Hi, I will be going to Korea end of Jul and wants to do the above walking trail #3 from Inwol to Guemgye. The route is as below:
Inwol-myeon → Junggun Village → Suseongdae Valley → Janghang Village → Maedong Village → Sanghwang Village → Changwon Village → Geumgye Village
I'm thinking of taking an intercity city bus bound for Jirisan (Baekmu) from Dong Seoul Bus Terminal on 1 Aug morning. I read that the travel time is 3hr 20 mins so i will reach in the afternoon. As the trail is quite long, i don't think i can complete in half a day.
My questions are:
1) I need to find accomdation along the trail and i read that Maedong village can be a stop for the night. Can anyone advise how to find the accomdations and make reservations?
2) If reservations are not possible, how easy will it be to find a place to stay along the way as i heard that summer is peak period?
3) Alternatively, should i stay one night at starting point Inwol and start the next day instead? How can i book my Inwol accomdation?
4) How can i get back to Seoul from Guemgye?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can advise me.
