Weekends in South Korea are so much fun. There are so many places to visit & loads of activities to do. You are never short of ideas. This time around we placed to planned to explore the beautiful city of Tongyeong. From Gohyeon bus terminal, we took an intercity bus to Tongyeong, the land of Sea.

There are many tourist attractions in Tongyeong. Having to spend just a day in the city, we decided to go for Mireuksan Mountain & Hallyeo Cable Car.Mt. Mireuksan is considered one of the best 100 mountains of Korea.   You can easily spend a full day there hiking & sightseeing Those who are not keen on hiking, like us how could we with kids? can take up the cable car. The place offers breath -taking view of the sea & dense forest, ancient temples. The wildflowers add to the beauty of the place. It is said that in clear weather visitors can see the Tsushima Island (in Japan)

 

Travel Tip: Check the weather forecast for making your plans. A foggy weather or rain can ruin the whole experience.

It is the main tourist attraction of Tongyeong. It is the longest cable car in Korea covering a distance of 2kms. There are 47 cable cars each with a sitting capacity of 8 persons.

Travel Tip: Always carry your own food. You will not get anything up there apart from coffee & Korean food ( don’t bother if you are fond of Korean food :) )

 

Observatory 

The cable car leaves you at the observatory. The view point is at the top floor. There are telescopes installed. You can use them for W 500. But be really quick as the time period for each session is just 1-minute :D.

Check out the view

Mireuksan Mountain Tongyeong

There is a little cafe on the first floor serving coffee & snacks. Some stalls of Korean snacks are also present in case you want to sample Korean food. A little waterfall is built at the corner. Fresh water comes from the mountain. At the base of the fall, there are two statues installed holding a basket over their heads. Visitor throw coins for good fortune.

We don’t believe it yet we tried it nevertheless. It’s fun after all :)

From here the summit of Mt. Mireuksan starts. It is a 15-20 walk through wooden stairs. It might appear easy, but it’s not trust me :D

Travel Tip – The summit is quite challenging. Those who are not physically fit, sick &  elderly people must consider before going for it.

Enjoy your view, experience the beautiful surrounding & make loads of memories.

Travel Tip: Apply loads of sunscreen not less than SPF 50. Sun is really strong up there.

My kids were super excited when they encountered a swarm of butterflies. They were jumping & dancing with excitement. What better company than nature.

Address 

Bongpyeong-dong, Tongyeong-si, Gyeongsangnam-do

 

How to get there 

It is well connected with the bus from all the cities. You will have to reach the Tongyeong bus terminal. From the terminal, you can either take up another bus or hire a taxi. Take the local city bus no. 20 or 21. You have to get off at Bongpyeong-dong Yonghwasa.  We preferred a taxi as it drops you straight at the entry point. With kids, it’s better to avoid excessive walking. They get tired & you will have to carry them along with other luggage you are already carrying :D.

 

Facilities available 

1. Cable car

2. Cafe serving coffee & snacks ( most of them are sweet )

3. Washrooms

4. Beverage vending machine
