Buddhist Temple at Mount Sorak

About one and a half hours drive away from Seoul, South Korea, is beautiful laid-back Mount Sorak. This mountain region offers mesmerizing views and numerous hiking treks for the nature lovers, and at the foot of the mountain are various Buddhist temples from centuries of old. Here are some scenic snaps from the foot of the mountain, featuring lush green landscapes, colorful guardian statues (left, third row) and a magical water fountain (right, second row). Be sure to come back next week as we bring you more snaps, this time from the top of Mount Sorak itself!

    I leave a response each time I appreciate a article on a site or
    if I have something to add to the conversation. Usually it is caused by the
    sincerness communicated in the post I browsed. And on this post
    Travel Korea – Buddhist Temples at Mount Sorak | Unearthing Asia.
    I was actually moved enough to create a leave a responsea
    response 😛 I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me or do some of these remarks look like coming from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list every one of all your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
