I spent the first full week of 2012 in southern South Korea and had time over the weekend to tour around the cities of Busan and Sacheon. Although I have visited this area in the past, this is the fist chance I had to be a tourist, I decided to go to Beomeosa Temple, a famous temple in Busan.
Because of my lack of planning, I did not know Beomeosa was a trailhead to other places higher up on the mountain, for example, the North Gate at 1.6km away. Thought to myself, "wow, North Gate, got to check that out!"
I decided to give it a go, this is a view from near the summit looking North over Busan.
