A narrow path
this path for the small temple(眞佛庵).
I walked this path.
I trekked Mt. Palgong where surround with northern Dae-gu, on last weekend.
There are many buddhism temples and statues in Mt. Palgong like Namsan(hill) in Gyeung-ju. but Mt. Palgong is much higher than Namsan in Gyeung-ju. the height is 1,192meters. Many Dae-gu people like trekking Mt.Palgong during four seasons.
so, there are many routes to trek Mt. Palgong for every direction. many people trek on southern, eastern and western route that are well-made by forest rangers.
but I trekked on northern route that are reforming by forest rangers. some people trekked on this route. I felt tranquility all my trekking without human noise and concentrated on natural sounds - bird's sing, the sound of wind, the sound of water flow and the sound of my footsteps - .
I stopped by a small buddhism temple on my way. this temple is very cute and have a good natural scenery. I saw some monks to prepare winter season studying.
monks have to study Buddhism scriptures and Zen during winter season.
On the peak, I could watch landscapes of all direction. the air was very cold. I felt chilly. but I prepared a bottle which can keep warm water. I
the small temple
this is a small temple which I stopped by on my way.
ate a portable noodle with hot water, hot coffee. It was very good. the hot soup of noodle make me warm on the peak. after break time on the peak, I came down the mountain. It was four hours trekking on northern route of Mt. Palgong.
P.S. I recommend many foreigners in Dae-gu this trekking.
