The entrance to Dondal Mountain(돈달산) is less than ten minutes away from our place, and although it's not the largest mountain, the whole way to the top is pretty much just all stairs. It's a short hike, but certainly enough to wake your legs up and make you realize that you're pretty out of shape. Not that I'm out of shape at all..... ;)
At the top is a great view of Jeomchon. Although it was cloudy this morning, we still had a beautiful sight to see.
On our way down we stopped by a temple that is at about the halfway point of the mountain. There were people in the temple, and we could hear some of the Buddhist chants in progress. Pretty interesting to hear, and definitely something that you don't typically stumble across when you're hiking back in the US.

|I love these trees! Kind of similar looking to the cherry blossoms, but the flowers are different.|
