Wonmi mountain is an oasis of this frail pink flowers. A garden of azaleas, cherry blossoms, forsythias amd other wild flowers. Walking to the top was an easy hike and the view was awesome. It overlooks the entire landscape of Bucheon stadium and the city of Bucheon.
Our Saturday hike, though the festival was held a week ago, was still one of those fun weekened getaways. Still crowded, as expected, but we did took home tons of photos.
Direction: Take Line 7 to Bucheon Stadium station, exit 2. Walk straight about 5 minutes and turn left on the sign of Azalea Garden.
