Autumn in Korea

Baekyangsa Temple: More Autumn Foliage

Locating within Naejansan National Park, Baekyangsa is the second location where you may see more autumn foliage. You may see the mountain backdrop with colorful autumn foliage and reflection on a couple of ponds, walk on the bridges, and visit some culture assets of South Korea.

The special photo spots are the “pond” area by the entrance and the pavilion at the temple. It is easily accessible from Naejangsan but you will have to spend at least one more day on Jeongeup/Naejangsan to be able to visit. You won’t be able to do a day trip to cover both Naejangsan National Park and Baekyangsa Temple even though the later is part of the National Park.

Transportation: You may take a 10 minutes train from Jeongup then switch bus that goes to Baekyangsa Temple. However, the bus schedule is not very frequent.
Alternatively, you may take a taxi from Naejangsan or Jeongeup. It will be a fixed fee usually.
