Take the Oncheongung cable car to the top of the mountain. Then go on a super hike for nearly 8km along the top of the mountain ridge. Enjoy a view of the sea and the city below the whole way. Lots of amazing places to eat with open air restaurants. Follow signs, and you can end your hike in Beomosa... More

Wandered around one beautiful fall afternoon. It's old, but still in use. There were a lot of students there and apparently they have weekend and week-long experience Buddhism

We took the metro to the Beomeosa stop and then a taxi to the temple. There is a bus, which we took down from the temple. You can walk to it but it is an uphill walk. Once you get to the temple, it is in the mountains, with a lovely stream running through it. Lots of old and restored... More

This temple is up in a mountain and still lots of walking even though the temple ground is not too big. Very ancient temple with beautiful architecture and the place is very windy yet tranquil. You can reach by taking subway line 1 and alight at Beomeisa Station exit 7 turn right and walking further ahead on the left you... More

Please wear good walking shoes or even hiking type shoes. The first set of temples have placards explaining the history. You can even sign up in advance to stay in the temple as a meditation retreat. There is a path off to the far left of the temple that takes you up a hill/mountain called the sea of rocks that... More

First time in Korea, and we loved the markets and street food, but we also wanted to see the historical side of Busan. As people said, definitely worth the visit! We decided to walk from Beomeosa station after seeing the "3km" sign. We had no idea it would be a hike up (we are not seasoned hikers) It was drizzling... More

Although snow covered this tour was very interesting for someone who travels all of the time but rarely takes the time to sight see.

Well worth travelling to this oasis of calm on the Northern edge of S Korea's second biggest city. Visited using metro (Line 1 to Beomeosa Station - Exit 5 or 7) and local bus.(Number 90). You have to walk up the hill to find the bus stop and it can be quite popular. Buses are every 15-20 minutes. Again, there... More

It was November 14th, and the hills were totally alive with fall color, which added to the beauty. Very colorful temples on site. Not worthy of a long visit.

Went up here on a very hot day but what I discovered which is quite popular here is picnics on the rocks by a little stream flowing from uphill. Very peaceful place and the view is gorgeous. Also if you love nature, you are literally in the middle of it. There's a bus from downtown bringing people to the Temple.... More
