Serpent's Tail Half Day Tour

Duration: 4 Hours  /  Groups: 1-6 people  /  Difficulty: Moderate

Nestled between Hwaaksan (Gyeonggi Province's highest peak) and Seokryongsan, is Jomurak Valley. We will hike up Jomurak Valley for one hour, along a shady and gently inclined trail, until we reach one of its steeper tributaries. After enjoying a rest, we will then go off trail and make a short but steep ascent to get up above the waterfalls. Once reaching a point where very few ever venture to go, we begin our wet descent of Bukho Falls. On this tour, we tackle two waterfalls in 5 stages. 

We'll then show you some of the more secluded and beautiful swimming spots in the valley on our return back to the start.
