PLEASE NOTE: People who want to visit Neungpo for the Cherry Blossoms can catch our bus from Wahyeon or Sea World at the times below. If you want to skip the Cherry blossoms or you want to visit the museums, you can take a public bus back to Wahyeon Beach. Wahyeon is less than 10 minutes’ drive from Jisepo and the bus fare is only KRW 1 300. A taxi is an option for a group up to 4 people per taxi, but there are not always that many taxis around.
16:00 Depart Wahyeon for Neungpo (Cherry Blossoms, Tulip and Sculpture Park and finish at Jangseungpo Harbor). It’s a one-way route, so the DEPARTURE POINT IS DIFFERENT.
It is a stunning trail with spectacular sea-, cliff- and flower-views. It’s an easy walk along the road and doesn’t involve strenuous mountain hiking, but if you hate walking, stay on the beach or at the museums in Jisepo. The walk takes less than an hour, but we allow for an hour and a half, so there is plenty of time to take photos etc.
16:10 Sea World departure for Neungpo (above).
16:40 Arrive at Jangseungpo. Walk all the way along the coastal road to the sculpture park at Neungpo and we will meet you there at 17:50. This means if you walk at an easy pace and take pictures, you will have enough time to enjoy the stunning scenes without having to rush.
17:50 Meet at the Sculpture Park (It’s right on the main coastal road and there are signs as well. It’s impossible to get lost unless you turn off from the main road).
18:10 Depart from Jangseungpo Harbor. BBQ fires start.
18:40 Arrive at Wahyeon Beach.
19:00 BBQ starts with music etc. Lamb and Steak Packs with potato salad, mixed green salad, fried veggie rice and BBQ toast with cheese, tomato and onion. SELF BBQ! Ask us when to put the meat on and take it off if you really don’t know. Braai (SA BBQ culture) requires participation as part of a socializing experience and it’s a great way to meet people. Special dietary requests can skip the meat and get more of all the other goodies.
