ITINERARY

Sample Itinerary
*This itinerary varies depending on your train departure time from Seoul
*All tours are private. Tours take between 3 and 4.5 hours (from the entrance of the valley) depending on the size and ability of the group.

*Jomurak Valley
Nestled between Hwaaksan (Gyeonggi Province’s highest peak) and Seokryongsan. We will hike up Jomurak Valley for one hour, along a shady and gently inclined trail, until we reach one of its steeper tributaries. After enjoying a rest, we will then go off trail and make a short but steep ascent to get up above the waterfalls. Once reaching a point where very few ever venture to go, we begin our wet descent of Bukho Falls. On this tour, we tackle two waterfalls in 5 stages. 
We’ll then show you some of the more secluded and beautiful swimming spots in the valley on our return back to the start.
