The most incredible things about Busan are its multiple forest trails. As small and high mountains surround the city, many hidden forest trails extend in each village. Gubongsan healing forest trail is located at one of the unfamous forests in Dong-gu, Busan. Enjoy a time of healing and relaxation at Dong-gu’s forest trail filled with the fragrance of hinoki cypress.
Gubongsan Healing Forest Trail begins where the mountain road that crosses the mountainside meets Gubongsan hiking trail. Five healing forest trails expand out from the Healing Forest Information Center, with each course takes around 30 minutes to 1 hour. Flat soil trails, as well as neatly paved deck trails, allow visitors to take comfortable strolls along the forest.
Tall hinoki cypress trees densely populate the forest. Once you enter the healing forest trail, refreshing energy covers your body and fully recharges it. Rest for a moment in the middle of the thick forest, and take in a breath of the rich phytoncide. Enjoy the lovely chirped songs of birds, and relax in the sunlight that shines through the tree shades.
As you walk along the trail, you will soon encounter various therapy facilities. A therapy field, formed with the theme of “healing,” provides relaxation amid nature. Besides, the five healing forest trails are connected to Choryangcheon Stream. Each course has a small hill and offers a delightful walking experience. From Choryangcheon Stream, the water flows down to the foot. Similar to an open-air bath, this is a great place for soaking your tired feet in the cool water that comes down from the valley while admiring the forest’s green scenery.
Sightseeing from the hot spring, lounging chair, and hammock is also fun in itself. Enjoy a time of meditation in these healing spaces surrounded by the hinoki cypress forest, where the sounds of birds, water, and wind comfort the mind. Lounge in peace and tranquility amid the greenery.
The fresh fragrance of hinoki cypress fills the air even while climbing the wooden staircases that cross over the healing field. The amount of phytoncide is overflowing in this area. Check out the dense forest on along the road, and continue walking to reach the Healing Forest Observatory that provides an unobstructed scenic view of Busanhang Port. Don’t miss this spectacular landscape!
