Walking the Chirisan Doollae-Gil – Overview of Section 13, Daechuk to Weonbucheon


What to Expect

Section 13 boasts the enjoyment of walking across the beautiful valley of Agyang-Myeon, and one of the two optional paths here goes by 최참판대 of the Toji (토지) series of novels. From there, the hike up to the top of the mountain ridge is pretty intense, but the path is pretty short and there are a lot of nice accommodation options on the road down from Weonbukcheon.

Getting There

Take the bus from elsewhere in the country to Hadong or Gurye and then get to Daechuk Weonbucheon by the buses the ply the road between Hadong and Gurye. It's also about an hour walk from both Daechuk and Weonbucheon to Hwagae, which has it's own small inter-city bus station
