This beautiful Confucian academy was founded by one of the Ryu family from the nearby Hahoe village. Take the 246 bus there, and if staying in the village, hike back 4 kms through the forest and then fields of rice, millet, pumpkins and edamame beans.

After a bumpy ride we arrived at this scenic place. A nice authentic retreat for confusianist scholars of the old days. Just walk around the premises and let the beauty of the place and its natural surroundings soak in. Loved it.

This is one of the most beautiful private academies in Chosun dynasty. In fact the front scenery is too beautiful to study hard :) Though it is worth seeing, visiting is somewhat restrictive: you should get before six pm through an unpaved and winding road.

We were lucky to visit this wonderful place with a local who explained a lot to us. It was so peaceful and calm with the river and mountains nearby, well worth the visit - easy to fit in a day visit with Andong Hahoe village.

A stunning location looking over the river and across to mountains fringed with bare-branched trees, like toothbrush bristles. The buildings are simple and beautifully-crafted, and the cherry blossom set them off to perfection. The place is so peaceful that you can imagine the scholars of...More
