Muju Ski resort is one of the most sought after destinations in South Korea during winter. It is the largest resort in the central region of South Korea. Situated at the base of majestic Deogyusan mountain, Muju welcomes thousands of vacationers every year. It is a part of ‘Deogyusan Mountain National Park’. The activities around this area are planned in such a way so that the natural beauty of the place remains unaffected.
The resort is around 2-2.5 hr drive from Busan ( almost the same distance if you are coming from Seoul). If you have your own transport that would be a better option. You can explore the place in your own car. You will not face time constraints. Although regular bus services are also available for the resort.
If you are an ardent sports person, you might as well stay at various hotels/motels located in the vicinity to enjoy it to the fullest. At the base of the mountain, there are many Korean restaurants, ski equipment rental shops & other amenities.
Travel Tip: Check for group/family discounts on ski wear and equipment. There are discounts on Samsung Card, KB, Shinhan card
