Temple Stay

Overview

Adventure Korea has been organizing temple stay trips for over 15 years, so we can help you organize the best temple stay trip for your group. Learn about traditional Korean customs and Korean Buddhism, and participate in some spiritual cleansing.
You can choose from any temple in Korea from the temple stay website (templestay.org or eng.templestay.com). We can also organize other activities that fit the area you will be in if you want to do more than just a temple stay.
