We had a great day exploring the palace area and grounds. It was very peaceful and scenic. This is a long drive from Seoul however if you are for any reason, great place to walk around.

We visited the famous Wiljeongsa Temples set among the Fir trees forest by taxi from Alpensia ski fields.

The bridges crossing a small stream to reach the temples has the best scenic views. Within the temples ground, perhaps it was the day we visited, there was little snow, the forests looked yellowish due to winter season. Temples are on smaller scale. The fir tree track is easy walking.

There was no activities at all when we visited. Also close by Trout Festival has been delayed due to winter warmer than usual, river yet to froze so fishing choices were very limited.

Temples are accessible by car, taxi. There
is bus but service is infrequent, so if you are press for time, taxi is better. The taxi costs $35000 wons around 30 mins one way. Return trip could be arranged via information centre at car park and again costs $35,000 wons. Woljeongsa entrance costs $3000 won adult, youth $500 won and child under 7 years old free. If budget is a concern, perhaps consider other alternatives.

A korean friend of mine said she had experienced temple stay at Woljeongsa Temple before and it was an amazing place to be at. I would really love to experience that one day. Been there and loved the nature surrounds! It's like a disconnection from the busy city and you focus just on yourself within the nature.

This is a very sacred place for the Buddhist. You can see monks praying, so be respectful and also take off shoes. The area is quite beautiful.
