Visit temples, waterfalls, and historical sites along a valley hike with spectacular views during all four seasons.

Mureung Valley (무릉계곡) is a beautiful stretch of land between Dutasan Mountain and Cheongoksan Mountain outside the coastal town of Donghae.   The valley can be reached by personal car or catch a direct bus from the Donghae Bus Terminal.  There are several hiking courses here ranging from 25-60min, but most follow a similar loop around the valley.  A great resource for travelers with a cell phone is to call the free tourist information hotline 24/7 by dialing 1330.  

The valley can be accessed year-round and offers unique and beautiful sights during each season.  However, take care if hiking in winter because snow and ice can affect climbing conditions and safety.
