
- watch the sunrise at Mt. Gamran
- enjoy a delicious Korean pancake while resting near a boulder
- escape from the heat and cold in one of the natural caves
- drink from the medicinal spring
- pick and eat persimmons (seasonal)
- skiing (winter only)

Go visit Wolmyeongdong - regardless of whether you have a relationship with God or not. Go there by yourself, or with your family and friends. Go there to recharge, heal or just to immerse in nature. You will feel all your anxieties and worries melt away and be happier and more peaceful than you've ever felt.

Daedunsan Natural Recreation Forest

Reviewed By mr_nor

Mount Daedunsan is a natural reserve that had kept quite a low profile for all these years. But once you set your foot to the place, you cant help but admire and wonder on the creation of the world where you can view the Mountains at a magnificient 180 degrees view. The journey to reach the peak can be tiresome for the weak and so not recommended for the elderly. But , if you are young and fit, do get your gears and climb up the 1 km steep staircase to reach to the top. The temperature can drop to about -4 degrees so do put on your heat tech gears.

Daejeon O-World

Reviewed By HongseonJeong - Daejeon, South Korea

O-world is a small theme park located in south of Daejeon, including zoo(Not big, but enough space to walk around 1~2 hours). It's very easy to get there, because it's close to city-center. I know, it's smaller than like Lotte-world in Seoul or Seoul-land in Seoul, but this place is for local citizens. Taking a day on holiday or weekends, this place will 'cure' you. One more, it costs about $10 to just enter(including park and zoo), $25 including every service. It has a couple of restaurants inside, but tastes bad and expensive. Don't forget to bring a picnic-basket!

Garden of Sky

This place was consist of lake and additional facilities. There was operating sauna, botanical garden, restaurant, cafe, performance arena and trail. The people who lived around this area visited this attraction in meal time or weekend, I think. The trail with lake was very good, and additional facilities was not bad. The parking area was wide. There was Lake park with good view and facilities.

World Heritage Network

We specialize in arranging adventure day tour to trek and explore South Korea’s most famous & most beautiful mountain, Daedunsan Mountain. Daedunsan Mountain is especially beautiful in the fall when its rock peaks are surrounded by the autumnal tints of turning leaves.

Reviewed By audreymullen800 - Sydney, Australia

We took up a day tour to trek Daedunsan Provincial Park from World Heritage Network. The weather was crisp and cool, and though the scenery was a little subdued, it was still great to be outdoors again after a long, bitter winter. Though the trail was very steep, we made pretty decent time to the (almost) top. The main attractions on Daedunsan are the suspension bridge that goes from one small peak to the next, as well as a rickety tower of "floating" stairs. Though we braved both, the bridge was especially exhilarating. After we noodled around at the top and took a million pictures, we headed to the gondola, which took us back down the mountain. Because this is Korea, and literally everything is over-the-top cute, the gondolas had names and faces. Once at the bottom we stopped for some much needed pajeon and mageolli. Pajeon is a savory Korean pancake that is usually made with green onions and various seafood and then fried in oil. Mageolli is a creamy rice wine that is low in alcohol content, and extremely delicious. Yum! As you might be able to tell the weather was a little bleak - Is it fog? Is it smog? No one knows for sure! Despite that fact, the hike was great exercise and a lot of fun. I would absolutely recommend World Heritage Network to those who wish to trek this mountain especially to anyone living in or around Daejeon. I hope to return to this mountain during the fall, and will hopefully do some more hiking soon.
