Locate near with other tourist spot. I think it is a so small forest that you can walk around 15-20 mins and you will already finished seeing everything. It's like a miniature of a forest and an ancient house in it.

Not much for a forest & things to see. Just a stroll to get to Choseongdam Observatory. The surrounding areas like the Gyeongju Hyanggyo & Gyodong Choessigotaek are much more interesting.

This forest feels like in the storybook tales. Big old trees, love the "green" nature smell that totally refreshed us. Bring the...More

We spent hours here, walking around this forest and its surroundings. It has beautiful ancient trees, pasture, fields of wild flowers abound. I took some truly amazing pics here. So relaxed with a few school children and visitors. Bring a camera enjoy the freshness!

Passed by this forest as part of our very sedate experience on the "insect bus" that took us all round the surrounding park. The forest is steeped in history and today serves as a pleasant place where we rested in the shade of the ancient...More
