Naeso Temple (내소사)

Naesosa

Naesosa is a famous temple in a national park near the west coast of South Korea. It’s a great stop on your way to Gosapo Beach.

White Sheep Temple

Baegyangsa

On a rare, good-weather day I caught a bus heading north from Gwangju to Naejangsan National Park (내장산). Despite being stung by a giant insect, that I’ve never seen before or since, it was one of my most memorable days in Korea.

Baegyangsa (South Korea)

When I was in Korea several summers ago I did two walks through Mt. Mudeung National Park, each in different directions.
