Cheongdo Rail Bike: One of the attractions of Gayasan National Park that attracts many people is the Cheongdo Bicycle Rail, not far from Gayasan. This is also another way to enjoy the red leaves season, if you fatigue your feet, you can sit on the bike (still tired but much better), enjoy the scenery and enjoy the cool weather, a bit of cold.

The last place we would like to recommend also is a national park where has Korea’s largest mountain – Jirisan. Jirisan is translated as the mountain of elders and wise men. The mountain is known as one of the three legendary mountains in Korea (the other two are Geumgangsan & Hallasan). This mountain has long been sacred and is considered a sacred place of the Royal family. Jirisan Mountain spread over 3 provinces of Gyeongsangnam-do, Jeollabuk-do and Jeollanam-do, so many people like to walk through the night to feel more complete than the natural scenery and natural atmosphere of this mountain.
