Pine Tree Forest Trail The time required 4~5hours
This route starts from Bogwangni, passes through the forest road called Namut-gil and eventually reaches Tomb of King Myeongjugun. All pillars of old temples and royal palaces in Korea were made of Geumgang pine trees. The trunks of large pine trees were cut off and used as pillars after being given Eomyeong (a King’s Command) to restore Gyeongbokgung Palace, as it was done long time ago. And then Eomyeongjeong Pavilion was erected on that place. Pine tree forest trail does not make you feel tired because your energy is boosted by the spirit of the trees.
