The 2nd Scenic View – Daewonsa Valley

The 2nd Scenic View DAEWONSA VALLEY

The valley surrounds Daewonsa Temple, which is Korea’s representative Zen meditation temple for female monks. Daewonsa Valley is situated on the mouth of the hiking path of the Jirisan Mountain. Its ice cold and crystal clear stream water, soothing sounds of stream water flowing over the oddly shaped rocks and stones, sounds of wind blowing over the majestic Geumgang Pine Trees, and the beautiful chirping sounds of the birds form a harmonious choir all year round and during the autumn season, the crimson autumn leaves covering the mountain provide an exceptional view of the surrounding landscape.
