Ready to Get Lost?

Try going to Namsan and enjoy its beauty. But please be warned that you could easily get lost...I did go on my own and got lost several times ;0).

Most locals do not know how to speak English so it was really a big challenge for me to locate the attractions from my hand-drawn map. The feeling of uncertainty will leave you feeling nervous and excited at the same time.

Trying to look for the nice remote places will also give you a chance to interact with the locals which for me is very unforgettable. The people of Gyeongju are sooooo nice and I hope I could get back there soon.

If you are short on time (like I was), you can visit these attractions in a halfday tour....give or take some hours for times that you get lots :0):

Onyong Hermitage
Deer Farm
Bomisa Temple
Seochulji Pond
Twin Pagoda

Note: It took me 6 hours to see the first 4 attractions. I miss the Twin Pagoda as nobody seemed to know about it. It helps if someone could translate the names of attraction in Hangul. Remeber..Persistence is the key word!

Enjoy hiking!
