Jeongseon, South Korea!

Jeongseon, South Korea!

So this past weekend we had a long break so my friend decided to do several day trips and check out the attractions close to home. Living in a small town in Korea you have to get creative with the places you go to visit. We decided to check out the town of Jeongseon, its attractions included a rail-bike, zip lining, a sky walk, caves and a few temples. My friend and I took a bus from our town to Jeongseon and decided our priorities would be the rail-bike, zip-lining, and the sky walk. Once we arrived at the bus terminal in Jeongseon we were told to walk down the street and at the next intersection a yellow shuttle bus will come and pick us up to take us to the sky walk and the zip lining. It was a beautiful day and a holiday as well so we had to wait about an hour in line for the sky walk. It costs about $5000 won. It was really cool and very beautiful the views were breathtaking.

This is not like zip lining in Costa Rica where you are just going tree to tree and can’t really see below you. This is a 300 foot drop over mountains and a river as well as some road. The feeling is exhilarating and the views are worth it. IMG_20140510_205908
